Coyote ears...Need help please

I am doing my first attempt at home tanning on a coyote pelt. I don't know what to do with the ears. Can you skin out the cartlidge or can you leave it. I don't want the hair to slip on the ears so what is my best option?

i dont think it is nessary just for a tanned wall hangar, just remove the meat from the ear butts and salt heavy and you should be fine. keep in mind they will shrivel and become hard as a rock though.

Turn the ear inside out, and leave the cartlidge

Before you are totally done with the tanning, invert the ear to somewhat of the normal status and then allow it to dry.
