I dont know anything about krowtann but I would say that it would work fine for flat skins. I dont think you need to remove the ear cartilidge unless its a larger game. When I see professional work on coyotes the ears are usually hard so that is what I think I wouldn't take my advice untill someone agree's but I hope I am right and I helped


Tim, what do you mean by thiey are always busy?

It the phone line always busy?

Since I know the owner and am aquainted with the works, understand the works do not do taxidermy.

Do you have a tumbler? If so then yes I think it would work fine.

Ears on a rug are not any different that any other animal its up to you how you do the ears.


I called Ozark Woods Yesterday

I can't recall his name, but I talked to a nice fellow from there yesterday morning and he answered all the questions I had about Krowtann. He said you could make rugs from the hides you tan with this method, but you need to also buy the oil that they sell to put on them. (You don't need the oil if you are going to mount the hide) He said it wouldn't be quite as plyable as a hide from a tannery, but that it did a pretty good job. After reading John C's posts about his success with the product, and the answers I got from the company, I ordered some Krowtann and a bottle of the oil to try out.
