YOU MUST TURN THE EARS COMPLETELY. HANDLE EARS WITH SURGICAL GLOVES ON TO REDUCE HEAT BEING TRANSFERED FROM YOUR HANDS TO THE EARS. HEAT AND MOISTURE ARE A TAXIDERMIST'S NIGHTMARE.
I'm assuming you are pickling these skins, and the trouble is after that. Could you be more specific as to what you are doing? Green skins, air dried, salt dried? Why are the ears not turned? Freezer burned? Are you having difficulty with turning ears?
