Simple put use 5gals water some downy fabric softner and use some lysol or bacterial(basacral) in the water. Let it soak from an hour or more till the hide softens. Now as for the ears (the cartlidge) they don't like to soften up as fast sometimes. Take your hide out of the water,drain and then I put it in a plastic bag then in the fridge over night. This will rehydrate the rest of the hide.

Mount it

You may mount it or tumble a little of the water out of it if you
need to. It just depends on how much moisture you like in it.
