drumming in ears

Discussion in 'Beginners' started by ada2453, Oct 30, 2014.

  1. I just mounted an antelope and there is some drumming in the ears. I obviously used to big of an earliner but I was just wondering if after it dries all the way is the inner ear going to split open or will it probably stretch and dry that way? Also is there any way to fix it without taking the ear apart?

    A turkey injector filled with epoxy or hide past is what I did in the past. I'd fill the drumming area until it was coming out of the hole I punched in with needle. Sometimes it would soften the area up if I used hide paste and could shape to a concave form to get some of the flatness out as the glue dried over a day or so.

  3. That's a great idea! Thankyou

    Just rehydrate the inside, split it open and glue it down, put a little filler in the slit and blend, no drumming at all then.
  5. I think that's what I'll do. Thanks Low T
