    Hey Guys, I have been sending my coyote and fox pelts to a tannery for a soft tan. The question that I have is how do I get the ears to be nice and perked up? They have been coming back all crinkled up. Any tips for me to prevent this?
    Thank you in advance!

    Turn the ears before sending them to the tannery and when they come back rehydrate them, remove the cartilage and glue in some ear liners or rehydrate them, leave the cartilage in and do the Bondo ear method or rehydrate them, leave the cartilage in and card them.
