    What is the best way to remove Bobcat ear cartlidge.Should it be done after tanning and what is best method.Thanks Butch
     
  2. I wouldn't remove the cartlidge. Invert the ears then bondo... OOPS, did I say Bondo!?!
     

  3. I never remove the cartlidge until after it is tanned. I want the ears attached when it comes back from the tannery. Remove it just like a deer. Here is a perfect example of how manys ways people do things everyone has there own way. I never use bondo not saying it is wrong but I just dont.

    I also remove after tanning, just peel it up and off with your fingers.

    oldterryr Terry's in Heaven with no worries at all.

    after tanning with a VERY SHALLOW cut - if you can grab on with fingernails so much the better - i dont normally do this for commericial mounts but i have done it just to see if it could be done - i now use the liners where you leave the cartialge in from ozark woods - look excellent - bond with 5 minute epoxy (taxidermy aisle at wal mart)
