    Is there anybody that can explain the process on how to make custom earliners?
    I am looking at trying to make my own earliner for an early season WT mount.
    Thanks Bob

    buy a material called celastic (mckenzie i think)- make template off of real ear out of cardboard and transfer to celastic material

    When you take the cartilage out of the deer, use it to make your template. I guess you could use the whole ear, but I've never done that. Label the template with the size of the deer, and the job number. Keep the template for later too, incase you need to do another one. Label the Left & Right sides too.
