Hi guys. Just wondering, who out there marks the different lengths or raccoon sizes on the board? In the past, I just measured each coon individually as I pinned him to the board. Now I think this way might be better. Have any of you tried this, and how did you do it.

I have a line for the breaks of 27 29, 32, 35 inches on every board that I put a coon on.

I do the same as bblwi except I use spray paint. All you do is cut a pattern of your stretcher out of cardboard and spray 27in-29in and 32in-35in. And keep 29in-32in covered with cardboard.
