I was wondering wether a hole in the fur from a dispatch shot will dock me value on that fur. most of my sets i try to drown or use bg's but for coyote and skunks i was wondering if a regular .22 lr is exceptable.


Thanks Rabbitt

You shouldn't be docked for one bullet hole.

Usually, buyers won't say "much" about up to 3 holes in a Coon hide. (22 cal size anyway)

To be safe, use a push-pin and pin each one closed when you put the hide on the board. They are barely noticeable when done properly..

Any cuts... ANY CUTS or tears in a hide can/should be pinned closed when the hide goes on the board also.

Oh --- The BENIFITS of WOOD !
