STRETCHING BOARDS— What can a trapper use for stretching boards for wolf, bear and smaller fur bearing animals when in the wilderness where he cannot get boards?
Bears are skinned “open” always and stretched out flat. In the woods you can nail the skin on the wall of the camp or you can lace it in a frame of poles. Wolves are also skinned open and may be stretched on the side of the camp. For all “cased” furs you can easily split boards out of dead cedar or any straight-grained, free splitting wood. Large boards are most easily made in two pieces with a wedge or go between.
