I have most every kind of stretcher board known to mankind but I don't have one for Badger. I caught one yesterday in a cat set and now have to stretch him. I want to leave it cased. What can I use for a board? Will a big coon board work or what do you recommend?

I use a "Jumbo" coon board and stretch it cased on almost all of mine. If you just caught it, it should be prime and you should get a fair price for it.

It is a pretty strange looking animal. It has no stripe at all and it is nearly all white. Strange color but beautiful fur.

I've always used an adjustable coyote board.

I see that everyone is a comedian today. I can't belive that the short bus riding duo of 2poor and wheelers hasn't chimed in yet. They must have their tongue stuck to a flagpole or something.

I stretched it on a 4XL coon board and it meased 31" from the nose to the base of the tail. Any idea what size it will be graded as?

The only reason I want to see pics is...

Well...there are a few reasons...

First, he says "I got a couple cats". I really want to see these "cats" he's talking about. Got a sneaking suspicion they are of the calico or persian variety.

Next, it's a badger. And interestingly, it doesn't have a stripe... smirk

You need to keep the guy in line and don't let him have too much puter time. smile

I told you, 2poor must have caught another blinddeafanddumb cat and is being treated at the hospital for shock...
