Here is how I do mine. I make my own hoops out of 3/8 round stock and use hog rings every inch or so. Then I pin the leg holes with a piece of cardboard. Hope this helps.

i think the hoops look better on the small ones this one didnt reach the line so it was hard to eye without lots of experience

I wonder why some people still stretch them round? The auction house want them oval. They even give out patterns.

My hoops are like Wiley Red 3/8 round stock, they started out round, but I'll bent them to get the oval shape. I use a pattern board to decide the size of the beaver then change over to a hoop. I'll then expand the hoop to where it needs to be on size. Pin the leg holes. I found that using a leather hole punch I can punch the holes and then hook the hog rings. Got tired of sticking myself with them.

you can also notice that the pic of the hooped beaver i posted....the beaver IS NOT round. I obtained the oval shape by using a piece of string or tensioning bar. I would suggest the tensioning bar if you are going to strech them on wire, the string will leave a memory in the fur that shows a line once the pelt is dry. The line doesn't show on the pelt side just the fur side.

I could see an advantage to using a heavier strecher like posted above. Im guessing the 3/8 rod holds its shape well once you form it.
