Mike I prefer a short "Y" incision to a "7" but that's just my preference. You need to start the stitching where you started the incision. Keep them tight, even, and close as possible and you'll do fine. Good luck.

7 cut my preference

I start my stitches at the base of the antlers and run the thread around the pedicel so it cinches the hide up & under the burr.Continue stitching to the other antler and repeat.No bunching, slips or creeps while drying .
