Measurements from the skins, How do I?

Submitted by Jim on 6/28/99. ( jhowell@ptialaska.net )

I shot a wolf with a bow (sorry had to throw that in) a couple of years ago. I had it wet tanned within a couple of months and have been waiting to do a rug (hoping to practice on a fox but having problems getting a victim). I have since lost the measurements for the skull. I have the cleaned skull still and of course the hide, which should I use to get measurements for a rug shell? Also, I have some ptarmigan skins but no body, what is the best way to get measurments from just the skins? I know in the future I will write all measurements down in a book and guard it well. Did I say I was a beginner? Ha Thanks in advance. Jim
