What is the proper way to sew up the back seam on a deer?

is what i use with great success. Without being able to draw a picture it would be hard for me to describe even though it is a simple stitch. It basicly is a side to side stitch pushing the needle up through from the LEATHER SIDE keeping stitches 1/8"-1/4" apart. Every 4 or 5 stitches pull that thread hard. Maybe somebody knows of a picture on a vendor site? Hope this helps out some.
Maybe online too.
tap your seam with a mallet after a couple of days
it will roll the seam down a help the hair lay flat again
dont forget to use a good hide paste like Epo-Grip
there are several ways you can sew using the paste
it depends how long your y cut is
i add a little as i sew and slide wax paper just ahead of my seam
its kind of hard to explain but once you start trying it youll
