however your choices were dorsal or ventral and i would choose dorsal,,,less sewing = less seams...coyotes and the fox have long enough hair to cover your work..the only thing with a dorsal cut is splitting the tail,,,,and thats an argueable point,,,but i split mine,,on the underside...be carefull the tail can get twisted,,if you go with dorsal you'll want to take the head off the form to make it easier to get inside the skin,,do this with a "V" cut about midways down the neck,,,ruff up all edges and you can bondo back together once inside the skin,,,,hope this helps and good luck,,,,,jim


Thanks
