Yeah, I wish it was just a little hole!(LOL) I thought I would share this for some that are having trouble with the bigger than average hole. This was a bullet graze that litterally blew open the skin. Most everything was there, I just had to piece it back together. In the second pic, you can see just how big the hole is. I thinned down the edges and cut out the actual graze as best I could without getting into hair patterns in the brisket too much. On holes like this, there is only so much you can do without distorting the brisket. Keep your stitches tight separating the hair as you push the needle though the other side. The third pic, you can see it pretty much finished minus alittle more grooming. It's not perfect, but it came out better than I thought it would.
