Hello everyone, I'm new to taxidermy still learning also do it as a hobby. Need some help with a deer I shot the other night, it has a mane about half way down its neck and its about 12'' long it don't go the entire length of his neck. My silly question is how do you make the incision, do you cut next to it or do you cut through the center because its center line of the neck where you would normally make long incision. Thanks in advance. Hope its not a dumb question. Thanks.
