    its personal preference... I prefer to dorsal mine. .Then I just put them on a form like pulling on jammies...

    It depends on the position of the mount

    X2 on the Dorsal cut..I have skinned out a few of coons and it seams to be the easiest, but that could be perception. A winter coon has hair long and thick enough 'especially on the back' to hide even the uglyest stitches. Watch the feet, around the toes gets a little tricky because of the 'thumb' that they have. I always cut through right there..
