    Trim or not?

    Giving this skin to Dad tomorrow for dad day (he shot it).
    I had it professionally tanned and it is nice and supple but I just think I should trim it to a smooth outline rather than the obvious stretching, tacking points.

    Opinions please..... freshly sharpened knife in hand.

    Leave it up to your dad! Let him judge and adjust to his taste! What is done cannot be undone.

    Hey if you really want it done NOW get whoever it is to send it to someone who can do it now.....if not well there is probably a reason you gave it to them and are willing to wait.

    Had this one sitting around for months now waiting for fathers day.......the dog has got quite attached to it.
