I dont claim to be a professional hooper,but I have done quite a few,Im sure somone here knows a better way. I hang my hoop on a nail so its about chest or alittle higher,I only open my hoop about 2/3 rds.the size I expect when finished, I usually put a couple hooks in the nose or eye area then the bottom then the sides,If you have strong hands and sharp hooks you can stick em through the hide by hand, I have arthritis in my hands and stick my hookkole before I start. Just lay the hide on a 2x4 and make a hole evry1/2 inch or 3/4 inch.After ya get all your hooks in, You can pull downward and out for your size, Dont get it too tight,have it so the middle of the hide is alittle floppy when ya shake it. Commercial stabilizers work well. But I prefer a 6 ft.piece of cord,tie and s hook in one end then about 14 inches up from the hook make a loop,like atruckers hitch,then clamp on another s hook. You can hook one side then the other,run the loose end through the loop and pull until desired oval shape is reached,then make acouple half hitches and hang it up high,dries faster than boards, I use both though. Hooping takes a little longer but the hides seem to dry faster and u can hoop em whemn the fur is wet. Sorry no video.
