I've seen this style half and half board used for coon seems really handy don't need a belly board really the only saving I can see also should help the fur side dry a little better maybe we will see how well it works gonna make a bunch to try out here's the first prototype haha

Not to bust on you ,the duck tape will not help for the fur to dry good.

No wet rats are put up for me.if you think it will not be a problem for you then use it.I just letting know what I found in the past for not use of cardboard for the tail and for the front legs for coyote and fox to dry or wood and wire for stretches .By the way are there any plastic stretchers out there in use.From what I know of they are wood or wire.To me duct tape is like plastic.

Victor Quick-Dry Wire Stretchers By Animal Trap Co. Of America, Lititz, Pa. work best for me.

Peerless are also A Good Product.

Sleepy Creek will work but they lack the Handy Hanging Hook Feature that The Quick Dries have.

Duke Wire Stretchers are Junk of The Worst Kind.

The duct tape is on the fur side. Would not worry me, coydog. they do make commercial plastic mink stretchers.
