Donít be. Good put up just takes practice. Post your pics, and you will get helpful tips. I guarantee every one of us has screwed up a good number of pelts learning proper put up.

Example, those rats I posted earlier in this thread, look at the noses. I didnít think to pin the nose in place on the end of that wire stretcher. Lesson learned!

I actually noticed those noses, and am curious if there's a big dock on that sort of thing?

I donít know for sure. I never have caught enough rats to really know if it hurt anything or not, but I imagine you probably lose a little on size? Guess it would depend on how theyíre measured. The most muskrats Iíve ever caught in a season was like 12 and most years I catch zero. I caught those in a stock pond when I lived in Montana, here in Nevada I donít target them at all, thereís not enough of them to make it worth my time.
