I at this point use wire for everything but beaver. Once I get rich, I'll go with wood because you are able to get more uniform sizes,,,,I think.

I like wood personally, and I use it for coon, skunk, the rare possum, and red squirrels. The coon stretchers are adjustable. I don't trap muskrats but if I did I'd most definately use wire strecters.

I prefer wire. I can get better length out of wire. I think the fur looks better. I like the way the wire stretched fur is, and my buyers prefer hides stretched on wire.
