width of a coon?

Hey guys im new to trapping this year and have been catching some raccoon here and there. I was just wondering when your done skinning and fleshing your coon and put it on the strecther how wide is it supposed to be a couple inches from the base of the tail? I have been making mine about 8 inches wide just above the base of the tail, is that okay? or is it too narrow or too wide?
