My buddy got a large male red yesterday, and i'm putting it up for him but i don't have any fox stretchers, right now because i was going to make some wood ones. The supply store near me only carries duke wire stretchers so i'm just going to pick one of them up tomorrow but what size do i need?

they just order trapping stuff and have it in stock, they have never trapped and don't know what most of it is for. it's a big fox and i don't want to run out of stretcher, for the tail

I personally have #5s Ive been using for fox. Plenty of room for big fox. You might have to squeeze it and modify if just a tad to get the right width dimesnion but thats not hard.

Depends on were you hook at.

95% off what I caught this year were on #4 wire. I did put a few on #5's, could of put them on #4's but then I would have had to hook them much higher than I like to.
There is only a few like this every season for me..
