I won't debate what your taxidermist told you as far as measurements go....but the proper way is to do it skin off. No biggie....I'm sure he knows what he is doing.

As far as the neck measurement goes....it is just a good one to have for reference. I've mounted 4 lifesize bears and didn't have any measurements from the hunter. That makes it a little interesting but that is typically how it goes.

If a taxidermist doesn't know how to figure out the correct measurements just from the hide......he is in for a lot of work.
