I have tried that way, it does not seem to work real well for me. Mostly I now skin them when they are warm. I use a pair of side cutter pliers or butcher scissors, cut their feet, & tail off. Cut them across the back, pull the hde off then cut their head off. Gut them, put them in a plastic bag. Throw them in my game bag.Wash my hands with hand sanitizer. The whole process don't take much longer than a minute.When I get back to my truck I throw them in my cooler of ice. I think skinnning them while they are warm is the key.

Just don't cut deeper than the skin.
If you do then the meat pulls away, and the skin will not come off.

learned that way as a youngster from my Dad in 1963, squirrel hunting was my favorite pass time back then.

there's one guy i know of.he'll make his cuts along both legs,and onto where they meet up where the tail is.and of course cut the tail bone.and cut the feet off.then he will use 550 paracord or some rope of same thickness,to tie the legs to a clothes line post.this way the squirrel will stay put.and that allows him to use both hands for removing the skin/fur..
