Pretty good way to do it. I'll try that next time I hunt for tree rats.

I've been skinning them like that since my dad showed me in the 70's. It's amazing how hard it is to skin one if you don't know how to do it.

We had a group at our farm in WV last year squirrel hunting...and we had a pile of squirrels. There must have been 30 or 40. It took me about 1/2 hour to skin the whole pile...with someone else gutting them.

13pt...In that video, the fella doesn't do much cutting after he gets through the tail bone. It makes it a little easier if you cut down the back legs a little.

Thats how we have always skinned squirrels. Another little tip that helps keep the hair off them is throw your squirrels in a bucket of water for a few minutes before you start. That way any hair that gets on them will be in clumps and be easy to spot and get off.

Jacob...that's a good tip, and works incredibly on rabbits, too. The fur on rabbits is so dang light and fluffy that it just floats around when you skin them. If you soak the bunny first, then the fur isn't so light.
