Default Skinning Coyoties

I figure since I've been doing a lot of coyote hunting lately I should find out how to skin them properly, just in case I get one. Anybody have any tips?

I talked to the local fur buyer yesterday and he said to just bring the whole thing to him and he would skin it.
Works for me!

There is really only two ways that you skin a coyote. If you`re planing to sell the hide
to a fur buyer then you would case skin the
animal. To do this hang the animal from a
gambrel by the large tendon in the hind legs
and make an incision below the hock on the
back side of the leg. Using your knife cut a
line down the leg around the vent and up the
other leg to the same spot by the hock. Then
cut a circle around the leg at that spot and
peel the hide off down to the tail. Next go
to the front legs and cut a circle around each leg just above the dew claw. Don`t slit
these legs. Now just start pulling the hide
off the carcess like like pulling off a tight
fitting glove. Don`t forget to strip the bone
out of the tail. There is a tool called a tail stripper that makes this job a snap.
The other method of skinning is called pen
skinning; and you would skin it like you would skin a deer. Slitting it down the belly
ect. If your going to take it to your taxidermust I would suggest you take the whole animal in and let him do the skinning.
