Default GOLFBALL SKINNING TRICK???????

Can someone explain the GOLFBALL skinning trick to me? I have read a few posts about it and have not a clue? THANKS

Basically you cut the skin free around the neck and hooves with the deer hanging by it's neck.
Free the skin a few inches below your cut. Take a rock or golfball and place it inside the loose skin and push out so you can clearly see the imprint of the ball/rock in the hids. Tie a rope around that pushed out piece of hide with the ball/rock still in it. Make sure your knot is tight.

Tie the other end of the rope to a truck/4-wheeler/tractor. Slowly drive forward and the deer will pretty much skin itself.



NOTE: Make sure whatever the deer is hanging from is strong enough to withstand the pull!!!

Here are some videos demonstrating different variation on the theme:
Video 1
Video 2
Video 3


#3 is probably a bit faster than I would do it, but it seems to work fine for them.


Here's a website that explains it all step by step really well with pics.

Yep, video #2 and #3 are pretty much how we do it too. We cut the legs off right before the knee joint and make slits along the hide. We also use a dog choke collar instead of a rope around the rock and then a chain. But it works just as good either way.

Watched the videos and the interest is up. Just might give it a try this year. Now if someone could give a hint like that on plucking geese I would be in the money,

I've seen someone pull the head clean off, although I'm pretty sure he didn't make the cuts correctly

Well i dont have a trick for geese but for upland birds after they are freshly killed stand on their wings with their back on the ground and just pull on the legs and the legs and guts come out all at once.
