Re: Coyote skinning

Air compressor the only way to do it.

Re: Coyote skinning

Thanks everyone for your advice. A couple of years ago I started using the air compressor, which does help. The worst part is always the back legs, which by Christmas is just about fused on, at least where I'm at.

I slit from the hock to the vent, grab the hock with a pair of linesmen plier and pull down, then step on that section and pull the leg up till it's down to the tail.

Re: Coyote skinning

i have skinned way over a thousand coyotes and in all this time have never found an easy way, especially if you want to take good care of the hide and have a sellable product. the only trick i have found is to skin them while they are still warm....much easier to peel than if they are in the back of a truck all day.... especially the big old males. our average size around here is 45lbs for males and 30-35 for females. it takes some doing to skin one. with fur prices what they are now, not worth the effort unless you just want to have them tanned as a trophy, then you will want to skin them down to the toenails...AJ

Re: Coyote skinning

Hang a yote(s) by his rear feet, get out your tailer, strip of f the tail fur from tail; next small cut into the rear paw hide opening it a small amount’…, blow in the air separating the hide from the carcass as much as possible; separate the rectal fur {us your knife}… cut the rear leg hide down to the rectum. Cut a slit above the front paws {like you did with the rear} hit them with air… now pull the hide from the top down, tubing the yote’s fur to the neck and head, continue to pull and cape out the head…. cut off at the noise.. You’re done.
If you want the paws on the pelt… open the paws up and cut the knuckle joints using as set of pointed dike pliers; leaving paws on the hide.
100 pis; seems to work just fine.
