Re: Skin coyotes with air.

We've used air to pull {tube} the pelts back in the early 1970's.... kinda thought everyone did it.. fast and works great. About 100 psi and your in business. Back them we had to take them into a hunting partern's Radiator Repair shop, now days a little portables {DeWalt} in the back of the truck works just fine. I did have a friend that tried it on a deer, he said; it worked for most of the hide and made the job a lot less hassle.

I have seen it done on a goat...If it will work on a goat it will work on a deer.

Wow.
100psi !

What does that do to the south end of a north bound varmint? any surprises? with that much pressure
I would have to stand off to one side in case there was an internal combustion. HA HA.

Good one !!! made me laugh.

I was concerned that if the air pushes the skin out it has to push in on the body and was wondering
if this had happened to anyone. (Little pellets coming out at Mach 1).

If so, it would be funny to set someone up for the results.

I know, That would be evil (But still funny).

JE,
Nah… the air pressure works like a “liberal” it takes the path of least resistance; which is between the hide and flesh. I understand your thought concept and yes it would be funny.

Re: Skin coyotes with air.

When I was akid on the farm we used air to skin hogs and calves. Since I have used on deer, and turkeys. Seems to cut skiining time in about in half. If you use this on turkeys, you will soon learn go easy and slow, they tend to pop.
