    Re: skin a squirrel

    this is rather simple.
    lay squirrle on its back.
    cut in middle of belly all the way around back and back to belly.like a belt cut.
    grab skin in left hand
    grab the other(right) side in right hand.
    Pull like the hulk ripping off his shirt.
    the skin will wrap around the head and feet just snip them off(head ,feet) and the inards should come out nice and easly now.

    batter up fry and injoy.
    Pm me if this didn't make since to you.

    I guess that was the Georgia method. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    As a boy in Alabama, I was taught to just make a one inch cut on the back and slip one finger from each hand under the different sides of the skin and pull in opposite directions. Pull till the skin starts over the front and rear legs. Using a finger, separate the skin from the front of the front legs and the rear of the rear leg. Pull the skin down the legs until you reach the last joint and then whack the feet off. If you are going to eat the head and brains, pull the skin on over the head. If not, then pull the skin until the neck is exposed and cut the head off. Before frying the head, cut the whiskers off and gouge out the eyeballs.

    When skinning a young of the year squirrel be careful not to pull the squirrel apart at the rib cage. Things get very messy then. Same thing if you should shot a squirrel in the backbone, it may pull apart.

    I always skinned squirrels using a wooden surface of some kind so you could use a heavy knife to chop off the neck, feet and tail.

    take sharp pocket knife and scrape hair off bottom of tail joint where it meets the butt.

    Make a cut thru tail bone but not cutting top of tail hide.

    small incision cut from tail bone down each back leg to ankles. (Do squirrels have ankles?) [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Stand on squirrel tail and pull upwards. front half of hide pulls all the way down to head and feet.

    Either skin head or cut off and cut off front feet.

    Squirrel will have "V" shaped belly flap remaining. Grasp and pull back to back feet. Cut back feet off.

    No hair no fuss.
