I'd like to rephrase my previous entry by saying that I don't skin the hogs at all. I cut the quarters off with skin. It's very easly done especially the front quarters, then all you have to do is remove the skin from them later. The rear quarters are a little tricky, but after a few tries it get easy too. First cut along the side to seperated the loose skin that connect the hind leg to the side(carefull not to poke the gut). Once you have done this just foll down close to where the bone socket is. This will be "key" once you find the socket cut through the middle of it's and it's all down hill from there. With a little help you can have all 4 quarters off in less than 5min. (really). Again once you have cut the loose skin on the sides to free the quarters, then just pull the legs out as far as you can..... I've taught my friends how to do this and they all love it. One day out hunting I went to pick up one of my friends from his blind. He was not @ the blind. He came out of the brush about 100yds down the sendero with gun sling stapped over his shoulders and pork quarters resting on his shoulders also.. Neat sight.. my 2bits...
