I didn't feel like dragging this guy the mile back to the pickup so I had to improvise. I used my drag rope and shooting sticks (one more reason to love shooting sticks) to hang him up. I've skinned them on the ground before but it's much easier for me if they're hanging. When I'm closer to the truck I use the handy hanger-upper my boss made for me. What a guy! I've found that skinning them in the field while they're warm is much easier than getting home at night with a frozen load of coyotes to deal with. Plus I can leave the mess (and smell) in the field. I once skinned a gut-shot coyote in my garage and the smell about killed me. The wife was less than impressed too. Any pro skinners out there with useful advice to share??
