That went pretty good , one question though , was I supose to make the hind leg cut before , or after I got skinned to the base of tail?

Make the hind leg cuts before you start the head. Just cut from the heel of the foot to about the knee. Just a inch or two. Complete those cuts after you have pulled the tail. Cut on the skin side and you can make a good straight line cut from one side to the other.

start all 4 legs before you start skinning.


When there is shot in the air, there is hope.
When in doubt, throttle out!

I skined both , and never made the hind leg cuts till I had the pelt off the carcas , this through the mouth is still a pretty good way , thanks for all the posting and picture in put guys.
Now I'm looking at my fisher wondering if this might work for them too?

if you can get the head over the shoulders/ and belly it will work.
