He and Scott Painter were always a joy to visit with at the conventions. I miss him as well. Good trapper and lure maker.

I'll never forget the time at the Bland convention when he tasted my Skunky Backbreaker. I would never in a hundred years think someone would do that. He also tasted my cat essence. He said he had a really hard time getting that taste out of his mouth.
He was one of a kind, for sure, and I too miss him.

He pestered me to no end to try his beaver lure on these lack luster summer beaver down here that won't come to anything. I hauled it around for weeks then remembered it at a spot that had zero sets to be had and rest is history, stuff worked better than any lure id ever tried on summer beaver, few years later he up and left this world and far as i know took the recipe with him.

Met up with him and Newt on their way to Tx. to film Newt's hog snaring video as they came through town, then again on their way back home. Lot's of laughs and he's dearly missed by all who ever met him.

He was the real deal. Talked with him at length at one of the Lima, Ohio NTAs.

I bought some of his liquid beaver lure (in an 8oz squirt bottle)....that stuff worked great. Wish I had a case of it.

RIP..PSkinny!!

A lot of Tman members have passed away over the years. Pskinny probably hit me the hardest. And Belin. I think about them both often.

Still have 2 jars of Pskinny's beaver lures. The one J is talking about, and another called Headache.

P Skinny died way to young. It was kind of shocking.

I have memories of him telling me his mice trapping secret formula saying, “peanut butter and cheese are for old women and girl scouts”.

Belin on the other hand slippin around the NCTA convention on Friday night with a big jug and some little dixie cups grinning sayin, “want some apple pie?”.

We have lost too many good ones that can never be replaced, PASS IT ON!

We are the only one’s that can do it!

That guy looks no older than my buddy who just passed. We used to do all night catfishing trips and talk on the phone regularly every couple weeks. I miss talking more than catfishing.

Anyone remember P-Skinny doing the mouse skinning tutorial complete with pictures of skinning, fleshing and boarding a mouse. Lord that man didn’t have good sense.

I still have a bunch of his baits and lures and even one of his t-shirts.
I wear the shirt to conventions every now and then but nobody notices, his baits and lures are all sitting on a shelf
Because they were his.
