    that seems kind of lazy but still a good idea in general probably a lot easy to get the skin off with out damaging it.

    Well who would have thunk! That looks like it would definitely make the skinning process a lot easier. Have to remember that little trick the next time.

    That is fantastic!

    I guess if I wouldn't shoot such big holes in deer and pigs I could do that!:D
    Seems like the holes would cause a significant air leak!!!!!

    Actually, the drying of the skin and flesh create a bond around any holes you create when killing or gutting the animal. My wife and I have an air skinner, and we now use it every time we process anything larger than a rabbit. Less wasted meat on the hide afterward. Another plus: think of the body mass you can add to your "trophy" in your pictures!:D

    Thanks for the catfish thought ORANGELLO, I'll have to try itthat in the summer!:rolleyes:
