Using compressed air to skin a coyote

Coyotes require time, and patience when it comes to skinning them. The air skin method almost takes all the work out of it.

The coyote is not actually skinned, but the hide is separated with ease from the tissue.

    Can you do it with rabbits as well?

      I don’t know why you would want to, rabbits pretty much just slide out of their skin, but I imagine it would. I’ve seen videos of deer being done this way too.

    Decades ago a local trapper used to come by my dad’s service station/general store to use that technique on beavers. It worked … looked weird, but it worked.

    Years ago I raised sheep and sold direct to the African Muslim students at the University. They would come out and pick out 4 or 5. Their top pick was uncut males, then castrated males. They wouldn’t eat females. They field dressed them on the spot. Cut the throat, catch the blood, then they would cut a slit in the hide of the back leg and blow into it, loosening the hide, then peal the hide off easy. They would wrap em in plastic, put them in the trunk and leave.
