great way to skin a deer

Where did the video go? I learned a neat trick this past year from the camp next to us. They used a golf ball attached to the hide of the neck and pulled it off with a truck

I've heard of that trick and I'm sure it would work.  What I've always tried to do is to skin them as quick as possible and while they are freshly killed the hide pulls off really easy even just by body weight.

I watched some hunters try

I watched some hunters try the rock in the hide with a truck trick and ended up dragging the deer through the dirt when the rope that was holding the head snaped.  It doesn't take that much time to hand him up and go at it with a knife if you know how.

I thought it was a neat trick when I watched them do it. However by the time they anchored the head to, skinned out the shoulders, tied the hide to the truck etc I think you would have most if not all the skinning done by handing a deer up and doing it the ol fashioned way

I agree fire, if you know

I agree fire, if you know what your doing you should be able to skin a deer by the time it takes to gather all the gear to pull it off with a truck. It never made much sense to me. You can keep the meat a lot cleaner by hanging him first and jsut use some muscles and a good sharp knife. Man, I hope I skin one thos year.
