Have you guys seen this thing.

airskinner.com

I am going to sharpen a basketball needle and try it on my next one. I am really curious to see if this helps any.

I have seen the website, and i'm not 100% sold!! If you give it an attempt let us know how it went. Im sure the first one will go slow for you, but hopefully you are able to try it on more than one coyote that day :D

Looks like a whole bunch of BS to me...first of all, wouldn't all the air seep out through the HOLE put in the skin from the harvesting of the animal? Also, on that website, they don't show how hard or easy the animal was to skin after going through this process. Let us know how it goes though if you try it! Shoot, for all I know, this could be the miracle product for this century. Just my $0.02 I guess.

Been there done that on multiple animals after watching the guy on the ELK video do it. I tried it on multiple animals while working for a taxidermy studio. It doesn't help skin any easier AT ALL! All id does is blow the coyote up real good and then when the air leaks back out into your skinning shed it leaves a nice aroma! :shock:

The worst smell are green coyotes! Damn, a guy forgets that smell over the summer, but it hits you hard every season.

the air hose skinning does help you at all. I have tried it a few times and the big hole from the bullet is a obvious problem. skin then hot, doesn't get any easier than that.

i've never peeled one hot so if your out in the field i would think some of those disposable trap stakes/wedges that the fur shed sells would be a big help if there were no trees or fenceposts to tie onto. wrap a snare cable around each back foot. stick them wedges in the ground 12 inches apart and there you have a handy pulling platform. don't know if this has been done but seems it would work in a pinch

Only problem is frozen ground. the best way is too make yourself a quick connect pole for a bumber or box on the pickup that you can throw up. I have one that i didn't put a lot of time into and certainly wasn't perfected but it works.

Chris you have kind of a cadailac skinner built for the pickup don't you?

BNB in your country dealing with fox they take about minute and a half to skin hot i would definetly put something together for you pickup.

Once you peel hot you'll never go back.

I believe it's posted somewhere on here already isn't it? You might be able to cut and paste or just bring it back to the top.
