skinnin a deer

9 posts in this topic

there has been a short discussion on this topic but, I thought I'd mention how I skin em. I use a skinnin table I fabricated. I lay the animal on it, cut off the head, do neck and front legs, then about half way down the sides of the rib cage and the rumps. I hit the ligaments at the joints with a knife and "crack" the legs off at the joints. I hang it on a rigid hanging rack, grap the hide from the rump, press down with my other forearm all the way down to the neck and off it comes. Give it a quick wipe with a damp rag and then singe any hairs with a propane torch then into the walk-in cooler. No spinning carcass, very little bending, stooping or twisting. I also built one for the reciever hitch but, I have hooks bolted thru the upper bar, Again, no chasing it around in circles like off a gambrel If you'd be interested I'll send someone some pics of it and have it posted. "bout a 10 minute job.

yep, got it thanks. Looks like a good way to do it. The scissoring tabl is a good idea to raise/lower the deer.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
