    Very nice. I've only once skinned out a deer while still warm. Amazingly easy, the skin just about falls off.

    That's the way I skin a deer , but I don't race for time. Don't think I could do it that fast.

    Wow, you think he has done that job once or twice? Nice job. Even DH was impressed.

    That looked like a super sharp knife but it was impressive!

    I'd like to know just where you find deer that the skin just falls off easily? Buy the time I get home with a deer, rigamortize has set in.

    Fresh is the ONLY way to skin a deer. Worse one I ever had was Christmas 1983, coldest on record for that date. Shot one of "Santa's reindeer" when it was -14ºF. Then had to drive just over 50 miles to get home. Had all I could do to un-bend the legs to get her out of the trunk of my '76 Ford LTD. Too heavy for me to lift her up to the hooks in the garage so skinning had to be on the cement. That frozen skin fought every quarter-inch of the way but my fingers never got wet or bloody, any liquid was froze. A month before, I'd skinned out a hanging buck fawn and didn't take much longer than a big old boar coon!

    The problem I have is they are carrying the deer around for a while before they are gutting them. I gut my deer where they fall. Taste better and less weight to carry out. It looked like he was throwing away the flank meat. He is also throwing the hide, heart and liver. Hides are worth money or you can make leather. The heart and liver are good to eat.

    I gutted out a deer for a friend after dark. He said "how do you do that in the dark?" I said "Hell, I've never done one in daylight......" ;)

    He was dang sure fast!

    Any deer I've taken was gutted on the spot. Once in a while the hide was left on to keep the meat clean, but not for long.

    Try skinning furbearers that are old 'n cold. You do it cuz you have to, but you never waste a chance to skin them fresh.

    We cleaned one last week that was dead only 10 minutes before we started and the skin didn't come off like that. That was pretty amazing!

    Anyone ever use an air compressor to loosen the hide prior to skinning?

    I tried the same technique as that guy this year. No way could I come close to that speed though. I came to this conclusion: As long as we have 4-wheelers to get the animal back to camp I won't field dress another deer or bear. I'd rather drag the extra 30-40 pounds for 100 yards to the wheeler.

    One of the problems with field dressing and then dragging is that the cavity always fills up with so much crap - leaves, moss, lichen, hair, and blood that the flank meat, tenderloins, and some of the rear quarters are a huge challenge to clean or even salvage. I couldn't believe how much cleaner everything stayed with the effect of much less meat wasted.

    Count me as a believer.

    I wished they had shown it being skinned after they used the air.I watched the long version and they skinned a doe the old fashion way but not that buck.
