Well, I skinned my first squirrel! My first anything, actually. I usually get unscraped hides from my neighbors, just for the fun of tanning them. I snared the squirrel, but the snare did not break it's neck like it was supposed to, so I went and shot it. Oh well. It was a red squirrel, so it's hide is the size of a postage stamp, but I wanted to skin something and not be afraid of ruining the carcass. Just to let you know. I'm pretty proud of myself!
