Introduction: How to Trap and Skin a Squirrel
1.flexible strong wire
2.a stick about 2" in diameter and 12ft long
3.a very sharp knife
next you need to wrap the wire around the pole and form a noose about 2 inches wide
next find an area with alot if squirrels find a tree with a squirrel nest lean the pole at the tree at a 45 degree angle as the squirrel ckimbs the pole into the tree it feels the noose around its neck and jumps off and essentially hangs itself squirrels will take the easiest way to its nest so it takes the less step pole
set a few traps and check each day at the evening and it looks like we caught one
once you get back home get a very sharp knife and a hard surface to cut on and a pair if old clithes
put the squirrel on a stump or table and cut right above its anus
next start to pull back on the skin until it pulls back a few inches
next put the squirrel on the ground and step on its tail and start pulling the fresher the kill the easier this should be
keep pulling until you reach the front legs once you reach them put you fingers behind them and just cut the fur through the armpit
Step 9: Ta Da
keep pulling until you reach the head and just cut off the head now you have a fur you can preserve and some meat to cook. uou dont need to gut it because usually i just cut the legs meat of the front and back since the rest is so small
We have a be nice policy.
