A tubby suburban dad watching hunting and adventure shows
on TV and wondering could I do that?
This is the chronicle of my adventures as I learn to learn to Forage,
Hunt and Fish for food that has lived as I would wish to myself -
Wild and Free.
i can gut a chickenbut perhaps would be a bit girly about a rabbithow soft am I?
Excellent! When my dad taught me to skin squirrels, he explained it as "taking off their pajamas." Hey, it works!
JohnNo Rabbit and Carrot pie for you then LOLSBW
PhillipOut of interest do you skin your Squerlys under a running tap? I've heard it help stop fur sticking to the meat. SBW
SBW, I try to keep them as dry as possible when skinning. If that hair gets wet, it sticks to everything, and it's a real pain to get off of the meat. I suppose if you really soak the critter down before you start skinning, that might work, but I haven't tried.The best method I've found though requires only one small cut... straight across the back, then insert your fingers into the cut and pull both directions (towards head and towards tail). Comes right off. Nip the feet, and you're ready to gut and quarter.
