Coyote. Buddy shot a big one and I want to tan the dog. Finished skinning now the hard part. Scraping. Then tanning, hope it doesn’t slip. I also have a big mink I hit with my truck.

Wash that pelt in dawn dishwashing soap to remove stink, blood, and vermin before doing anything else!

I have not skinned a yote in years and boy I don't miss it!

I do know they are ten times easier to skin hot than after they cool off and stiffen up.

Thats for sure. I’ve skinned most furbearers from fox on down and this yote was not easy. I made a few boo-boos but I figure needle and thread will hopefully fix. The mink should be a lot easier, usually hardly any fat. Got a few ‘rats on the pond and I can case skin a rat in a couple minutes.

100% wash it with dawn. It cleans and kills any fleas they may have. Let the dawn sit on them for a while. Also, after you rince it down, use a good conditioner to soften the hair. Run a brush through it to get any tangles out and to make sure it all gets a good conditioning.

I know an old fella that used a sharpened basketball needle and his air compressor to skin coyotes. YMMV

I will have to try that sometime. I use the garden hose/water method on snapping turtles and it blows them right up.

I've always heard about doing that will coyotes and beaver, but never tried it. It sounds fanciful to me, but it might be the best kept secret that there is!

Kind of like skinning a deer with a vehicle, take a length of rope tie a monkey knot into the neck hide of a hanging deer and the other end to the bumper then drive off a short distance....LOL
