Once thing I would do different is I would not lay the quarters with the hair on it in my ice. I don't want the dirt and whatever else from the hair and feet in my ice chest.

Butchering a hog.

I don't think I would lay the hams meat down on the tailgate after the hog hide had been on it as well.

I prefer to 1/4 while hanging so that the meat touches nothing but ice

Need to get a utility knife with replaceable blades and put in a hooked carpet blade if you want to skin them FAST!

Nice video... it says it all.

I do deer and hogs the same way... but in the woods, on the ground, and only carry out these same pieces in a feed sack.

I even have a youtube video showing this same process on deer. It's the only way to do it... if you don't like dragging...which I don't...but I make exceptions for furry coyotes.

Great video,
I like to skin back the legs before cutting them off just because its easier to do when it's still attached.

i'm going to give this a try, except for putting the dirty hairy things into my cooler (don't want to contaminate my adult beverages and bologna sandwiches) . I have been hanging them and completely skinning them, before quartering. Very hard for these old hands.

My step dad uses a similar method for elk. He hunts in some high rough country where everything he kills has to come out on his back. He swears that this keeps the meat cleaner and nicer. After quartering, he says that if you're careful, you can still get the rest of the meat off without having to remove the organs. I've tried it on an antelope and it worked pretty well.

I'd really like to know what kind of knife he is using to quarter them. Wow that thing is sharp. Great video

I can't saw for 100% but if it isn't this one, it is one just like it. I have several and they get sharp and stay sharp with just a few strokes of a good steel.

I've used the Victorinox paring knives for years, recently switched to the Gerber Vital that takes the same blades as the Havalon, interchangeable.
