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 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.

BE darn sure you wear rubber gloves when skinning hogs, a guy here almost died from an infection that he got from hog blood.

Dave McCroskey Knives

makes the most unbelievable knives you will put your hands on. I skinned and butchered 8 deer with one of his knives and it was still sharp!!!

Best money you will ever spend!

A friend skinned 300 beaver with one of his knives before it needed sharpening!

Dave's knives are a taxidermist's dream, also!

that is the kind of mother-in-law a guy could dream about getting.

reminds me of those ads that talk about a guy looking for a wife that has her own boat, send pics of the boat.

These are a great low cost option for skinning. The blades are super easy to exchange and you can actually re-sharpen them most of the time...

We have always hung them from back legs/head down. Do the butt-out trick,cut along hind quarters to the hoof , Now cut from butt-hole all the way down to the jawbone. Skin same as you would a deer .Now zip down to ribs ,let gravity be your friend guts fall in a 50 gallon plastic garbage can. Clean up and rinse with garden hose. Quarter and hang in cooler for 3-4 days . Brings back some very fond memories as a full time guide at a hunt club . Good thread , thanks .
