How to skin a deer?

Submitted by Reed on 08/02/2002. ( reed@usacops.com ) 12.72.138.78

Hi, I am new to deer hunting and my questions is, can anyone give me a detailed run-down of how to clean a deer. I have never been much of a hunter, but my son is wanting to hunt and I want to be able to support and help him. If it helps, his tag is for a mule doe. Thanks in advance.

You best bet is to go to walmart and pick up a book on deer hunting.

Skinning is really not that difficult once you get the hang of it. Hand the deer upside down by attaching a stirdy stick (such as a broom handle)through a slit between the tendon and the bone on the bottom portion of its hind legs. Cut the skin just below the joint on the hind legs and cut down to the crotch. Then up the middle of the gut to the stirnum and out to the joint on its front legs. Peel the skin off by yanking with your hands....it should not tear on you. Just be careful when you skore it that you just cut through the skin, not into the meat. I recommend braintan.com as the give good illustrations. Feel free to e-mail me if ya have any questions!

What's best for shooting a deer(male)? A 12Gauge shotgun or a 30-06 Rifle?

A 30-06 is better simply because you can take a longer shot and a better shot for the kill you can use a 12 Gauge with slugs but it cuts down your shot distance
