Be very CAREFUL with that mini-flesher. Caribou hide is very thin compared to other animals that size and will cut through easily. If you have a round knife, it would be better and if you don't I don't know if you even need to shave the hide. The bottom lip pad needs to be extra thin and make sure you are careful around those hairy nostrils. Otherwise, a piece of cake if you're comfortable with deer.
