    After seeing this video, I'll never go back to my old way of skinning squirrels.



    Funny sidebar thought from a viewer:

    I am convinced that Mr. Murphy has absorbed the soul of every squirrel he's killed

    (Ha ha... the hair, the intense eyes... now I can't stop laughing.)

    Before the final snips I wanted to Kentucky fry the squirrel whole.

    Cleaning animals is something I have not done, except for fish and some chickens here and there, since I left home. I imagine that it is something that many people would have a hard time doing, because of the yuck factor. I know that is true of gutting a chicken.

    Hunger is the best sauce that will cover all kinds of ick factors!

    When I took a food storage class decades ago, a woman was telling about an event she and her family had when she was a child. They were in Utah, and something happened which I no longer remember, hindering their ability to have a noon meal. I believe they were out in canoes or something, so out in nature. Her brother, who was a very picky eater, always, began to talk about how they could eat the lizards they had been seeing. She said she doubted that he could eat one, even though he was talking about it. Even though he may have been hungry at the moment, he hadn't really gone very long without food. I have often thought about all the really picky eaters I have known and how they would really do in a situation where they could not avoid certain foods if they were really hungry.

    I have skinned countless squirrels and have used several different methods. This method looks fairly easy.
    Also the perpendicular cut across the back method where you then insert a finger from each hand and pull apart works well also.
    As always, thanks Grizzleyette!

    Mmm Mmm A fried young squirrel with potatoes and white gravy. We used to eat groundhogs too, just a super sized squirrel.

    They don't deal with critters because of yuk factor but will touch slimy okra?!? I'm agreeing with you but also think people are just weird.

    With all due respect, I thought everyone knew at least two ways to skin the bushy tail rat.
    I always started in the middle or at the head, now I know three ways.
    I prefer rabbits, bigger, easier to trap or raise & taste better.
