by Keith Sutton   |  August 20th, 2014 1

001[1]Your hunt has ended, and after a fine morning spent stalking in your favorite woodlands, the tails of several squirrels protrude from your game bag.

All you must do to prepare a delicious wild game dinner is get the little nut-shuckers skinned and cut up for cooking. But with no one to assist you, that seems like a daunting task. You’re not quite sure how to begin.

Follow this technique to make squirrel skinning a quick and easy process so you can spend more time enjoying the meal and the flattery of your guests. Go skin a squirrel.
