    for skinning the deer we do it head up. start by cutting around the skull in front of the ears all the way around. then cut around all 4 legs at the half way point between the knee and hoof. then skin back the hide on the skull enough to get a good lump of hide and the ears ( this is our version of the tennis ball).about 3 to 4 inches is usually enough. then we wrap a log chain around the ear/skull lump of hide, hook the other end to any vehicle and drive like its stolen ( just kidding ) pull slowly and it peels down like the prom queens pantys on homecoming night. :D

    good luck on your up coming hunt.

    btw have you started scouting areas yet? I am sure all of us have tips on what to look for and where to look and go to.

    go over to the Firearmsenthusiast and click on The Hunters Lounge. In the archives there is an old boy who has killed and dressed over 600 big game animals and helped dress out that many more. It is explained in detail and I seem to recall some pictures of him dressing a couple of elk on a snowy hillside.
