Steps to skin a deer

Follow the steps below to skin a deer using a small air compressor for home use.

Step 1: The deer needs to be hung using the back legs or you can also hang the deer using the antlers.

Step 2: Next you need to cut a hole. You will require a knife for cutting a small hole in the thigh of the deer. The hole should be just the appropriate size to allow the air compressor’s nozzle to pass through easily.

Step 4: Now you need to turn on the air compressor and air needs to be forced under the skin of the deer and it should be separate from the meat of the deer. What happens is that when the air goes inside then the deer’s skin then it appears to be as light as a balloon. The air forces through the skin in a way that the skin is pushed off the meat. This way even the meat does not go waste and the skin is separated from the meat in a clean way.

Step 5: You should ensure that you feel along the skin of the deer. It should be loose.

Initially you might need to repeat this process a couple of times, but finally all the skin will be removed from the deer.

Step 6: Now use a knife for cutting the skin along the back legs of the deer. The skin of the deer should become loose due to the use of the air compressor. The skin should be pulled and peeled downwards. Now make use of your knife to cut through any of the spots that appear to be stuck.
