Skinning for Tanners & Game Processors: Page 4


Cutting the Front Legs Open.

In photo #11 we see the hide as it came off the deer.

We need to turn the front legs right side out now (photo #12)....















....and then open them up by sliding our knife up the front of the inside of the leg. (photos #13 and #14).
















The line Iíve drawn in the picture shows where the cut will go across to meet the chest incision. Try to match the cut on the other leg to make the hide symmetrical. Now is the time to split the tail and trim off any little bits that may be sticking out more than you want.
