Ballpeen Hammer

I learn this from a friend two seasons ago...
I use a ballpeen hammer on armpit & front legs while skun'n Coyotes.
This area took me a little time even with a skun'n hoist.
Now with the ballpeen hammer trick, I spend less time in this area.

This is how it's done, easy peasy...

Great tip Hern. Will use that immediately. Thank you!

The difference between dreamers and achievers is action.
One try is worth a thousand guesses.

I keep a hammer at the skinning machine. It really does work, havenít damaged a hide yet ( better chance youíll make a bad cut in that area with a knife than poking a hole with a hammer, in my opinion ).

If you are not using a skun'n machine (which hide has a lot of tension at this point), you must keep tension on hide to preform this trick. Tension is the key to skun'n any critter.

I have a short piece of broom handle, rounded on ends, to poke in arm pits to free hide from legs. I've always use the rounded end to tap/poke hide loose in arm pit area. Nowadays I use a ballpeen hammer.

Any hammer will work for sure and I never damaged a hide with a typical hammer, but now I use only a rubber headed mallet. Works great. Learned this from a friend and it makes a MAJOR difference around the chest/front legs area.

Ballpeen seems the right weight, has two rounded heads and is safer to use (on man or beast) then a claw hammer.
Check out flea markets or yard sales for a Coyote hammer.
