Hide puller/design

Does anyone have a design or could you post picks of your hide puller? I think Iím going to build one this summer and I did not think it was necessary to reinvent the wheel.


Thanks,

Snapper

This is a two part design the other piece is just a mirror image.
If it tightens up on you from continued use just add 16oz of Busch.

My friend built one with a electric winch. I will get you a few pics next time I am down there. It works pretty slick.

The fun is over once you pull the trigger

Re: Hide puller/design

I use a hand winch set-up the type you see on boat trailers. I can't show a detailed pic right now since everything is dis-assembled for the summer but I do have the pic below.



You can see the hand winch on the right, the cable goes up to a pulley in the rafters then goes across to another pulley then is connected to my skinning gambrel. Most skinning is just done by hand but some of those tough to skin coon and coyote, I have two vice grips mounted on the floor to help pull the hide.


The horizon is your starting point.

Sorry the pic is sideways, but the winch is mounted above on a pipe cross member. I sit on a chair to skin with it.
