Attach your gambrel to a winch. Hang the coon on there, like you normally would when skinning. Take the tail, and rear end of the coon, and roll it up tight. Pull up on the winch, until you get to the arms, put in a wooden dowel or piece of rebar to pull out the arms, them skin them out like normal.

Saves the wear and tear on your body from pulling coon.

Sorry I don't have better pics. Here is k9's roller rigged skinning system. I modeled mine off of this, and it's almost identical.



Once it's rolled up tight, you need another piece of rebar to hold it tight. Then just leave it alone, and just let the winch do it's part.

Thanks Nick, you have given me some ideas. I kinda like this rolling up system. Seems much easier to build.

Aaaaahhhh where to begin...

Kansasbert - The last 2 pics are of k9's skinning rig. His name on the forum is k9. lol

RR3 - Yes, I skin the tail out, however k9 does not. He uses that red puller.

Joe B - yes, that's a horse collar, although we don't have any horses, never have, never will, I skin in my great uncle's work shop directly across the road from my house, it's his shed. He's 90 years old, so I kinda took it over. \:\)
