How To Field Dress a Squirrel – an article by Creek Stewart on

Today, published an article I wrote titled How To Field Dress a Squirrel.  In this article, I walk readers through a step-by-step way to field dress a squirrel.  If you are interested in knowing how to do this or would just like to see how I like to do it you can read the article by clicking on the link below:

Here is also a link to a related article I wrote titled 2 Tricks to Spit-Roasting Small Game Over an Open Fire that you may find interesting.

This squirrel had a beautiful thick hide.  I took it to a local taxidermist to be tanned so that I can use it as well.  As soon as he gets it back to me I will post some photos of it here for you to see.  As you will see in the instructional photos I skinned the squirrel in what is called a TUBE and the hide is almost fully intact.  I can readily use it to make a pouch or container.  I haven’t yet decided exactly how I will use it but it will not go to waste.
