    Skinning tails was one of the things I had difficulty with when I first started trapping. I don't have raccoons up here, but martin have very thin hide that is easy to tear. A lot of my early mink wound with short tails too.

    Good for you getting your kids involved! My daughters are always eager to dig in, and last deer we processed I actually gave the oldest a knife to cut burger meat off the bone. She did great! Getting young kids interested in the process and making it fun is critical to raising the next generation of outdoorsman.
    There ain't too many problems you can't fix with $500 or a 30-06.

    Him-"Whats the best knife for survival?"
    Me-"the one that's in your pocket."
    Him-"I don't have one in my pocket."
    Me-"Exactly."
