    Skinning a pig is a pain in the ***. It is better to dunk a pig in boiling water and scrape the hair off.

    Mutton is kinda strong. We always butchered our sheep and goats when they were 6-9 months old. Makes for much better tasting meat. We raised black faced sheep (suffolk). They seem to have more meat on them and were better tasting.
    1. If it's in your kit and you don't know how to use it....It's useless.
    2. If you can't reach your kit when you need it....Its useless.

    I've never skinned a domestic goat, but a mountain goat has a really, really thick goat and is much more of a chore than skinning a deer. They seem to dull knives faster than about anything I have ever caped out. They make beautiful mounts though if there in good condition. Bighorn sheep are very similar to skinning out as deer their hides aren't as thick as a mountain goat. Bighorn sheep are incredible table fair very tasty meat- perhaps my favorite game animal to eat.
    I have never skinned a pig, but I imagine that they look like a human once you get their hide off. I have skinned alot of black bears, and they look like a fat naked guy once you get the hide off. eeirly similar to humans in fact. For a couple of years I collected fresh road kill and fed it to my sled dogs so I have pretty much skinned about everything around here.

    i agree with you there. I have only boiled hogs one time and we did twelve that day each one between 250 and 350 lbs
    couldn't eat ham for a month and then had to close my eyes to eat bacon.....

    the few i have skinned were in the 100lb range
