Sportsmans Guide offers a new tool for deer hunters - the Air Skinner.

"You'll love this Air Skinner™ system. Just marry it up with an air compressor source. Insert a variety of air needles at strategic locations. Pow! Under pressure, animal hide literally blows apart, without tearing the meat."

I just love the part where the "animal hide literally blows apart" :D

Be the first one at camp to explode your deer!

Here is the link.

You know,I don't know why this wouldn't actually work.Two of my co-workers have had surgery(1 knee & 1 apendix) in the last month.Both of them had the surgery area ballooned w/air.

Might be kinda hard to find a compressor in the woods though.

Seriously speaking, I wonder what all that pressure would do to the deer's gut sack. Would it maybe crush it or cause it to leak if you used too much pressure.

I expect that if you gut shot the animal then it could make a bad situation worse.A proper chest cavity hit though,I'd think it'd be fine.

Damn you scared me. I thought you were going to ask what it's do to the deer's NUT SACK. . .WHEW!

Seriously, I believe you'd hav a real mess if for some reason you got the gut sack inflated.

Something similar to that has been done by skinners on alligator farmers for a pretty long while now. The ones that do it says it helps, but I don't think it helps THAT much. I know it doesn't help much at all on a hornback skin, but that is another story.

I don't think it is really meant to blow the hide apart. I had an instructor at Fairchild AFB who did this with a rabbit during survival school. He cut a small hole in the back leg and blew the rabbit up like a balloon (if nothing else, it was comic relief). The air inflated the rabbit and pulled the skin from the meat, then it was easy to remove the skin. I'm not sure how much pressure the air skinner puts on the animal, but it shouldn't be too bad.

Just above the foot, about where the knee would be. I wouldn't believe it either if I hadn't seen it. I'm just wondering how bored he was to discover that trick.

if im not mistaken if you are to the point of skinning your deer to get to the meat shouldnt you have already feild dressed it too so there should be no gut sack it would be on the ground where you shot the deer

Yeah (uually), unless you are one of those wasteful slackers that only take the quarters and throw the ribs and tenderloins away so that you don't HAVE to gut the thing. (..or are one of those people that think they are hunters that bring the animal WHOLE to the butchers to be processed!) Personally, I gut wild game (except for alligators, of course) within 10 minutes of touching the downed animal unless it is impossible. Only once has it been "impossible," since I was hunting on a lease that didn't allow you to field dress and animal in the field. I doubt if I will hunt there again! They also skinned the animal for you, but they weren't good enough. It was harder to cleanup their mess than to skin the animal myself in the first place.

I ALWAY's field dress my deer, but after a day or two of hanging, I take them to a Mom and Pop butcher shop that turns it into Steaks, roasts, Landjaeger Sausage (Heavily Spiced) and some ground venision. They do a much better job than I could do.

God help the guy who jabs the needle into his own leg and doesn't realize it before he turns on the compressor.... :blowup01:

I remember a radio show interviewing a guy who put a nail into his own head from a nail gun at a construction job. He didn't even realize it until he tried to take his hat off... :roflmao1:
