Video: Skinning and Gutting a Deer in Under 2 Minutes

October 30, 2013
Video: Skinning and Gutting a Deer in Under 2 Minutes - 11

How fast can you gut and skin a deer? I bet it's not faster than this guy. This video from Peach Orchard Deer Processing in Dalzell, South Carolina shows a processor named David skinning and gutting a doe in about 1 minute and 50 seconds.

I had to watch the video a few times to see where he's actually making his cuts, because he was moving so quickly.

Editor's Note: If you try to break David's time for skinning and gutting a deer, Outdoor Life will not be held responsible for any lost fingers.

It looked as if the hind quarters were already slit before the video shows him going there, watch it again and look.
Regardless, he is very fast. I wouldn't appreciates knifing my choice quarters like he does three times in the video.
I'm surprised no one else stated anything about that.

Skin is never that loose on a fresh kill deer . . . . definitely they used an air compressor prior to hoisting the un-field dressed deer up on the spreader. Not a bad technique if you have a pole barn and equipment near by to use. A bit of liberal video trickery for the Trick or Treat crowd.

Skill + sharp knife + warm deer = speed!

Take your time gutting, skinning, cutting. Think about your hunt and enjoy the time outdoors. Everything else is hurry. This is a chance to slow down.

If you had intentions of using the hide whatever time you saved in the skining would be taken up in cleaning the hide...he left a lot of meat on it...i used to work in a knackery and have skinned many different animals.

With that kinda skill working a dead body, you would have made some scene in 'Goodfellas' really interesting! That's pretty talented, good for you. Also, kudos on that knife for doing that kinda work you put it through

I would bet he used a air compressor to loosen up the skin before skinning. Yea he was fast but I know a lot of folks myself included that could skin a deer and quarter one in about 5 min if the skin was not half frozen. With out the use of a air compressor. Of course the deer was gutted out in the woods. Furthermore how many many people drag their deer out of the woods with the guts still in them. This video was more entertainment than practical.
