How to Skin a Squirrel

To skin a squirrel, first, remove the fur from the tail. You should have a flap of skin that is two to three inches wide at the base of the tail. Continue to skin the back, two and a half to three inches from the first vertical cut. Then pinch the skin to lift it up at the breastbone. Once the flap is loose, remove the skin from the back of the squirrel.

Travis Dufour’s Squirrel Hunting 101 workshop

For years, Louisiana hunters have used squirrels as their gateway prey because they are easily accessible and abundant. Squirrel meat is flavorful, but the meat has fallen out of favor due to the taste, density and gameyness. Now, thanks to the Squirrel Hunting 101 workshop, hunters can enjoy this tasty delicacy in a more environmentally friendly way.

A seminar for novices will be held at the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Waddill Wildlife Refuge on Sept. 19. Participants are asked to wear face masks and follow social distancing protocols, since there’s a COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the state. The seminar will teach participants how to properly hunt squirrels, and will also discuss the appropriate equipment and techniques.

Travis Dufour’s favorite squirrel recipes

Squirrels are one of Louisiana’s gateway prey, easy to hunt and delicious. The meat is dense, delicate, and not gamey or overly spicy. Because of the scarcity of squirrels in Louisiana, the use of squirrel meat has declined. But Dufour hopes to change that. He has compiled a list of his favorite recipes for squirrel. And he plans to share them with you!

For the recipes, Dufour uses his pickup’s tailgate as a butcher block. He thaws out the carcasses from the spring squirrel season and wears purple latex gloves. To prepare the meat, he asks biologist Kacie Rome to hold onto the squirrel’s hind legs. Dufour slices the squirrel with the tip of the pocketknife and sets it back on the tailgate. Rome holds on to the squirrel’s haunches as he peels the skin over its head.

Travis Dufour’s technique for skinning a squirrel

Travis Dufour’s technique for skinned squirrels is remarkably simple. He uses the tailgate of his pickup as a butcher block. He thaws squirrel carcasses frozen during the spring squirrel season, and then puts on purple latex gloves. He then grabs a pocketknife and asks biologist Kacie Rome to hold the squirrel by its hind legs. Dufour slices the squirrel’s head off with the tip of his pocketknife, then sets the blade back on the tailgate and peels away the skin slowly, as Rome watches.

Dufour says he learned the art of skinning a squirrel by accident, but now he prefers a method that involves two people. A better way to skin a squirrel is by cutting below the tail. If you’re not sure how to skin a squirrel, here are a few tips:
