In this Video, I Use, and Recommend the Outdoor Edge Kodi-Pak KP-1 Caper Gut-Hook Skinner Saw Combo with Leather Belt Sheath. It's a Quality, Useful, Easy-to-Carry Set that will last me for many years. It's a bit Pricey, but, I Considered it a good Investment. Holds an Edge well too.
If you can't Afford the Kodi-Pak, I Researched and Found the Following. It is very Similar to the Kodi-Pak, but, less Expensive:

Strong Rope for Dragging or Hanging. It needs to be at Least a Couple Hundred Pound Strength. Click here for Rope to Choose From
If you use a Gambrel, make sure it is Sturdy Enough to Safely Hold the Weight of the Animal, plus, more. When the Animal is Hanging from the Gambrel, you'll be Pulling, Skinning and Butchering, and therefore putting more Demand on the Gambrel Strength.

Below is a List of the Supplies I Used in Making the COYOTE RUG Series.
When you Purchase through these Links, I make a Small Percentage of the Price. The Prices are the same as if you Purchased them Elsewhere. But, by using my Links, you are Helping me recoup my costs of Making these Videos FREE to you. Thank You.
SKINNING AND FLESHING:
Choose your own Size of Latex Free Gloves. If you are not Allergic to Latex, choose your Size of Regular Plastic Gloves
A Gambrel with or without a Pulley System:
Don't Purchase a Plastic Tail Stripper. They don't hold up with the Bigger Animals.
For Salt, go to your local Farm Store and Purchase "feed" or "stock" salt. It's much Cheaper than using Table Salt from a Grocery Store.
