Skinning a Deer with a Golf Ball and a Pickup Truck

Yes, another way to skin a deer: a golf ball, a pickup truck, and some rope.

Hunters take pride in gutting, skinning, and butchering our own deer, and like most hunters we have our tried and true methods of getting the job done. That’s not to say that hunters are not always on the look out for improvements and new methods, but was very shocked at the efficiency of this particular technique.

It doesn’t take much; just a golf ball, a thick rope, a sturdy pillar and a good ol’ truck with a hitch.


The video starts with a quick tutorial using a ball, a towel (signifying the deer skin), and a rope, just to get down the basics of the skinning. Next you’ll see the real deal in action.

Not too shabby right? The key appears to be not gunning it once you get in the car, and making sure that you have that sturdy area to attach the other end of the deer to.
