I'm always looking for ways to work smarter, not harder. As a hunter education instructor I also watch for products that make things safer. The Air Skinner is a smarter and safer way to skin deer!. Let the Air Skinner do it's job and it reduces the amount of pulling and cutting you would normally need to do to free the hide from the carcase. Don't forget to follow the safety instructions!

I work for an outdoors website, and had the pleasure of using your air skinner last season. It is cool up here in the north so we usually hang all our deer and skin them after the final day of the hunt. Eleven deer hung for 3.5 days and were skinned easier than a fresh kill with this air skinner. Never done it an easier way.  I would like to have one of these for my own.

I am the owner and operator of Turtle Farm Taxidermy. I met George at the NTA Convention in Sioux Falls SD in the summer of 2005. I watched the video of the Air Skinner and still was a little skeptical on how it was going to work, so I purchased the starter kit. Well I'm here to tell you after using it I made call to George and asked for the upgrade. It cut my caping a deer or antelope time almost in half and in my business time can be money. I have told other hunters about the Air Skinner and like me they want to see how it works. I told them to come by my shop this hunting season and I will show them how it works. I have also tried it on water fowl (a GW Teal) and it worked great. Thanks George!

 

Steve Fetzner, Taxidermist

The "Air Skinner" works great for taxidermists. I've been in the taxidermy business for thirty-six years and am always looking for ideas and products that can help me do my job better and faster. The air skinner does both. Inject the ears on a deer, etc. and cut your time down on reversing and removing cartilage. Partially frozen, freezer burned, or dried out heads will skin much easier and with less chance of miss-cutting if you inject them first with the air skinner. it works great on any mammal. the air skinner is also of very high quality construction, made to last a lifetime. Save time by using the air skinner, and as we all know, time is money.

Hi George, You may recall that my wife stopped by your trade show booth a few years ago and saw the Air Skinner. She thought it was a great idea and called me on my cell phone (I was at a conference). I was a little skeptical at first, but she said she saw a video showing the Air Skinner being used on a frozen deer and it was apparently pretty compelling. I told her to go ahead and purchase it, but then didn't get the opportunity to use it that year.

In the past my hunting buddy and I pulled the hide off our deer the old fashioned way - cut, pull, cut, pull, cut, pull, stab yourself with the knife, swear, cut pull... I always thought there had to be a better way, so I was looking forward to trying your Air Skinner. Well, I just tried it a few days ago and I can't believe how easy it made the skinning process. After using the Air Skinner on a young doe, the hide pretty much slid right off with only a couple of knife strokes and some easy pulling, and no one else helping.

Like I said, I just can't believe it. I don't write many testimonial letters, but in this case I just had to tell you how impressed I am with your kit. I've only used the Air Skinner on deer, but I highly recommend it to anyone.

I used the AirSkinner on chickens - I can now skin 10 chickens in the time it used to take to do just 3!

I own a Taxidermy business and just finished using the air skinner on a wild hog. It worked great! Cut skinning time down from 45 minutes to 5 minutes!

After seeing [a forum post], I was really curious of this device. So, I ordered one and recieved it 2 days ago. A older gentleman I know called me lastnight to assist him in tracking a buck he shot. He has poor eye sight in the dark and is color blind so seeing drops of blood can be tough for him. Long story short, after tracking the blood trail I found him, laying for about 5 hrs he was really stiff.

Excited to try the new toy........

The Air Skinner was awesome to see in action, blew this deer up like the Michelin Man. Craziest thing I ever saw. This tool definitely helped with removing the hide of this animal. Used a older air compressor and it only got up to about 90lbs of pressure. It had no problem.

Now I need to try it on a Predator and see how it works on smaller animals. Should have the same results as a deer.

If you were thinking about this device, at this point I highly recommend it.

I purchased my Air Skinner  three or four years ago and I would not give it up for anything! Saves me a ton of extra work when skinning out a deer. I love mine.

This Would Save 30-40 Hours...

Mike from Mike's Star Market in Eau Claire, WI, talks about the Air Skinner after using it for the first time to skin four deer.

I gotta tell you I had my doubts about this thing; JUST tried it on a "possum", & after I laughed so hard because I made her look like a beach ball, I made my fur cuts (cased) & the fur just rolled like a turtle neck sweater to her front legs, unfriggin believeable!   Will be trying it on coon next. THANKS AGAIN

 

Air Skinner on Ducks

I know the air skinner has taken about 10 minutes off of skinning ducks. We skin the head out; I insert the needle behind the eye and blow-up the head. I know I knock off at least 5 minutes just skinning the head in this step.  The wings are also blown-up and are much easier to skin using the air skinner.  Thanks, Dennis.

Hey George, Just wanted to let you know my friend and I used the Air Skinner on a predator that had been in a freezer for OVER TWO YEARS! After a partial thaw it worked like a champ. We got a great pelt and I am buying a kit for my son. Thanks!

I received the original Airskinner from a friend for my birthday a few weeks ago. He and I went deer hunting and we were able to try it on a doe that we had taken just two hours prior - and it worked great! I wasn't sure it would, since there was very little time for the field dressing edges to harden.  Plus, we didn't actually skin the deer for another hour after that - yet the hide remained puffy from the air and pretty much pulled right off, with only occassional use of the knife.  I am very impressed and definitely recommend the Airskinner kit to anyone looking to speed up a skinning job.
