Start to finish - ready for the pot:  Skinned, gutted, washed, and separated into six pieces!

In my original post:  “How fast are you?  Time yourself next time and post the time.
I have not seen anyone answer this question yet!  Don’t be shy - give it a try.
some of us have to wait till next hunting season.i not try to be fast cause knife i use is very sharp and i aint got nowhere to go anyway.the grays skin out faster cause the skin peels off easy,the fox squirrels are tougher to do.

I know it's an old thread, but anyway . . .  Just under 7 minutes from skinning to freezer. I only timed one, so I'm sure that time would come down some with multiple squirrels (assembly line process). However, I also cut out ribs, remove some of the fascia, and never get in a hurry cleaning.

John, that is a decent time for the first try after a long break.  By all means, keep practicing.   ;)

I'm not too worried about how long it takes...
I just watched several you tubes...
I like cutting the head, feet and tail off then doing the shirt and pants. Cut up each side of the genitals to the rib cage and pull the innards out. Then fry them in two halves. Some white peppered gravy and flaky biscuits.

I don't hunt to eat them but I will eat squirrel on occasion. I come from a hunting family... Squirrel, rabbit, pheasant, turkey..... ect.
I have a pest problem here though so I shoot them to control.
