    Naw, gut shot isn't any problem.  Just clean him and wash him off good.  Soak him over night in a little salt water and some ginger powder.  Then freeze until you are ready to cook.

    Real talk ? That's it no vinegar needed I hate the taste of meat soaked in vinegar thought you had to soak them in vinegar after a gut shot that's why I feed the gut shots to my dog or little wild cat . You got any good recipes to go with that advice that don't contain  vinegar soaking

    Nope No special recipes here lol just plain normal Blanch them and make squirrel dumplings exactly like chicken dumplings , or a chowder style soup that is cheesy and crackers, or my favorite is like a gumbo or here we call it goulash with tomato base and veggies like okra , corn , onions, Tomato's , squirrel meat , plain white salted crackers sweet tea and a half a peanut butter sandwich haha. I am getting hungry now lol.  The only thing that I do that some people find odd is I sometimes soak a wild meat in cheap coca-cola from the dollar store or somewhere. This is what I use instead of ewww vinegar haha I put that on my greens and spinach but that it.👍

    My problem is skinning them cold and stiff.  It takes a lot of force to pull the skin off and that makes it difficult to hold the tail with my boot….keeps slipping out from under.

    I like this video which totally eliminates the gutting operation.  You do lose a little meat but I've usually got 2 or 3 fox squirrels at 2 and a half pounds a piece so there isn't a shortage.

    Vinegar dry’s the meat out, don’t bother with it. The end was pretty funny when he showed his teeth. 😂😂😂. Try and order exacto blades, they are Razor sharp and will make cutting thru that fur super easy. Good video buddy. 👍👍.

    Back when I was commercial  hunting/calling for coyotes on Oregon’s SE desert country, times when I really got into them, my knife would dull, after skinning. My Partner from my misspent life of chasing tail lights,  gave me a great tip.

    Roll your vehicle widow   about 2/3  down, then use top ground edge  of the window as a crock stick sharpener.  It will put a razor edge if you don’t  let your biade get too dull.  I used to sharpen my knives between coyotes. I walked  from my truck to call, usually covering 50 miles a day calling, so I always had that 67 Ford 4×4 crock stick handy.

    For you folks that missed what 60 coyotes and 5 bobcats at once look like.
