How To Skin And Preserve A Squirrels Hide
Now it may seem silly to take time to preserve small game hides, but if SHTF, you will need all the resources you can get your hands on, squirrels will be abundant for a while (until we hunt them all for food) So collect all the hides. Do not waste valuable hides just because they are small.
The hides can be used to store things in and even make shoes, if you had enough you could even make a blanket. You have to think outside the box in survivalism and this is a great way to learn how to hide an animal and you could even take what you learn skinning small game to bigger game when the time comes.
