Since 2003


Designed by long time squirrel and coon hunter Bayne Koonts the Koonts Skinner (Patent Pending)

The Koonts skinner is a skinning aid that firmly holds a squirrel to assist in using the "tail cut" method to skin squirrels. It's portable, simple to use and allows you to quickly skin while securely holding the squirrel at a height you choose as most comfortable. Using the Yadkin River Skinner will give you a clean squirrel free of the dirt and hair that is normally associated with standing on the tail to perform the skinning. Simple, clean, fast and no more bending over! My name is Ron and me and my good friend Vance have taken over ownership and manufacturing of the Koonts Skinner. Since we have acquired the right we have made some improvements to the original skinner with the gambrel allowing you to clean rabbit and other small game as well. We are working on some attachments that will be available in the future for racoon, coyote and larger game skinning. This will be the last and only skinner you will ever need!
