    Skin them just like a coyote or bobcat. When you go to flesh the fat off, throw it in a garbage bag and put in the freezer for a couple of hours. Fat come off better and coons are terribly fat and greasy.

    ok here is a great tip....

    go to a local fur buyer and ask him or her if you can watch them skin the animals....

    helped me out more than anything verbal

    good luck
