I meant to post this awhile ago.
Start at the top of the leg and cut through the skin. Peel that skin back, and start cutting and peeling next to the skin.
There are other methods to do this. Some say they're easier. I don't find this difficult, and it gives me something to do while I wait for the meat to age.
The skin is now hanging inside the garage door. I'm not tanning it 'properly'. Just scraping, drying and salting. I have no special plans for it. Maybe some repairs to harnesses and such. Mostly just to see if it'll turn out.
