I didn't read all the posts so if I am repeating sorry. I take and make a cut around each paw at the base then make a cut around the neck. Tree, hammer, large nail through skull sounds worse then it is. Then just start your small cuts to seperate the skin at the base of the neck get some pliers and PULL. When you get to the base of the tail cut tail bone. With it now turned inside out take it and put a stretcher on the inside. Salt the fleshy side as this should be on the outside.
When I was young I would take the hide's and sell them to local muskie and fly fisherman to trade for new lure's. Big fun too!

Don't use a knife to skin 'em. Use tin snips or kitchen scissors. Off with the feet and cut off the hide like you're skinning a chicken.
