You could *try* to use the hammer to the skull method. At least then if there are pieces of skull, they could be repaired without much trouble. Otherwise, you run the risk of an inhumane kill, and it's not worth it just for a nice skull. I did get a nearly intact skull from a 6 month old buckling that was shot just behind the ear. Tiny entry hole, no exit hole.

Use two separate knives-one for skinning, one for internal cuts. Clean both blades frequently. Avoid using the knife to skin (air hose or water hose to separate the skin from the muscle is an excellent method). If all else fails, dog food or heavily spiced ground meat is always an option.
