Chris Pratt, the “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor who covers GQ’s December issue, is all about some coyote-killing. He revealed in his interview for the magazine that not only is he on board with shooting them, but skinning and tanning them, too.

And why does Pratt enjoy shooting coyotes?

“Because coyotes are assholes, and they’ll eat your dog.”

Pratt, who impulsively bought a red $50,000 Ford F-150 Raptor pickup on his way home from a bachelor party in Reno, said he owns a load of guns, and keeps a stash of them at his home in Washington because many of them aren’t legal where he lives in California.

“I do a lot of predator hunting, farm varmints, out in Wyoming. Oh, my God. Get a farmer that’s just got too many and he’s like, ‘Fuckin’ kill as many as you want,'” Pratt said.

Though Pratt’s wife, actress Anna Faris, doesn’t approve of his hobby, Pratt said he “just likes to kill ’em.”

But he doesn’t quit there.

Pratt skins them when he’s finished too, and uses his own urine to do so.

“You get this stuff called Krowtann, which is like this really, really crazy, abrasive stuff, and then you dump it in water, and—it has instructions that come with it, but you can do it on your own, too, with, like, Borax and salt. Mix it up half-and-half, lay the skin out, cut off as much of the meat off the skin as you can — like, the bits of fat and stuff — and then you put the salt on it and Borax, and then you let it dry for a couple days and scoop it out and use vinegar and scrub it, use your own urine and scrub it.”
