They keep messing around with poking it with sticks. Why not just shoot it from a safe distance?

Whale skin is so thick, bullets generally won't penetrate it.

They're also not "just poking it with a stick." They even show the blade on one of the parts. They're cutting it open enough to let the gas out.

No, I get the skin and fat combo is too thick. But maybe make a small cut, enough to thin a part of the skin, and THEN shoot it.

I feel like a .50 bmg rifle ought to be able to pierce a whale hide.

Cool. Because your feelings are what matter.

Of course they are. You gotta visualize what you want to happen and it'll happen.
