I never seen a kit fox either, the govt bios tell us we got a swift fox, which is the northern version of the kit. the swifty, hes the size of a half grown cat, full grown, the skin is so thin I can see my orange nitrile gloves thru the belly when I skun. they rip easy, we always do em first, if you do yotes or coons, the go onto swifties you just wreck em. I stretch em on a coon board (adjustable), and they measure like a xl coon. An xl coon is no commerical value, a swifty is 14 frn..........;) .......and zero fleshing. W a skin that thin they dry in 2-3 days as well. Easy to cage, they pay the gas, a real poor mans yote. Im lucky to have em. Like i say, they pay for gas, a dozen at a time.


Dont get me started on cat bellies.

heres a swifty.

Good evening fellers, still messing with song dogs here. Its been stinky, its been busy. We are up to 87 stretched now, including the ones I put on stretchers today. there is another 25 or so in the freezers, and im buying a coyote shooting contest saturday, so........there will be more. I have a load of frozen swifty hides in there as well, and a really nice red fox I caught yesterday, hell go to the tanner and go on my office/sitting room wall.

So, we are plugging along. My hands and back are holding up so far, I feel alot better than I did this time last year. This spring/summer, im moving my fur shed to another building, and installing unistrut on the ceilings to hang fur, a wood stove, a drying closet, a commerical wash machine, and a hide puller. The wife and I are considering formally throwing our hat in the ring, and getting a business license and starting a fur and antler buying business.

Good luck with the business if you go for it. Local guy North of me does well usually but got whacked by prices a few years back and just like farming, you deal with it.
Do you keep the glands for lure? That's another that if done right can bring in some coin.

No I am not currently saving glands, but ive talked w a lure maker in Ks and will start saving them for him next year. Dissecting coyote assholes for the win, fuck yea!

I like short tails and they did make a mockery out of the dogs once and again. Could have caught a lot of them if I was not so stone cold lawfull back then. it was the old "You can't use a feather thing." So I just run the shit out of them with the dogs.

Cats are fun to catch, they are so unpredictable. I have my cat line out, but havent connected yet. Soon come, im set right on top of em.

There is a citizens petition that will be introduced at the next colorado parks and wildlife rulemaking board meeting to outlaw cat trapping in colorado. Colorado has turned into a right piece of shit. Faggot govna, both houses dem owned, weed is nearly worthless, hemp pollen in the air next yr, we are fucked, and ruled by the socialists on the front range.

I hate them.

PS.....I forgot the 40 cent per gallon state fuel tax. I get my gas in Ks, 300 gallons at a time.

Well shit it ain't funny no more. The good ol' butt bar has been the cause of many broken and colored body parts.

The massey in that video has a license plate, is it really required. That vid and the the one done by the two cellos is me fav's of thunderstruck.

Have a very Merry Christmas and keep on keeping on.

Day-am you guys sure have a lot of coyotes over there. All the ones around here are parvo'ed out. In fact the coons are parvo'ed out even. I would knw as we/I haven't lost a chicken to un in two years....biggest predator I have to worry about is that dam chicken hawk.....hell the baldie that flew over just kept on a truck'n. And, yes I would have shot that f'er and sold the feathers.

A older male who looks to a younger woman for a primarily sexual relationship. It has predatory undertones...a chickenhawk is a man who takes advantage of a woman for sex

So is that way you are currently doing to that poor girl you're with now?

Or: an older gay male who prefers young gay men as sexual partners

Are you really just gay?

Quit being a dick nobody appreciates it.

We are covered up with dogs here, even running hard you wont make a dent in em. Ill take that back, after getting on some groups for a few years, you wont see mange, etc, like yer parvo anymore. them diseases are indicative of overpopulation. Mo nature knows how to take care of bidness.

That my friend will get you 3 hots and a cot at a Federal Prison for 5 years real quick. Hell, even the indians can not have Bald Eagle feathers whether they had molted out or found an already dead Bald Eagle.

What the fuck is wrong with you? First of all this has to do with a barn yard and the predators that feed on the chickens. It in no way could ever have been construed to what ever sexual fantasies you carry in your head.
You need help but I am not the one to render that help, nodammway.
I suggest you head for the whore house and get your backside pounded till you cannot think straight...oh wait, you already have.

I knew what Mike was referring to when he said chicken hawk. I have a few chickens and have had issues with hawks, ours are red-tailed hawks, hey, I've heard they taste something like chicken, anyway, what I think of when I see the word Chickenhawk is something entirely different. This - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/63699.Chickenhawk No perversion as suggested by the pervert eager eagle or whatever perversion he/she is into.

Well, the storm is finally here. Snowing like mad, winds to 50. Ought to have some tite chains in the morning.

The weather retards actually named this storm, although I didnt care enough to listen to what the name was. The world is full of fearful pussies and drama queens it seems.

Had a chickenhawk kill a chicken/rooster on the 25th. Seems he got his Christmas dinner as I was gone for the frivolities of the day. I never leave, like never and the day I do BLAM. I am in a bit of an argument with the owner of the dead rooster whom thinks it is a coyote or a coon. I mean hell it has been raining but there is no pad marks or at least toenail marks around the leg bone that is still attached to the tether. There are no tracks coming in, out or on or even around the chickens and coyotes are going to get more than one chicken but on the other hand I just don't see a hawk eating a whole rooster. BUT, all the tufts of small feathers that had skin attached were spread out into the field and there is not tracks with them...so I am going with the dreaded CHICKENHAWK due to the rater large oak tree over the chickens.....there is that then there is the a hawk that for some reason which is flying a lot faster than before.....kind of like he is energized now.

So I imported the big ass live trap and gave it to the owner and when I got back there it was, unset. I would put the legholds out but Butch grabbed them or some one did so all I have is one now. And,I am kicking my ass for selling all the others for 5bucks apiece at a yard sell because I just thought I would never have need of them again.

There were no tracks and there should have been I mean that rooster din't just eat himself so I am thinking death from above. My problem is I have never investigated what kind of tracks are left by a hawk then there are all those chicken tracks which were there.

You are right about one thing though "I do need a trail cam," as someone just drove out and I din't see them come in. Came in a turned around and all I seen was the tail lights.
