It looks like well stick our toe in the pool, and take the fur markets vitals tomorrow. Im pulling the first 15 yote hides we skint from the cold storage barn today, and cleaning em up for an inspection, and possible sale tomorrow. After many phone calls, and as many opinions, its time to cut thru the bullshit and see what yotes are going to bring this season.

Just got back from meeting w the buyer. Avg of $63 on 15 coyotes. I ended up taking the first 5, the middle 5, and the last 5 yotes I put up. I think that gives me a pretty good avg to work with.

According to the prices I posted up the other day you're getting top dollar. Well done.

The prices you posted the other day are for Oklahoma coyotes. They are about as similiar to my coyotes (theyre not) as mine are to pits. I am happy with what I got, it was just a small sampling to test the market. I still have 371 coyotes left to sell. Out of those 15 I had 2 that brought 90, which is unheard of for this area.

There are guys up here still chasing the dogs but the hides are plain just not as good as they were. Kinda/sorta like me old lumber jacket that starts out new but every time I push through a bush a few threads get pulled, it gets a rip here then a rip there, maybe a burn spot or three that all add up to a comfortable coat that looks like shit[to others]. Everytime a coyote lays down for a rest a few hairs stick to the ice and when it goes through a barbwire fence it leaves traces behind.
As a shooter I'd be ecstatic to have someone who would buy my pelts of late season dogs cause it may help recoup a little gas money. As far as the stink goes, it goes away. I know when I put my sprayers to bed for the winter I absolutely hate bringing them out for a couple more jobs but it's been done just cause it's what we do.
Hope you get 3 $20's back for everyone you put out man.
