Ditto on leaving them lay. Not worth the time and fuel to sell them. Especially when they have a gaping hole in them.

But back in Nebraska in November I noticed that the yotes had a very thick silvery grey coat.They looked like wolves compared to Ca. I was told by the locals they made money on the pelts depending on how cold it got ! I couldn't think of wanting to skin this animal unless it was worth it.Thanks for the info everyone. I looked it up on the internet and found the same results so I will continue to leave them lay. PJ

Later on, sarcoptic mange became epidemic, and killled off most of the coyotes. No hide money, no bounty, no nothin'.

you couldn't get $60 in your gas tank back then either. It was considerable money. Coons were up as high as $40...I mean...uh... that's just what I heard cause I'm a young whipper snapper

Minn. coyotes brought an avr of 18.50
Fox brought 18-20.00
Texas coyotes brought an avr. of 18.00
Most fur has a value its just up to the hunter weither or not he tries to salvage the hides...

Later on, the buyer bought and built a pretty decent house a mile up the road from Mike, complete with skinning sheds, three LARGE walk-in freezers, and enough salt stored in the outbuildings to keep deer and cows happy for a LONG time. Harvey got into trouble, got divorced and had to sell that nice house, sheds, freezers, etc. for a song. My stepbrother bought it giving me a fine, fine facility for hanging and dressing deer.

On a side note, I have been looking for a coyote pelt for a friend (itís a running gag between the two of us about him needing one to get a girl where he lives). If some one takes a yote (or has a spare skin) and is willing to skin it, freeze the hide and then ship it to me in a Styrofoam cooler with some dry ice I will happily pay packing + shipping + $15 for your time. It dose not haft to be a nice one and can even have a hole in it (note, I donít want a completely trashed hide). Just something I can give him for the holidays to perpetuate the laughter over his predicament. If you have one drop me a line.
