Coyote pelts.
« on: October 31, 2009, 11:21:31 PM »

I checked on the President's page at the Utah Trappers site and it looks like $10.70 for the average price on a 'yote pelt.  Apparently taxidermists will pay you more for a coyote but they tend to want the whole 'yote.  "In the round." Some guys keep a freezer for them.  Price is on condition of the fur which varies on the time of year, how much mange and stuff is in the population and the scarcity of the coloring.  Right now fur is not too fashionable but if we have a long cold number of years that might change.  Some states or counties you get a bounty for turning in an ear.  In the good times guys would double dip in Texas, get the ear fee and sell the pelt.

   Yeah.

Me and dad usually put up a fair number but....

the average of $10 ($20 for a good one) isn't worth it.   Still enjoy calling, so we'll still get a few, but won't bother taking care of them.        Sad, but they are pretty thick and need thinning out anyway.

We had a 30 dollar bounty out here for a while.  I made a lot of bank on it.

Here on the Rez a processed (cured, tanned, whatever...) coyote pelt goes for approx $70 depending on the quality. The locals who dance use them in their dance regalia. Tourists also snap them up especially when store owners falsly advertise them as wolf pelts. Some are surprisingly beautiful.

Out here a good pelt can go for more... I had offers of up to 100 bucks for decent pelts.  But I never had a "decent" one.  7mm kind of ruins them. 

The bounty is only 10 bucks now.  So it's hardly worth it.  If I can get into the Utah State Senate, I'll make sure there is a decent bounty again.    Oh, and we only had to clip the ears, which made it convenient.

Most of them I see around here (W WA) are scrawny things- although i did see one last year that I would have sworn was a wolf- gray, about the size of a medium shepard dog-and solid, wide chest.  Some other folks around have remarked on seeing it, or similar coyote's.  The little ones look like a stiff steel toed kick would get rid of them but this one was a different story.

Holy crap. So, do they offer bounties to out-of-staters? If you get in senate and the bounty goes back up to that point, I think I'm going to round up friends for trips over the border, pay off some college loans.

I've heard .223 is a good coyote round, what does that do to the pelts? What about 5.45, is that a good coyote round, and what will it do to pelts?

.223 should be more than enough for a coyote--as long as you have HP's.  They don't usually get much more than 12" thick on the chest, so HP's will vivisect them quite nicely.  I just hope that the strain of zombieism that the p-dogs have doesn't cross species into the coyotes... :zinfect :panic :hide

A little  :offtopic but, in the spring, there will be prairie dog AND coyote hunting?  That is, if a shindig is still in the works...I know that I'd turn in a few bounties to help out.

Good to know. Course, I'm not a good enough hunter to take anything wilier than pronghorn quite yet.
