You can only sell the pelts during the trapping season which is mid november to mid February. That is when the hides are prime. During this part of the winter, the hides will bring from $25 to $75 depending on the area and the quality of the hide.

Remember that the dogs are having pups about April and if you kill an adult coyote in the spring or summer, you are likely contributing to starving a litter of pups. Wait until late fall and then shoot as many as you can find and make money doing it.

Step 1: Shoot coyote
Step 2: Throw in truck and drive to nearest barb wire fence
Step 3: Locate a fence post
Step 4: Cut a longways slit in bottom of coyote jaw
Step 5: Place slit in jaw over fencepost
Step 6: Allow to hang

Thats how we do it. IIRC, a few years ago there was a rabies breakout and the Game Warden said you were just supposed to leave em lay. It was illegal to move em.

I would like to know if anybody in my area buys pelts. I had no idea you could sell the things. What the heck would somebody do with a yote hide anyway?

PETA pretty well ruined the fur market on them. I think they make awesome coats for cold weather. I will wear fur just to irritate PETA . As far as someone saying something about it let them, Im to far from the red carpets to worry about paint being thrown on me.

Their backstraps make great sesame beef. I feed the rest to my dogs while singing She Drives Me Crazy from the Fine Young Cannibals.

She drives me crazy
like no one else
She drives me crazy
and I can't help myself

I'd like to hang a few nice pelts on my garage wall. The only one I shot this winter I blowed up with a .243 win. 85 gr. Sierra HPBT so I cut off the head and tail & took em' down to my friends "Skull & Bones" shop and paid him to make me a nice European mount and I'll hang the tail from my motorcycle somewhere. I bought some Sierra 90 gr. FMJBT's to try out this coming winter.

They stay where they lay. Not worth it anymore to skin 'em.
