Coyote and beaver

I have been wanting to do some coyote and beaver hunting lately. I don't really know what to do with them afterward can you sell the pelts or tail if so how much is a good price.

Check with a local Taxidermist

Don't think you get to much for a coyote, but you could for a beaver. Check with your local Taxidermist. He would know more. I heard they sell left behind mounts.

Around here an unskinned, fleshed and dried pelt for either would do little more than 7-8 bucks-depending on size. Anything less than a really large beaver would do well to get that.

Im not sure of the legalities of shooting beaver, but I suspect illegal.

Some folks eat the beaver tail and the pelts can bring a bit if done right and not all shot up.

Depends on the origin. Good prime northern pelts are going to bring more than those down south.

On the yotes, case skin them and leave the feet intact, turn the ears and split the lips......they'll bring more.

Beaver are a pain to skin and flesh because of the fat. The skin has to be cut away from the carcass. You'll need someone of experience to show you how. It's actually pretty simple, but time consuming. Any bullet holes should be sewn up with waxed dental floss before you put the fur on a stretcher. also has a trapping and fur handling subforum with info on fur handling.
