The signs are there.IMO Nice to have a hot market, but when junk starts getting bought too high then somebody down the line will lose big. IMO That will not help for the next year.

There are some nice coyotes coming out of NM. Especiallly from the higher elevations. Some of them are better than our north Idaho coyotes, which tend to be semi-heavy brownish colors.

You broke the code! When a particular species has a hot market the auctions favor the shipper to attract more skins being sent to them. When the market is slow the grade tightens and the buyers are given a better deal to keep them buying.

Thanks for the pixs. Neat looking collections!!


No yotes sold from South Dakota? Is that just this year or is it typical...?

We normally don't get South Dakota coyotes. Guessing the route buyers get the bulk of them.

There was a fur sale in Bismarck, North Dakota a couple of weeks ago. Maybe the South Dakota coyotes went there, as the trappers could be there in person rather than shipping to Colorado.

Yes, I know the South Dakota trappers can drive to Colorado to deliver their furs and watch the sale. However, that involves a week of the trappers time. Fur has to be there on February 2 or 3. Raw fur sold on the 7. Several days to kill, though the CTA would appreciate the help if you wanted to pitch in. smile

Note - I'm not knocking the Colorado sale. In fact, I'm a big supporter of that sale. Just stating some facts.

Hardly anyone shows up to volunteer to set up that assoc sale, the premiere coyote sale in the whole of America.

All the speculators can suck eggs.

The special guest showed up with his checkbook, and bought 1900 coyotes. We said thank you sir. And he wants to buy more.

Actually the "special" guest OD was referring to was the fox man himself Phil Brown, who stopped by to say hi on his was home to PA from a western adventure.

Having Phil Brown stop by definately qualifies as "a special guest".

As far as I know, I was the only one from South Dakota at the North Dakota auction this year. Honesty, most people around here sells on the carcass. There are at least two buyers stopping through our little town. Not many people put fur up around here. I'll try and send a few next year so we can see how the South Dakota coyotes compare to the rest.
