Ft. Robinson is about an hour east of Lusk. It has a neat museum and there will be musical plays going on there that time of the year. Something your wife might enjoy.

Fort Robinson is a great place to visit. I'd only heard about it in books before I moved down here 8 years ago. We stopped by there one time on a drive through, and was so impressed, that we visit it at least once a summer. It has a great museum, and just to drive around the expanse of it, and read the many historical plaques, takes hours. It was a cavalry re-mount station, a K-9 training center, and a bunch of other things, over the years. It is now a Nebraska State Park, and one of the most interesting places you'll ever visit. And, like has already been mentioned, the Museum of the Fur Trade, about 35 miles further east, in Chadron, is a must-see. They just keep adding more. I've been there several times, and keep seeing new things.

As for the 'musicals', yes, I too was skeptical. But, the Post Playhouse at Fort Robinson had 5 plays every summer, that rotate over the course of a few months. They have semi-pro actors, from all over the country, and, I have to admit, they are really good! Some real talent is exhibited there. I take my wife over 2-3 times every year, and have supper on the way over, along with a couple of our friends.

All of these things could be done on Sunday, after the Coyote Days. It would be a great addition to a trip, and I know they'd appeal to the majority of you.

Yes, the Demo list is probably going to be run in that order. Otis Latham & Todd Fairchild will start it off at Noon on Friday, with skinning a coyote, and handling it. They'll do another one on Saturday, putting up some green coyote hides, sewing, and then drumming some. Those guys are master coyote handlers, and are also agents for the Colorado fur sale. They know their stuff! Some of Todd's drums will be at Coyote Days.

I'll see if I can get the demo list posted. Thanks.

I will be there and coming from Minnesota. Really looking forward to this opportunity to learn. Doesn't matter how old you are, there is always room to expand your knowledge. Thanks for all the work Mr. Graham. Very much appreciated.


Life is short, tomorrow is promised to none of us. Make the best of every day you have

Grahams run a tight ship, These demos start on time and run back to back, no down time. The day will go fast so be ready to learn. Otis and I will try to hit on the basics of coyote skinning/fleshing, stretching on Friday. Saturday will be the finer points of making fur presentable. I have had numerous request to show how to skin out feet, that will be done at the Saturday time slot.

Saturday nights steak supper is worth the trip alone. I don't know about those two characters from Colorado giving skinning demos but I'd pay special attention when Boone starts his demo.

CoCat had better not forget my peaches is all I have to say.

I don't know yet. They will get cheaper as the season goes on. They are just coming on. 1's will be pricey, 2's about half price.

We do TRY to run a tight ship, yes! I've got some real opinions on how demos should be run, and they are based on 25 years of giving demos all over the country (which I am grateful for)

Starting on time requires that the previous demo winds up a few minutes early. It always takes a few minutes to get the wireless mic on the next person, and have the announcer introduce the next presenter, along with a brief description on what they will be talking about.

I will help write a few of the introductions, because I know some of the guys are WAY too humble, and won't relay their accomplishments to the announcer ( I have them talk well in advance). There will be 15 demos in 2 days. 5 on Friday, and 10 on Saturday. Like MonsterToms said, they will be run back to back. From 8 a.m., until 6 p.m. on Saturday.

This weekend was designed to give the maximum amount of information and insight to the coyote industry. I picked some of the best to do just that. And, to spice things up even more, the Friday Night Round table, featuring Major Boddicker, Bill Ilchik, Joel Blakeslee, Dick Hane, and Keith Gregerson will be the place to ask questions, and learn.

I think what is so interesting about trapping is that there are a lot of ways to get the job done. Everyone seems to have their own little twists and methods. It is up to YOU to decide which system and method will work best for YOUR situation. Having over 500 years of coyote & 'cat trapping and snaring experience and knowledge in front of you for a weekend is almost unheard of!

John, what time do you expect the Roundtable to start?

That's going to be a heck of a conversation.
