I think FHA has NAFAs old coyote grader now. Correct me if I'm wrong though. That is probably the reason for similar grading.

I don't know how this sales is going to go but it sure is nice to be talking about lotting, grading and fur auctions rather than that other crap.

Only took 3 posts to switch from coon to coyote, and the first two were yours. smirk
Thanks for starting the FHA thread anyway.

Yes typically the top lot is in the western heavies. Look for a lot that has very few in it and are A selects. Usually between 20-40 skins. LLL

My coyotes graded about 1/3 as heavies at FHA, for the last few years at NAFA, they were running about 50%. To my untrained eye, the 1/3 seems accurate as hanging side by side in the garage, that's about what I came up with.
