Brought 20 carcass coyotes to Petska today. 1 @$20 6@ $10 3@ $5 and 10 no sale due to weak necks or wrong color. Definitely a very weak market, but grateful Greg is still making the route and buying some fur.

Teach, I hope you saved the skulls to clean up and the baculum of the dogs. Even a cleaned busted up yote skull has more value than 10 of your critters. Very sad...

You did sell on the carcass but that still seems very low. And only half sold - the BETTER half.

I’m not sure the coyote market is that bad……..

yea putting up no value coyote for maybe a dollar or 2 makes a lot of sense i think selling the way you did was good time spent putting them up wouldnt have gained you that much some just hope for better things than they are maybe not putting them on the market right now would be a better option

A couple of my friends run coyotes with Walkers. They were told from the guy who has been pretty reliable for buying their furs that he wasn't buying any that were shot.

Depends a lot on where you are. Why would anyone sell western heavies on carcass? I can see it more for eastern or midwest dogs, but heavies from out west you're leaving a lot on the table by not putting them up.

The buyer left half the lot on the table. How much was really there?

Exactly, but.....you better learn to not wast your time on ones with lice, mange or serious defects in the fur. Ya gotta learn to tell the difference!

Bison88 - what did you do with the 10 that were “no sale”? Take them with you or leave them at Petska? Just curious. Thanks

i dout they were heavies if they were no value most buyers could care less if they buy or not but you guys want to keep trapping so they will try and make a dollar on them and maybe more if it turns around it isnt like they have a million invested just like going to the casino a lot of buyers have already folded

Most southeast SD coyotes typically go semi-heavies in normal years.

A number of years back, a friend of mine found 6 shot yotes in a pretty sparse ditch a couple hundred meters off of a county highway. He picked them up because he thought it looked bad and called me because he's never done anything with fur. At the time, bedroom town was one of the few spots in se SD that a certain multi-state country buyer stopped. I suspected these yotes were taken to that stop and the "boys" were told the carcasses had "no value" but they got po'd to leave them with the buyer for free, so drove out in the country a ways and dumped them.

I hadn't really played around with putting up yotes so I thought this might be some learning in how to do it. I had some coon to send to NAFA so decided to sent these mutts as well, even though it violated Boco's and others dictum "don't send junk". One yote was blown up so bad that I didn't even try and another one went bad on me between washing/drying it and boarding it (all of these suckers had to be thawed out) but I ended up finishing the other 4, including stitching up some pretty big holes.

All were graded damaged, no surprise (one was missing most of a back leg) but 2 got graded "heavy', so maybe the original shooters had got them further west or northwest of here. I got (before commission) $26, 10, 4, & 4 for them. Was it worth my time money wise, probably not, but I learned some fur handling. A few more years went by and during the 2018-19 season, my hs senior snared a couple yotes near by in January. The male was rubbed pretty bad so he ended up on "home tan" pile but the female looked pretty decent so I put her up. She graded semi-heavy at the 2019 NAFA spring sale with a valuation of $65. It ended up going for $80. I was pretty happy...

Semi's are not critters to pick on. Imo

I would bet there wasn't a heavy in the bunch, much less a heavy pale. We get a few SD coyotes at the NDFTA fur sale and every one has been a semi at best. We have sections of ND that does not produce many heavy coyotes. Some people can not see or feel the difference, but there is a difference. What have the temperatures been in SD the last week? It has been in the 40's here. Did the coyotes come out of a freezer? You can't blame the market for all of it. You haul in 50% junk coyotes to sell in a dropping market on the round and wonder why the price was low. The gravy train is gone.

you can make excuses all day long why they brought what they did the truth is if there was a demand for them they would all sell and for a lot more we have all seen it

I have a person that will take them for the skulls and good tails. Good year to learn to put them up, but I barely have enough time to trap. In this part of SD we have a very poor coyote to start with. Coarse hair and not the best color. 100 miles to the west starts to make a big difference in quality. Its going to be a tough year for this section of coyotes. We were just talking about 10 years ago we were selling coon for $20 and coyotes weren't worth much. Then coyotes went up, coons down. Now everything is down! Going to be an expensive hobby this year. However, as long as momma gets new shoes, she let's me keep trapping!

Bison, your sloughs all dried up down there...? A place that I trapped in 2019 that 35-50 huts in about 5-6 acres still has water in it but had only 1 new hut this year last week. Some other ones around the same area have a couple there, 3 here. Hate bugging people asking them to trap a place with 3 active huts on it.
