I never weighed it,it is a young female-med size on the board.
Probably weighed 65 lb or so.

Not big enough for the auction.Everything else is good on it-colour weight and quality-but too small.

If it was bigger It would sell for good money.Cant say a number,each skin sells alone not in lots and proper handling is BIG when it comes to wolves and other potential taxi species.Its all about the head and feet as far as the handling goes.The best price I ever got for wolfhides at auction was the Light Tawneys,exception being clear blacks.

Boco, after you get a CITIES tag on a wolf hide is it then legal for you to ship it to someone over here in the States?

I tried it once-way too much hassel.
Way easier for an American to come here and buy it and take it back with him.
I've sold quite a few to people here hunting with an outfitter.They had no problems bringing them back to the states.
