Selling Hides
« on: July 22, 2008, 09:17:13 AM »
 Anyone sell there yote hides? For the most part when I shoot one I leave him out for bait, but with the current price of fuel Im looking at ways to help pay the cost of my affliction. Im thinking if I can sell 1 or 2 each time I head out I can pay half of my fuel cost. Just needing to know if anyone buys them around Spokane and what kind of care do they need befors you sell them.Any help would be most appreciated.

Sagedawg,

As far as "prep" that's up to you... you can skin stretch and dry your pelts, skin and freeze, or sell "in the round" (the whole animal).

Often times, the whole animal has a value that exceeds that of the pelt, and can save you the effort of skinning and handling.

There's a video out, by a gentleman named Blaine Eddy, on skinning coyotes, that would give you a good leg up on things, if'n you decide to put up your own hides.

And, I sell some really nice adjustable 'cat/coyote hide stretchers, made from cedar (and many other sizes too).

As far as a Spokane buyer, I'm not real sure on that, but the best fur buyer around, Geo. Brady of Cascade Biological Supply, is up north in Pateros.
Many taxidermists are interested, so that may be your best "local" option.
The Washington State Trappers Assoc. has a fur sale each spring, one on each side of the hill.
Otherwise, to save fuel costs, a chest freezer will store enough coyotes to make a trip to a fur buyer worthwhile.

Summer coyotes are WORTHLESS, if you're going to sell fur, you'd better wait 'til it primes up (in Nov).

If I can be of any more help, with this, let me know?

Krusty  :hello:
Sarcasm; just one of the many services I offer.

When I shoot my yotes I just take them to a guy in Pateros, Washington. He does everything.. I averaged about $23.00 a yote last year.. He hands me a check and does does everything else with the yote....

George will even pick your hides up if he's going thru your area, Give him a call and he'll let you know when he's passing thru. He usually makes trips to Yakima etc. in the spring to pick up hides.
