Coyotes and crows won’t even eat a otter
The old lady pulled into the driveway last night and saw a coyote trying to pull a ziplock bagged otter skull off a cable spool by my garage.

I believe that coyote planned on setting it on fire in front of your door, ringing the doorbell and running. :dunno:

One of my favorite quotes from Wiley Carrol, "Anything that stinks has value as coyote lure."

Alchase: I have been schooled that wolves could be vectors of a varity of blood borne diseases. I have been taught to wear gloves and wash my skinning tools in bleach solution after skinning wolves. And honestly it wasnt a hard sell. Some wolves are really nasty. Its not like theyve rolled in something rotten, its just a really rank smell that permeates your skin.
I remember a wolf I skinned last year. I wore rubber gloves when I skinned it. I had to go out right after skinning it. I was home for two days, where I took three showers and washed my hands several times. When I got back to camp, I could still smell that wolf on my hands.
I am impressed with the trappers in Alaska and Canada who have to hang frozen wolves in their cabins to thaw before skinning.
Oh well, the sweet smell of success.

But the sweet smell off cash when that hide sells would probably offset the smell on your skin :o

From "Meateater"
Badger meat made quite a few appearances in mountain men journals. Historian Martin Schmitt noted that meals of badger were often a sign of necessity, or in cases like mine, curiosity. “Eaten by Lewis and Clark, and Wyeth, and listed by Farrow as a possible meal, the badger has never been acclaimed with enthusiasm as meat,” Schmitt wrote.

My favorite badger dining account comes courtesy of Thomas Becknell, though. While en route from Missouri to New Mexico, he encountered a badger for the first time and perfectly described the alien varmint.

“We found a ludicrous looking animal, unknown to any one of our company,” Becknell wrote. “It was about the size of a raccoon, of a light gray color, had uncommonly fine fur, small eyes, and was almost covered with long, shaggy hair.”

With an open mind, Becknell and his crew gave the badger meat a try. His review of the flesh is one of the first on record: “Its meat was tender and delicious.”

Ha ha Kid, Im guessing they were pretty hungry.
Reminds me of the two Mountain Men tasked with carrying dispatches from Wyoming to Missouri during the winter. After a long spell of terrible weather and no game around, they got lucky and shot two Ravens.
Later one of them was asked how did the Raven taste. He answered, he didn't know, he'd eaten it so fast he'd never tasted it.
