    A pile like that would have made for a good seasons wages for a kid back in the day. In the late 70s, trapped, skinned and stretched, about $75 ea, that little red fox around $200. Accounting for inflation that's about $300ea for coyotes by today's standards.
    Starting early 80s, fur farms and Libs tanked the market. Haven't kept track since.
    I mostly trapped thru high school, occasionally called them into buckshot or .22 range.
    Looks like you guys are doing a number on the hides, beyond what a few minutes with a needle and thread would fix.
    Buzzard food.

    And yes, they take a toll on deer population during birthing season.

    My gosh, I love bighorns. If there is one animal I could hunt in this lifetime that I haven't already pursued, that's the one. Well...that and ibex, if we're including overseas. We have things good in Alaska, but I sure wish there were a way I could get a bighorn tag. Someday, perhaps...

    Thanks for that picture!

    Huge coyote!!

    I havent seen a coyote that big since a teenager living in SE Colorado in the late 70's. I called them in at night to a red spotlight dinner.

    Alaska coyotes seemingly half that size!! But fun to hunt after jumping out the door of a Cub
