    They were apparently one of the most important fur-bearers (after beavers of course) in early American history, but what about now?

    Just finding someone that would take it off your hands would be hard let alone sell it.

    I doubt you could train a hide to fetch anything, without the muscles and bones the hide would have a very hard time running after a ball or stick. You could try though, you might have some luck with it.

    I like how this guy thinks! :D



    Regarding coyote hide value: I bet you could hang it up at the local hunting store with a donation cup and do pretty well of the rabbit hunting public. "buy me bullets for the next one"

    Fur prices are higher than they've been in decades. China is buying every fur we can send them, and it's possible to make a decent living from trapping once again. Condition is everything, and coyote hide need to be take in cold weather months to be worth much, but good ones sell at auction for anywhere from twenty to fifty dollars, depending on size and condition.

    In my area, a good size coyote in a thick winter coat can go on average for $35 if you dont tear em up too bad.

    if you live in Texas you can get $10 a peice. search coyote bunty or coyote prices and something like Texas hunters asociation will show click on it. im not really sure whether or not you would want to dot that because gas plus ammo and your time cutting wood would probly earn you more money.

    or if you or know someone who is good with working with hides and furs have them turn them into different goods for you. i have a lady to make me moccasins and all kinds of stuff can go down to the city and the open markets and the yuppies eat it up i could most likely sell a pair of mits or mocs for what you get for selling the whole thing away to someone else

    Fur traders in the western U.S. are paying $10-$18 for hides. They are very selective however. Top prices are paid for finished select hides with absolutely do damage.
