Default Coyote tail

I have friend with a 'yote problemm. They ate his cat. Sadly for them, this was a scant two weeks after he got the suppressor for his AR. The man is on a mission, he loved that kitten. But I'm thinking Wile 's poor choice of which cat to eat could be our gain. I mentioned to him how good fox tail was for fly tying. We both figure coyote would be even better as the hair is longer and its very water reppellent. The question we both have is this. After detaching it from the south end of a coyote, how do you dry, salt and preserve it so it can sit on the tying bench and not stink up the house? If someone knows please post, as coyote tails will be offered soon after. I mean hell, he's mumbling about IR goggles and needs to defray the expense. He really loved that cat.

You posted on another site & I replied. The entire hide would be useful & valued IMO.

Check this out, which I also posted on the other site. Should help explain some fur handling.

I already have coyote tails, and really like tying with it.

I agree. There is no reason to waste the pelt.

Simple hide processing: http://www.theflyfishingforum.com/fo...rocessing.html

Also. coyote ties-up and acts the same in the water as dog hair.

a trapper friend of mine told me just a few minutes ago he realized $65 on a Coyote pelt at the fur auction.
I'd say sell the pelt and buy some material with the money.
by the way anyone have any Muskrat fur pieces to trade or sell or give away?

First thing I do is spray them with raid. Coyotes are thick with fleas and ticks.

Coyote fur was used on military parkas for years because it doesn't frost up. It is an excellent tying material, and well worth the effort to tie with.
We hunted coyotes in the 70's and it paid very well. There was a bounty on them due to the livestock deaths they caused. We got paid for each tail provided to the livestock association, and paid again for the pelt by a fur buyer, and a third time for the carcass from a petfood manufacturer.
We made a lot of money, and saved a lot of calves and lambs that season.
If you do harvest your own, wear rubber gloves until you inspect the pelts and are sure they are not manegy or flea infested.

You know your life has gotten weird when you can anwer that question in the affirmative. Even weirder when you have to dig through, antelope, skunk, deer, badger and mink hide to find it. But yeah, I have a small NIB pack in a natural russet. Make me an offer. BTW the price is free just send me a couple of your tied flies and its good alternativly I'll settle for a spool of 3/0 thread.
