Dang Dusty, you've been busy, as usual! I haven't been around here too much lately because of school and hobbies, but whenever I make it on here to check things out you've always got some more pictures to look at 8) Good job, keep bringing that young fella with ya too and get him hooked!

Coyotes are looking a little rough but theres still a few that look decent. Cats still look great. I still can't believe the size of that coyote. He looked better than the pic shoes so I'll put him up.

I found this cat in one of my snares this morning. I haven't caught one this big before. It feels like it ways around 30#. I'll weigh it tonight on a friends scale that he uses when he puts on his hunts. I know the biggest one out of this country last year was 47'' when stretched and I can't remember the weight. I'll have to do a speed dry to get this one ready to sell tomorrow.

I sold 4 cats to John Graham last night. Really a good guy. Took the time and answered all of my questions and really gave me some good advice on putting up fur. My cats brought the most out of any there. There were only 18 cats sold last night. I averaged an even $500. I gecided to hpld on to the big one just because I wanted to look at him more! :D :D
He also paid $30 for about 20 feet on fox, the fox averaged around $15. Coyotes seemed to average around the 25 -$30 mark. Very few badger and 1 guy sold 8 put up skunks for $5.
