Heads up

Postby Dcoy » Sat Jan 02, 2016 2:06 pm

Buddy n I just sold some fur after a trip out west.We left a couple laying out there cause of mange only to find out that buyer would have taken them anyway to fill a 'junk order' he had received. :( Might want to check with your buyer(s).

Supplemental heads up.Just had a great trip 'out west' and sold our fur a few minutes ago.Averaged $50 on regular coyotes(whole)but only $5 for the mangy one. :( Thank god we only brought back one of the 3 shot.Will never drag 1 again.
Sidenote:Buyer in a sour mood cause of the way the mink auction in Denmark was going today.I don't understand it except that ranch mink are killing 'wilds' and Denmark has and sells the finest.

That's been going on for some time with the ranch mink, lots of them got dumped on the market..

P.S. just toss the mangy or low grade hides. :shock: The buyer is just taking money off the top of your good ones to make the deal look sweet. :oops:

Wrong on this guy Tim.At least in my case. :D
For $5-8 just not going to deal with mange anymore.
Sadly getting too many of these lately.

Yup.Very happy so far.Ran into another local hunter this AM who got $60 on 1 last week.
Been basically hunting 3 separate areas n mange has showed up in all though. :(
Heading way north Wednesday n hopefully won't run into it.

Wife and I took a 2 day ride and did well.Averaged $40 with these 6 so market dropping with quality.Buyer expects a 'significant' downturn in the coyote market at the big April auction. :(
(click on pic n hopefully flip it)

Yeh mine weren't put up of course.Buyer is Jim Beadle from Aberdeen.Suspect he'd match or beat the price you mentioned.A friend sold 20 some put up ones to him last week and did very well.Sometimes criticized as 'low' on prices but IMO not true at all.Certainly not once you establish a relationship with him-and deal with him personally.
A real character and old timer.Here's a recent article on him.

http://www.aberdeennews.com/outdoors/an ... 623f9.html

He's been in the business a long time and last week told me how many coyotes he's bought over the last 40 some years.(2000 last week here n surrounding States alone)Wow is all I could say.

Another comment on Jim.Hard not to like and deal with a guy who runs a Billboard on the highway that states:Wear Fur;eat meat;Keep your guns and salute the flag.
