Default Fur prices 2018

Hell-o everyone,
I was pleasantly surprised (ecstatic actually) with the price I received for my coyote pelts this season. $57.00 + change on average. In the good ole days of the 1980's when I used to trap them I was averaging $60.00; so when my fur buyer offered this years price, nearing that of decades ago pricing; I was elated. "Northern Heavies" are up to $100 each and "semi" are holding strong.
While sharing what I consider to be my good fortune, I was curious what you guys are getting for your coyote pelts ....I hope all of you get great prices for your coyote pelts to offset the cost of "doing business"! Haa ha

They do make an attractive coat (in my opinion); I almost bought a well made professionally sewn coat that I thought was beautiful, but I procrastinated and the next time I went to look at it, it was gone....aahh Although, I did tan one last year just to hang it on the wall.

Sad to hear that. Have they ever been worth anything in Missouri?

You can go online and type in How to make fur mittens, or fur hat. It's really not that hard. I have already made buckskin, brain tan method. It came out really soft and white. But now were going to do fur on with our skins.

Very nice, the next tan I would like to do is a brain tanning. I have kept half dozen coyote brains frozen and ready for when I get that pelt I like. I would like to tan a badger also. Good luck with your tanning projects and if you would; share them here; I would like to read them and see some pics. haha
