    Just curious, I've got access to a ranch with a bunch and want to take the kid out to call some dogs. Are the pelts worth keeping?

    thx

    I'd be interested in large quantities of low grade pelts and maybe skulls/bones from predators like coyotes or any small game. Please PM me.

    I used to get about one hundred bucks per pelt trapping/shooting them. Sometimes more from a Canadian buyer. I don't know if S Cal pelts get thick enough to be desirable to buyers but the Colorado ones were.

    We would shoot them in Idaho at my grandpa's house.
    He told us to hang them on the fence. He said it keeps the others away.

    This may come across as ignorant or offensive but it’s definitely not intended to be....

    I am new to hunting and I need to get out and get after something. I’ve been considering coyote hunting as a good building block into larger game. I would definitely try to harvest the pelts, but my goal is to get some time in the field and “practice” if you will. There’s only so much time I can spend at the range before I need to make an effort on something in the field.

    Another point of this is to get more time understanding different game/ terrain and how to become a better hunter. The last thing I would want to do is wound a deer or pig with a poor shot.

    If it matters - I recently inherited an old Ruger M77 25-06 with a vortex diamondback 4x12 mounted. It’s in great shape and I’ve had good groups at 100 yards at the range and on BLM.

    Thanks BD!

    Been hunting all my life. Dad told me If I shoot it I have to eat and never kill something just for the sake of killing and I have lived by that my entire life. Killing a coyote IMO will not make you a better hunter . Learning how to stock and knowing the area you hunting in , along with a long list of other things will. I would suggest finding a friend who is a seasoned hunter and have him take you out scouting before you hunt or take him with you during your first hunt.Having said that I don't kill coyotes and never will. Now if I were a rancher and coyotes were killing my livestock it would be a different conversation. I have them in the fields and mountains around my house they don't bother me and I don't bother them. I enjoy seeing them roam around I figure with human encroachment on their territory they will be pushed out eventually anyways..
    I know this will probably raise a stink here ..no drama intended. One last thing time spent on a shooting range is very important 50yd,100yd,150yd,200yd keep the shots tight on a continuous bases and you are good to go. Nothing worse that a bad shot in the field a clean kill is what we all want ..

    Eric, I agree. If it is proven that they are having a negative impact on the deer population or the balance is off in populations size in certain areas, or they are being a pest/nuisance, fine, take them out. But I don't get the indiscriminate slaughter of them.

    Maybe I'm just getting soft n my old age.

    Appreciate the feedback. I know there are a few sides to this topic so I don’t mean to stir the pot either.

    As much as love backpacking and camping in remote areas, I also love seeing critters in the wild. I fish with the same mentality, if I’m not going to eat it then it goes back over the rail.

    I do have some in-laws in east county that ranch hogs and cattle. If they happen to have an issue with coyote and their livestock it might be a consideration.

    Id be willing to take you out on a hunt to show you the ropes for coyotes. My pig hunting spot is reserved for wounded warrioirs who are recently discharged veterans. But we need to thin the herd of coyotes to keep the deer and pig population up.

    Thanks BD![/QUOTE]
