Coyote Skins~

I have had the occasion to have an extra lying around after I shoot one that has been killing my critters. Nobody wants them around here, so I hang them over the back fence and the work as a great deterrent in keeping other out of the yard.

The next time I get one, I'll give you a call!!

You want raccoon too??

If someone wants it, I'll skin it,,, I used to give them to a taxidermist friend, but he's retired now,,, So, I just drape the whole thing on the back fence. It really works well in keeping others away!!

If you just want the skins, soak in brine to remove the hair and prepare for the tanning process. If you want to save the pelt for preperation, use rock salt (on the skin side)and freeze until you are able to properly prepare the pelt. (This is only a temp way of keeping the pelt intact.)

Keep the brains!...Rubbing the brains in the skin is a natural way of making the skin very soft when tanning...Other things like tannic acid, which can be obtained from soaking oak bark is another great thing to have.

There are other methods of tanning, and modern ways are less time consuming...I just know the ways I was taught.

No, 'cause hanging dead coyotes on the fence to keep others away = similar treatment for salesmen, I would imagine.

Our clan leader will be hanging on the fence next to that coyote if he can't be on topic. It was his own words. I used to have a salesman come around here until he saw me cleaning my rifle right there in my garage. Had a good friend tell me I could target shoot out there in Enumclaw, and use the coyote as my target. Never had the chance, he died 7 months later. 60 acres.

Hey you Washingtononians, Is it still cold there?.

I bet coyote skin seat covers would be cool - I mean warm in the winter.
Are the hides any good. I have a motorcycle project that needs leather saddlebags. I would need them tanned of course.
Maybe I'll stick to cowhide - Got moose hide?

Thank goodness for Ford trucks and our personal contribution to the greenhouse effect.

I guess you guys will have to breakout the sunblock tomorrow.

WE DO!
