No boat building a little CALLING

Postby d4570 » Sat Jan 20, 2018 7:25 am

I needed a brake from Boat Building (AKA water bug airboat )and freezing cold shop.
SO I went calling today. It was a heat wave with 2" of new snow +13* and mostly calm .
Loaded up the Snowmobile and pull utility sled and headed north.
We needed to get out before the ice fisherman hit the ice. I planed to take my fox pelt as a decoy but left it behind dang it.
We did Have our silhouette " Kojo" and the shockwave.
Wonderful day and called in a lot of coyotes. We felt the decoy was kinda of a detriment and making the coyotes hang up at 300 yards plus.
I had one dead to rights but I missed My boy did much better with a off hand over my head shot at a coyote sneaking up behind us.
300 yards 17 hornet off hand and we had one down, he is a great shot.
Ice fisherman where crawling all over us by now so we left.

Can you see the bullet tip sticking out of the coyote ,
Just the plastic tip the bullet exploded in side like it is designed to do.

My boy just sold 9 Coyote pelts from Last year , to free up freezer space for this years crop.
$495 averaged $55 apiece.

just skinned and frozen not finished .
He is going to buy a 110 volt "flux core" wire welder with part of the cash.

This is some of what we are getting with the cash.

Not a big unit but very portable and we can run it off our generator we already have . In the event we have a structural problem in the on sight water testing the air boat, period...
The other portion will be to insolate and finish the Boys shed so we can "finish " the hides and get another $25 each.

I've not looked at the market for pelts in a long time. It seems like "real fur" is a bad word anymore. Where do this pelts actually go?

Not a bad day calling. Sounds like you're getting better price than we are here in the northeast. We have been averaging $20-30 a piece.

I looked on Ebay at coyote fur coat prices. Maybe you should buy an industrial sewing machine...
