I've been yote hunting a few times. I haven't done it in years just because I do not know of anything to do with them. I just cannot justify killing something and letting it lay. anyone with uses for the dogs? I'd like to go and call and maybe shoot.

Why not sell the furs? I know they don't go for much, but at least its something. Also, you could try eating them. I never have, but they might be OK if you cook em right.

I agree. I tan the hides out if they are nice enough, without mange or parasite speaking, and I sell them locally. It pays for some the gas bill, plus nothing goes to waste. I use the meat for jerky, grind the bone for a soil amendment, and the gutpile to attract other yotes and predators for hunting. I even had a pair of wild pigs rumaging through the yote gutpile once, talk about a shocker![8D]

I just called my local DNR office and they are going to fax over a list of liscenced fur traders/buyers in the area.
All it took was a 3 min. phone call.

Unusual colors and good prime coats go for up to $500 on taxidemy.net There are also usually beginners looking for lesser hides. Don't cut or skin and get them in a freezer ASAP. Coyotes, fox and bobcats are bad for slipping (fur falling out). Hey if you can make $100 for a good one it makes it even more worth it. I know good western bobcats can bring upward of $350 if little damage. Taxidermist are picky about what they buy, but they will buy especially if you get a good reputation going. Just a thought

I jerky them out, never used them for stew and the like. The meat is tender enough with the jerky, but does need some additives for it to be less plain tasting.
