So I went calling...

Postby 870slugger » Sat Jan 13, 2018 8:18 pm

I needed a brake from Boat Building 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.

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 period...
The other portion will be to insolate and finish the Boys shed so we can "finish " the hides and get another $25 each.

Wow that's a great price.
I have 8 pelts in the freezer and have been waiting for warmer weather to get them out and put them on stretchers.

My dad snared another one a couple days ago and it has the best fur of all the ones we have got this year.
