I think they decided not to skin any more. Somebody may have convinced them not to.

But usually when one guy shuts down, or outfit, another pops up and away you go. There's others around, but you want to check/ascertain that they can do the job. Ive seen some custom jobs that were nothing less than horrific, to such end that I felt obligated, as a fur auction receiving agent for NAFA, to point out to customers to stop using such services. HORRIFIC!!! like send the guy to Chinese prison for a week!!!!

OP, if you can track down Coy Coyote from stettler country, he might be able to point you in the right direction. Rumour is that he may be in semi retirement??? Seems like a lifer to me tho.

I try to keep tabs on custom skinners in the south to send guys to that want their fur put up.

About 3 years ago, some "higher authority" came to the local colony and relieved the boss of his duties. They got very strict and got everyone back to the "rules". My guy had to destroy his shack, get rid of his stuff, etc. No trapping, hunting, etc. Things are starting to relax a bit but I'm not sure how far he'd go. And now he wants to buy coyotes, not just skin them.

It sounds like an opportunity for an enterprising individual if there’s a niche in the area.

The hutts put up some nice fur. If I was a deer hunter with no interest in dealing with yotes I would sell them to them absolutely. If you are a trapper I wouldn't even entertain the thought. They can be a problem if you are trying to put up numbers and play by the rules anywhere close to a colony. Not being ignorant I'm sure certain canine guys know what I mean. It just brings out alot of dudes sipping beers and blasting yotes all winter long for a quick buck with no regard for permission or trappers etc. Certain areas are crawling with yotes my area is surrounded by big colonies and I hear they routinely ship 5 to 10 thousand dogs in a year. It screws with the market and affects the grade because as I said they put up nice fur I just wish I could get my skinning knife on a few more. Our area has nice fur but they are so scarce a good trapper would be hesitant to pursue them.
