Re: More than one way to skin a coyote.
Coyotes her in NC don't get prime like in the northern parts of the country. NC allows for the sale of live coyotes to the fox pens. Coyotes are just like criminals and the revolving door of justice. Catch them (live), sell them (live), they go to the fox pen, they escape and we catch them, sell them all over again. No skinning involved. Live coyotes are bringing $100.00-$135.00.
Not much market for shot coyotes here. I have spent thousands of dollars on callers, rifles, scopes, camo, leases and coyotes shot are few and far between. If I can catch 25-40 coyotes live it will do two things help my deer and turkey's, and pay for my hunting lease, seed, fertilizer and fuel.
