Im working you NV guys,LOL
The interest is high on coyotes. Word has it that the harvest is way off. Chit chat around the west is the early nice weather, and then instant winter has put the damper on some of big producer areas of coyotes. With this week being probably the end for coyotes in most areas, although some places will carry on for a couple more weeks, buyers will be scrambling to put together a collection.
What has been told to me, via buyers, is that the CO sale is primed to have the perfect timing again. FHA received very few coyotes, NAFA coyote sale will be spring, and most western auctions will not have enough for a coyote specific sale. Colorado has agreed to participate with a end user with there point of origin requests, and there legally harvested requests as well. What that means to trappers and fur harvesters is that CO auction will be attended by that end user.
My selling point to you guys is this. Everyone is looking for that select heavy 1-2 coyote, there is not many of them out there. When that item is bought up, the top end of the semi's looks pretty good, and so on. There is enough knockoffs of the top parka company now, that with a knockoff it comes with a lower grade of fur. The perfect storm is in place, how it will play out is the big question.
If you guys could pool your shipments or even some how leap frog them to CO I think it is a good time. Let me know, Colorado is certainly interested in your coyotes this year.
