I am usually way too far on foot to carry a coyote. These low altitute coyotes aren't worth enough to skin. Their fur looks good but their skin is thin compared to a high country coyote that really primes up. I have never even heard of a fur buyer in these parts anyhow because trapping is outlawed. I never consider it a waste because everything in nature is recycled and the landowners are happy to see em dead. During the 80's, I skinned enough varmints to last me several lifetimes and I don't miss it. Occassionally, I will skin an extra nice bobcat just to have it tanned......then somehow my ex always gets it from me. I don't know of any living women on earth that has killed more bobcats than my ex.....I worked the red light and she shot em between the eyes. I will be calling with her in Texas during March as we are still soul mates and best friends. I carry a small tripod (less than $5 at Walmart). I stack my camera bag on top of my Foxpro bag and let the tripod legs straddled the camera bag....works good when you get everything balanced and gets the camera about 15 inches off the ground. I have also used a fiberglass arrow shaft with a bolt expoxied in one end and nail in the other end......works real good and gets the camera about 28 inches off the ground.
Bill, I am curious as to what you do with all the coyotes you kill. Do you skin them or leave them lay? Or something else? Nice story and good pics. Do you carry a small tripod for your camera?
