Now put it into context Dave, last year, LRD Dec 21, this year LRD Jan 8... not quite an apples to apples comparison. But there are more coyotes this year than last. Sure have been coming in easy up until now.

I agree Marty. Not a comparison, just an observation. The first auction is about the halfway point so if you double the first auction amount, it's almost exactly the same amount as in last year's two auctions. It's just an observation but it makes me think of a few different things. Number 1 is that with twice as many coyotes in the first auction I hope that coyote buyers have at least twice as much money to spend as last year......lol. I just thought that it was an interesting observation.

Yes, all factors play into the end result of course. One guy is telling me that three major EU fur designers have dropped fur due to AR pressures. We all have heard about Gucci dropping fur from their line. Guy claimed that without their pressure in the auction ring, it will be very different bidding on the high end western heavy coyotes. I do hope he is wrong. At least the top guy that always buys the top lot is still in the game and he seems to bid as high as he has to. Hopefully there are enough high end bidders this year to keep pushing him.

Default What if

Can you imagine what would happen if all coyoty hunting was banned.With a 5 year average of 37,000 being harvested in alberta alone.The parks ,golf courses,urban areas would be over run.The coyoty is unique,a survivor,a very renewable resourse.The average protester,has no idea,dealing with emotion not reality.As there "say" grows it maybe only a matter of time before that reality comes home to haunt them.

Good example was recent Homestead show where Alaska family helps people develop their struggling Homestead. A Arizona family had coyotes taking their chickens, goats right beside their home almost every night, totally out of control. Free range cattle would break their fences so coyotes came right into their pens.

Dave to put NAFA sales into perspective, some sales have over 5 million pelts offered, however only about 1 million are wild fur and coyotes were 83,947.
