    To you guys who hunt yotes, arenít they flea and tick infested? That alone would prevent me from playing that game. We have taken the odd one while pushing for jacks and one we got was virtually bald frommange from ribs back. Skin looked tanned.
    I 'm suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    Ive got a few now. Shot and trapped. I have not gotten one yet with mange, flees or ticks. My fox pelts have been peppered with tick holes. Its the deer hides that are bad. My biddies deer hide last year had almost 1000 ticks. When tanning the tick holes make thin spots and turn a shade of green on the white leather.

    Generally,with our crew, mangy or tick infested Coyotes get dragged off into deep bush and left for Mother Nature to look after. Most of the time,prime pelts are outnumbered by garbage pelts on average 10/1. Sarcoptic Mange mites are easily transferred to humans and household pets. Always wear gloves while handling carcasses whether you're going to keep them or not.

    Re: fleas and ticks. Surprisingly, I've never really had a coyote heavily infested in either ticks or fleas. I've trapped a lot of fox that were flea lousy, but I've found weasels and fisher to be the worse for fleas. I've found a few ticks on coyote but they were all American dog tick. I gave sarcoptic mange to my old lab once by transporting some lightly manged coyote in the back of the truck cap. The dog picked it up from the back of the truck. Not a problem now if your dog is on any of the flea meds as they usually all kill sarcoptes mites. Fox, coyote, fisher, red squirrel, and weasels - I put them into a big industrial garbage bag as soon as I get home. A few shots of pyrethrin (Raid) will kill any live fleas within 15 mins with the bag sealed. I rough skin coyote and freeze the pelt for a couple of weeks to kill any possible mange/follicle mites. Eastern coyote pelt sales are pretty select right now (60% at recent sale) . I wouldn't send in anything that's rubbed (past prime) or has mange spots. If you run hounds in Feb -March you might want to call Fur harvesters or NAFA and get the advice from the coyote grader. They might tell you to not bother sending in these rubbed pelts.

    I by no means have the experience some of you guys have. I have only shot four coyotes and three were incidental. All of the ones I got though were not flea or tick infested and had beautiful full pelts. I home tanned a couple of them.

    Made this one into a wall hanger

    This one made a very warm hat!
