coyotes in a range of qualities—from reject grade up to the best
quality, large, eastern, heavy skins available. The Best Grade
skins are fashion quality skins. The Trading Post skins are
suitable for hanging on a cabin wall or better quality craft use.
They are a middle-of-the-road
coyote skin with good heads, good bodies, and good
tails. They are not fashion quality skins, nor are they junk. The
Craft Grade skins are generally good for cutting up or for use in
projects that do not require a perfect skin. They have weak hair. The Reject Grade
have extensive rips, tears, and may be missing the head and tail.
The skins come cased, but have no lower jaw and are not
suitable for taxidermy.
The skins range in length from around 53 - 62"
when measured from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail. When they
are measured from the tip of the nose to the base of the tail, they range
from 39 - 45". The shoulder widths fall between
5 - 6.5", waists range from 7 - 9.5", and hips, from
13 - 15". They are about 7" wide.
Hair length is approximately 2.5" long. If you lay the skin flat and stick a ruler in it, the pile
is about 0.5" high. A skin weighs approximately 1 lb 10 oz (0.733 kg).
The mounted coyote skins are mounted on a black felt backing and are good as rugs.
