Yeah kinda like this Baron...although they're not 'yotes it's the same.....you're going to have to improvise though....I'm pretty sure your thumbs are going to work waaaaaay better than dew claws....hope this helps.....and good luck , let us know how you make out.

I saw a great one of a yote on his back legs like he was leaping catching a flushing pheasant, don't have a pick though.

LOL! The Cheech voice cracks me up. Read this in a Cheech voice... "no, c'mon man... I'm trying to be serious man". :rof:

I found some great pics on the web. Some are small, but what do you guys think of these mount poses? I kinda like #1 and #7 because they remind me of how my coyote was standing when I shot her. I like them all though. Help me choose.:TT:

Or, there's the shoulder mounts. I really like these and I'm sure it would be a lot cheaper than a full mount. I'm sure when I price things out it will help me decide.:rf: If I went shoulder mount, I'd probably go with #1. What do y'all think?:TT:

I got the shoulder mount #3 being done right now. I should get it back soon I will post it up. I looked at doing a FB mount but HOLY crap! 450 bucks for a coyote! Probably would have done it but killed a bobcat the same day and it is a FB mount so ran outta funds.

I would go with #3 Or # #6 Number 6 would be great when the company comes over. Could you see their faces:up: :up: When its time for the little one to take a nap that would be a great place

What about one humped up with a smile on his face or scooting across the floor like he's got worms. :TT:

Yah, brilliant, simply brilliant idea!! No need to bother with some fancy schmantzy mount stand, just use some shag carpet.... heck don't even waste money deodorizing the stinky bugger -- keep it real!! Whadaya think, TBOB?? :VC:

OK... called my taxi-man of choice today... $725 + GST = $760 for a full body mount.:OM: $210 for a head/shoulder, which is better but I'd like to save the whole hide. So, I am thinking pay a pro to case skin and tan it, but he doesn't offer that service anymore 'cuz he's too busy... dooh! Got a line on another guy but he's two hours north, so I'm gonna look for a more local guy to skin/tan and see what that would be. I'm hoping no more than $100.

(I know I could take a crack at skinning myself, but I just do not have any time now this week or likely on the weekend. Even if I did, I have no idea how to deal with the head/ears and tail. Besides, if I do get any time, I'd rather spend it shooting more or relaxing with my family, rather than peeling a stinky dog!:MS: )

........I know I could take a crack at skinning myself....... Baron, that is a really painful process, suggest starting with whiskey (lots of it!!!):VC: :OM:

OK, despite all the torment, I think you are on the right track... a nice cased and tanned hide hanging from the nose (the coyote's nose, I mean) makes a pretty classy wall hanging IMO.

Baron, skinning a fox is easy but a coyote can be a pain in the a$$ especially after its cold. Best to skin a coyote ASAP after the kill!

Hey Rob did you contact Darcy for a leg up on skinning it out? He seemed like he would like to help us out.

Glad to see one of us has broken the slump! I like the .222 mag nice gun.

Barron here's the way I did mine so it would not take up much room. I can get a full body mount starting at $335.00 dollars. For a open mouth they are a bit more around $400.00.

Baron, have a fur guy or taxidermist case skin it for you and then most taxidermists should be set up with commercial tanneries that can do the tanning. It will come back all soft and fluffy. I have several like this. They look great hung by their nose, or put a bunch together on the same nail. Mix in a fox or big coon and the hanging bundle looks cool!

Hey Barry... yeah, I was gonna try calling Darcy. Was going to do that today, but I didn't even have time to make a phone call. Work sucks.

That mount kind of looks like a yellow lab hanging around Flocknockers.
