Yup, and it's AR. Matter of fact this is the warmestwinter we have had in years. It is 53 right now. Don't let that fool you though, a week ago it was 13.

I sold my October coon for $18.74 average, in the grease.

Early greys averaged $21

Early coyotes $24

Holding everything else, till I get the fur worked. WTA

Contrary to popular belief, temperature does not affect the coat primeness. that's why if you have an unseasonably warm winter in the north, the animals don't all shed it off. It stays. The coat primeness actually comes from length of daylight.

Good deal then, cuz it's warming up, not cooling down. I did see a coyote yesterday though that Looks like one of ya'lls up there with a thick coat and all but all I had was a bow so I couldn't get a shot at it.
