Took my first Coyote yesterday, nice blond pelt. Don't know what I want to do with it yet. May just get the pelt tanned. I'd like to see what some you have done with yours. Thanks

I swear this thing is gonna bite me every time I get near it.
I don't have room for a full body mount, hope to see more, thanks guys.
Brian thats the best Coyote mount I've ever seen.
I`ve got a few on my website..click on the link
Gaffer, that yotey looks to have some domestic dog in his bloodlines.
Very nice guys. Congrats on the song dog, GAFFER.
Here you go

Gaffer1, I didn't have room for a full coyote mount either...according to my wife. LOL. I still don't know where I'm going to put my otter.
I really like the look of those rock base mounts.If I get a coyote, he is getting "Put on a Pedestal"
Coyote makes some of the best, string silencers, cold weather hats, coat/hood lining, nice rugs or wall hangings. Just for some ideas of other uses.
Love the pedestal mounts. It may come down to the cost of my options.

Here's another that doesn't take up much room.
hey travis..i like yur work..especially the coyote on the rock howling...sweet!
Travis very fine work, and believe me I'm very picky. I really like the trio of predators its my favorite of all. Did you come up with that or did you borrow that idea. I only know a hand full of taxidermist that can pull off that natural a look on a bobcat or coyote. I see you really put a lot of effort into getting the correct facial expressions. I see so much junk out there its a pleasure to see some one who really knows what there doing. I am sending your link to a taxidermist friend of mine he might need some pointers. lol!
Thanks guys--Cats are my favorite no doubt. I pretty much specialized in small mammals from the start and just wouldn`t stop until they were correct..then I started competing and learned how to realy sharpen things up..it`s funny but it doesn`t take much more effort to do one correctly--just a little patience and the desire to make them look natural...I have done the trio many times..Had one customer want 5 yotes on one pedestal..turned out really cool. Not sure what triggered me to start doing them..could have been a picture of somebody elses work...can`t really recall..I used to sell all my cats on Ebay--some years i sold 40 to 50 cats on Ebay..shoot I made almost more doing that than working aircraft..Building me a new 30x50 shop right now(early retirement plan) so I can go full time somewhere down the line. To date i think I`ve mounted close to 500 bobcats in 7 years for people all over the US..that website has paid for itself ten fold...
picture not the best but the idea is that he is along a brushy fence line
