Dang, you've got to tan them and go to all that trouble to get $60 !! That's amazing.
When I was trapping a good western 'yote pelt would bring nearly that much, fresh skinned. I need to dig out a couple of my old fur sale sheets, that I saved, and post them here. It would shock many, I'll bet, what the hides would bring without even skinning them ........... selling the whole frozen carcass, hide on.
Edited to add - I looked at some of the old fur price sheets last night and I sold large, well colored bobcats for as much as $45 in '84, unskinned. The buyers didn't want us skinning them because they wanted it done their particular way. $45 in 1984 is over $125 today, adjusted for inflation. That particular season I sold $2037 in fur, which would adjust now to $5808. Those fur sales were a welcome addition to the family household funds in lean farming years.
