you could add one of these, they are pretty lightweight and do protect your shotgun.

Good point about damaging your gun however I use the handlebar holders for my high power rifle and a crossbow. No damage yet. Don't like a half case with some of the gun sticking out. To me it is the same a having no protection. Oskar, I've seen and used that type of case on an ATV but its overkill for a pedal bike. Anyone know of a plastic case designed for just a shotgun that is relatively sleek.

I think you run the risk of having either coyote get caught up in the back wheel and the one coyote getting singed from the exhaust.

I only pack them like that to the nearest sign post or windmill to skin them on, no trees tall enough. You can hold your hand in front of the exhaust without getting burned , barely hot enough to warm your hands on a cold day.

What do good western coyote pelts bring nowadays, Oskar? Not a trick question. I trapped for years, when fur prices were lucrative, back in the late 70s and early 80s, and have always had an interest in what the markets have been since.

I'd post a photo or two of my bike, but I'm about done with photo posting here. I've run through Photobucket, Hunt101, and jpegbox.com which all have faded away. Wish this site allowed direct posting without a hosting intermediary. I have a 90's era Cannondale hardtail mountain bike rigged with gun holder on handlebars and a plastic milk crate on the cargo carrier. The Cannondale replaced my old steel-framed Schwinn that I had been using since the 70's. I'm still healthy and fit enough to pedal without electric motor assist. When hunting with a red dot on my shotgun, I prefer to sling it over my back rather than rely on the handlebar holders as my bike has no shocks and I'm concerned about losing zero due to hard jarring along the trails I hunt. Gil
PS. Stan just pm'd that Jpgbox is working again. Here's a photo of me and the bike with the dog which is hell to get to sit still.

I have them tanned and sell them for wall hangings, use them for decoration and make things from them when prices are low. My wife wants a throw for the couch. And I want to sew a vest this winter. I have thirteen in the freezer right now, you get a break at the tannery with lots of 20.

I put Mr Tuffy strips in my mtb bike tires

I sell them for garment tanned wall hangings for $60.00. Fur sale prices are in the dumps now, in the past anywhere from $10.-$100

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.
