Coyote Fur in The Fly Tying Bench Posted October 16, 2006 · Report reply I would mostly be shaving the thing. Never had any experience with tanning hides,cept when my Dad caught me swearin when I was 8. If anyone knows how to tan it I would appreciate the info. I'm sure my in-laws wouldn't mind shooting another one. All the coyote's do around here is kill deer and domestic sotck.
