I've heard that if you take a coyote's jaw and the whole pelt the DWR will just clip one ear leaving the option to sell the pelt as well as get the bounty. Has anybody here tried that before? If so I'm interested in knowing if there are some check-in locations that are known for being friendly to keeping the pelt vs. them cutting the whole ear off.

They don't take the whole ears off, they just clip a little piece, I'm not even sure if they remove any ear material, but they do cut both of them which is one of their requirements and they don't take the lower jaw, they just remove a tooth from it, but they do require you take the lower jaw in and not just a tooth. I take em whole heads because I don't like skinning them and I leave em there with them, but I don't think they'd care much if you took the pelt. You may be better off calling them at 801-450-3656 to get it straight from the horse's mouth rather than second hand info from a forum.


One thing to note: Make sure you have a GPS with you when you kill a yote because if you don't have the exact latitude/longitude, you aren't getting paid.

Thanks for the phone number. I'm trying to avoid keeping a whole head in my freezer. Not much room and my wife would likely make me sleep outside...

Sign up for it, THEN kill coyotes for the bounty...

There has been so much bad information that has been passed around, its like Gun Show or Gun Counter Mythology.

I'm all registered, just trying to learn as much as possible so I can have a successful season. Does anybody have a buyer of pelts they like to use? I figure most people just leave them there but if there are any suggestions I'd appreciate it.

Thanks for the information so far.

Talk to some of the meat processors.

I would be interested in two salted hides if you are selling them.

I've called them 3 separate times. Once to kind of get the rundown on whats legal for hunting at night after moving here and then twice to ask about what they need for the bounty.

I've signed up online, have my reg number and was told once they just want the ears. Then the second time (after someone told me that wasn't true) I was told just the jaw.

So from this thread, just bring the head with the filled out form and I'm GTG?

I was out west of Nephi coyote hunting with no luck, but that's hunting. Has any one tried hunting east of emigration canyon? During the archery hunt, the coyotes in the Wasatch were plentiful. I ran across several to my surprise in the afternoon. I know it's not a rifle area but I would like the fawns to survive as best they can. I'm not looking to collect on a bounty or keep the hides. Just looking for some winter exercise and predator control.

If one told you ears and the other told you jaw, then just take both the ears and the jaw, or if you're lazy, take the whole head. Don't take the whole body though, they won't accept it.


As for night hunting, you need to call the local sheriffs to ask about it. This is a gray area because the state laws only mention spotlighting and those who use NV/Thermal optics are the ones in the gray area because they aren't using lights. If you're spot lighting, you need a permit in Iron county and for other counties it's up to the sheriff unless you can find it specifically listed in the law books somewhere.

do not salt them! it will make the hair slip. stretch and dry them. i.have always done this and have several nice pelts hanging in my man cave. after they've been tanned they will.last a lifetime.

What do you use to stretch them?
