In eastern WA in the late '70s I caught a gorgeous buck brookie in spawning colors in a 110, in a drainage ditch beside a small gravel road, a long, long way from the nearest "trout" water.

Great picture!

Loved the prices in the late '70s! Averaged almost $400 per coyote properly washed, fluffed and stretched!

This thread is young but already epic!

Great pics guys!

Does anyone remember when the fur prices dropped out? I picked up a huge road kill coon in the mid 80's that I sold for $65.00 which was kind of unheard of at the time.

I bet a coyote thought twice before tangling with him!

Great pics.

It would be nice to see fur prices take a big jump.

Ive been finishing up getting all my stuff ready the last few days. I usually don't lay steel till about mid December and Im getting a bit restless.

I am not old enough to have real old pictures but getting old enough to say things like, when I was younger I used to do dumb things like try to fill my 3/4 ton truck with beavers...

Not interested in that nonsense anymore smile

These days if I can catch a few critters with my kids along life is good.
