Fleshed this coyote yesterday and the leather is much darker than I've ever seen. Thoughts??

Yes. I could only trap the first 4 weeks of season. Didn't have any trouble with the coon I kept during that time.

If it was an early season dog, you’re seeing blue leather. It is really common with earlier coon....the leather hasn’t thickened and you’re looking at the roots of the hair. At least that’s always been my understanding of blue leather.

Late litter pup + caught early in season = blue leather (fur industry trade name for early caught fur)
