    That chart shows the average prices, but doesn't tell you about the stock that wasn't sold at any price.

    No, what I mean is that in 1970 if you got $200.00 CAD for a coyote pelt, according to a Canadian inflation calculator, it would be worth $1,347.78 CAD today in equivalent buying power. The calculator is using statistics of inflation, dollar buying power, minimum & average wages and average product costs to figure this out.

    Or, in other words, if Coyote pelts were sold at $200 in 1970 and retained that value today, you could trade one for a decent Leupold scope today.

    I just don't know what the peak historical coyote pelt value has been to use the calculator on that amount.

    I don't take stock in that kind of rithmatic.

    Fact check it with the popular economic comparisons, 1lb bacon and 1 Big Mac. It’ll help filter out some of the hyperbole

    Fur prices today are brutal. Spent quite a bit of time in my youth with the dying rabbit squealer in white painter coveralls and a .22 Hornet Brno, made some decent mad money for a kid.
    These ass sucking prices and the Wife and me attended a trade convention in downtown Edmonton and went to the HBC furrier in the flagship location, 11K for a full length beaver pelt coat ;-) Really! Fu*K Your Hat!
