I just skinned my first coyote Saturday and it had such an awful smell to it. I've done a couple of smaller mammals and deer and elk before, but nothing quite as rancid as this was. He was leaking some kind of clear liquid when I hung him upside down. My question is do coyotes always smell this bad, or did i just get a bad specimen?

If they really stink, its really bad.
Stuff a paper towel in the anus, it will stop a large part of the odiferous smells. Scent glands and exhaust gases.
coyotes always have a bad smell. just remember to use rubber gloves and a dust mask...will help keep the smell off of ya. Also if mounting, might want to soak in some odor out or somthing before and after fleashing.
Yep them dogs always stink!
