Trapping seasons coming-Lets TALK!!!!
Do you have any info on SE Wisconsin fur buyers? Years ago I was trapping raccoons, was told to just freeze them whole, and a guy would come to Jays Sports and buy them. I've been trapping some muskrats lately and freezing them. Is anybody buying them, what are they maybe $2-3 each? Probably not worth it, I'll probably just practice tanning them myself. I've already made a pair of mittens, just without thumbs! If I were to sell them, is there something I should do to them besides freeze them?
Have not sold anything so can’t say what the price of a red fox might bring. Pricing is so subjective too: was it shot badly or trapped, how is the put up, nice colors or pee stained. May want to consider harvesting it and having a hat made out of it.
I'm not hardcore but got 2 coons and 1 red fox so far. Tried for 2 days, just set 3 traps. May try a new area this weekend to see if I can get a yote or two. Still a rookie though and learning.
That was up in Price County. We had snow and I saw the fox tracks when checking, was hoping he found his way to my set.
