Jesse, What was the average on rats? I'm assuming they were put up.

Also, any idea on what good, big, put up beaver were going for?

No offense to anyone that's sold, but these prices are terrible.

I have a large # of rats put up and I'm starting to clean the beavers out of the freezers. Rats might go back in the freezer but I have to dump the beavers when I finish putting them up.

H&H,

No, that was all green. The rats were going for about a buck more a piece if they were put up. And given the latest "Breaking News" on the China economy situation, I wouldn't hold your breath on any kind of significant rebound anytime in the near future. Very possible we'll be looking at these types of prices for the next couple seasons.

On a positive note, sure it nice to have the woods/streams/ponds to yourself!

thanks I am going to sell some green and some up. I have a few rats what had wounds that I am not sending out so I will give them away. got a small beaver up and a few mink. I am hoping my rats I send out will do good to ok. I'm about to hang it up for the year, maybe a few yotes shooting and late season beaver. but after get my butt kicked and having three straight days of pull outs, I think my swivels are freezing and they are getting the upper hand on me. I will sell next fri by Columbus gas station at 11 see you all there.

I averaged $6.70 on coon, and only $4 on beaver. I had only $1.50 for most rats, and $2 for a few others.

Was that fur put up?

Doesn't matter...that's freakin' terrible! Puke

part-timer,

I sold to Groenwoeld early last month. Sold coon, beaver, and rats mainly. I averaged $6.70 on coon, and only $4 on beaver. I had only $1.50 for most rats, and $2 for a few others. So I got about what I expected on coon, but rat and beaver are very slow yet. Fisher and Otter were going anywhere from $35-$50. Hope this helps.

We still have fur at the auction from 2013 season from FHA..

The reason that there are very few classes this time of year is that they are out trapping. It is very difficult to work, run a trapline and teach a class. The DNR does not schedule the classes, the Wisconsin Trapper's Association schedules, orginizes and teaches the classes. They do all of that for no pay, as they are volunteers. The problems occur more in late summer, when the tags come out and everyone is looking for a class. The price of fur is very low. Most trappers trap for reasons other than money. It is an activity that they love doing. As late as it is, are you looking for a class for next year? Spring time is when the schedule will start to come up on the DNRs web site. I think it would be a good idea to get the class done in the spring/summer when there are many to choose from. It must be difficult to get a class put together when fall is near and they are getting ready to trap. The online class is an option and the correspondence course is another.

I am trapping some problem beaver on my land and was wondering if anyone had an idea of a price for prime beaver. Just wondering if it will be worth putting them up or if I should just sell them green. Usually ship to NAFA.
