Trapping seasons coming-Lets TALK!!!!
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.
Coon $2.00 top was $6.00
Female fisher Top Was $35.00
Big beaver rough skinned $11.00 tops
Deer hides Tops $4.00
Mink stretched $9.00 tops
Sold to Groenewold fur today in dells 1/8/16
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!
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..
