Trapping seasons coming-Lets TALK!!!!
top rat top 4.00 green

opossum 1.00 put up
yote top 22.00 avg 15.25
coon kicked my butt, but I knew it going in. good season now to see what my big lot of rats, mink and otter do at Auction.
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..
