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.

Hey all - wondering where to get hides tanned to make things like mittens/gloves/hats, etc.? I'm new to trapping, and thought it'd be enjoyable to have someone tan some of the coon/fox furs that I've taken this year. I'm just fleshing out the fur, and freezing them. I've found a few places in IA/MN that I could ship them to, but it seems like they won't take green fur. I travel from the fox valley to Milwaukee area regularly for work. Any ideas?

Appreciate the consideration. Good luck.

so how is everyones second season starting out. mine is slow with the weather. rats are averaging 2.50 and coon if you can find the bigger size are going for 6-10 green. have yet to find a beaver that wants to wear a 330. all in good time. as far as trapping rabbit, I don't have to answer for you. that might be a gray area in our state. hope all have full traps in the future

Question guys is it legal to snare or trap (110 conabear) rabbits on public land? Snares kinda confuse me cause rules state snare must be half underwater. Anyway my wife loves to trap rabbits but I don't know if it's legal and after reading rules I'm more confused. Thanks fellas
