I did a search but need a bit of advice. The Squirrel and I attempted trapping for a bit this winter and ended up with a couple dozen mink and marten. Where should we sell them? Should we box them up and ship them somewhere? Meet someone? I just don't want to ship them out and have someone tell me they're worth 10 bucks or something unless thats what they are actually worth. We ran 12 traps total, so it was pretty productive for our learning curve we thought. All the hides were stretched and pinned with guidance from an old local trapper and the skinning was done by a taxidermist so I think they are right.
We also crushed some beaver but we will be keeping them for ourselves, maybe hooping them for decorations. Got a couple grand daddys and some medium/smaller ones but left enough seed for next year when we get serious. I gotta say the beavers were the most fun to trap, after we dialed in our sets it was awesome.
