    Default FHA sale

    Did anyone have any marten or other fur on the FHA sale yesterday? If so how did it do I don't have an account with them so can't see how bad it really was

    So for those out there wondering how prices are they continue to decline it was a real ugly sale Lynx and otter were mainly unsold averages for marten were $59, Mink $11 Beaver $13!! and fox $23 coyote were ok with nice silky westerns at $109 but AK coyotes are a long ways from that with ours having a lot of woolly underfur and much shorter guard hairs then the ones in the NW.states. Really makes hard on a guy whos main income comes form trapping sure am glad we sew or I'd be looking for a full time job may still have to find a summer gig we will see

    Well thats why I try to sell everything world of mouth, taxi.net and the Rondy auction. Sold 3 marten this morning in the round for $125.00ea to a taxidermist down south. Sold otters for $60 and $80 and lowest I received for my lynx this year was $125.00. But I also don't trap big #'s, just big mix bags and quality fur. Don't do it to MAKE money. Just breaking even is nice, lol.
