    Default State Hide Auction at Fur Rondy

    Any intel on why the annual state "Hide and Horns" auction of confiscated items was cancelled at Fur Rondy this year? The AK Trappers Assn guys I talked to today at their fur auction said, "politics." Anyone have more details?

    thanks

    The state puts a bid out every five years for someone to conduct the auction, and this year was to be the first of a new contract. The state had selected a winning bidder, but a losing bidder contested and then filed a lawsuit reguarding the selection. The state auction in Fairbanks will be on March 15th I believe.
