Has anyone sold any furs this year? If so, what are the prices looking like?medicdanoParticipantNovember 24, 2017 at 2:30 pmPost count: 4987
Prime coons 1x and up will be marketable with tops of $5-6 (4x, Grade I/II). Most coons will be worth less than $3.
Fox $15 tops.
Coyote is best market this year with $15-25 averages.
Mink, no market.

Thanks Medicdano. That helps. Anybody know what Beaver is selling for?medicdanoParticipantNovember 25, 2017 at 7:19 pmPost count: 4987
$15 for a big prime one. Certainly not worth the effort.speng5ParticipantNovember 25, 2017 at 10:32 pmPost count: 2928

For the pain the are to skin and finish I say $30 per beaver isn’t worth the effort 😆Brad PhillipsParticipantNovember 26, 2017 at 10:32 pmPost count: 3188
Good year to trap for fun, and experiment with some stuff.wallydiverParticipantNovember 27, 2017 at 4:27 amPost count: 384
Trapping never really feels like a effort , till its time to skin the coyote’s.
would still be pinching toes, even with a zero fur market.sandmanParticipantNovember 28, 2017 at 12:08 amPost count: 2632
I have had my NWCO license for the last 12 years but seldom do any nuisance trapping anymore (95% bat proofing these days). Seems to me with current prices, lots of animals, it might not be a bad idea to get back into the trapping end of it more in the future, just a thought.OldbearParticipantNovember 28, 2017 at 12:54 amPost count: 2794
I have enjoyed it for many years and have a lifetime license as well as the hunting & fishing. If you have to drive much their’s no money in it at all but the anticipation of checking that next set is well worth it. Guess it brings me back to my youth as a young Northern Iowa boy. I’ll be out tomorrow morning checking some snares for beaver but instead of walking I’ll be riding my atv.
