    Has anyone sold any furs this year? If so, what are the prices looking like?

    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.

    Rats, low.

    $15 for a big prime one. Certainly not worth the effort.

    For the pain the are to skin and finish I say $30 per beaver isn’t worth the effort 😆

    Good year to trap for fun, and experiment with some stuff.

    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.

    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.

    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.
