Do some research on google and eBay and you will have lots of ideas to work with.

One problem is that it is a limited market. Sort of a niche market. And those that are well established in their niche market might be reluctant to provide information.


I used to have a real good market for beaver (fall beaver, not black). Sold 28 total with 12 bringing between $100 to $120. Word got out and never been the same. frown

I use to have one of those niche markets. This lady made small baby sized beaver blankets for all her soon to be mothers with new borns. $40.00 a hide and It didn't make any difference how prime they were. Then she got old and all her friends got old and no more babies.LOL

I have to admit in that market it probably did help to buff and shine them. I have been complimented a time or two on my put ups. I might be a little more anal than I have to be, but I am not super anal.

I still haven't gotten a black one. I read something about person trapping a white 1. White must be REALLY rare.

Caught 5 at a spot earlier, 1 was black as can be the rest were all Brown. I had no idea they were something special. My first beaver put up was the black one and it turned out bad, terrible job. Now the little one turned out much better and the other 3 will be doing this weekend.
Black and Brown's from the same family?[Linked Image]
