The NAFA pickup guy here picked up around 4,000 coyotes for the February sale this year. At a $100 average that's a lot of $$$$ in that trailer

If youre meeting him in Grayling, thats his very first stop on the trip, the truck should be empty when he arrives.

Robert, I was first in line a little before 9. The truck was more than half full when Ernie opened the back.

OK, gotchya. I meet him in Grayling so I'm always the first guy to toss bags in. Therefore they get squished and trampled more than everyone elses, I feel so special. LOL

I think the way to review this is to wait until the numbers are listed for the auction and then work backward. Are we looking at significantly more fur in total or just a different marketing strategy with similar numbers or even far fewer numbers. It could also demonstrate the significant reduction in local buyers (numbers) or local buyers willing to invest in lots of fur during these low margin times.

Well first off to clarify things this is the smallest truck I've seen Ernie bring in quite some time so "Too Full"" is all relative. This was like a small Budget Rental truck and I've seen him bring a truck close to the size of a tractor trailer back 5 years ago when fur was worth much more and THAT was too full, so he was stuffing bags in his cab.
