Supply vs Demand could be the reason. Tax and tarrifs are not helpful either. Not sure if public is ready for more fur in clothing. I know my daughter will not wear fur, yet has no problem with leather. Leather is a byproduct but fur isn't. Her reasoning.

Thank you for your time to explain. Iím mainly a coon trapper with mix of few other species. I havenít trapped coon for the last 3 seasons. Guess Iíll wait for a couple more.

In that line of thinking fur is a byproduct of wildlife management including endangered species protection, habitat protection, public safety, disease control, nuisance control and food.

I had headbands and earmuffs made out of mink for my daughters and daughters in law as well as my grandchildren. If your going to talk the talk you have to walk the walk. If every trapper in the US used up a dozen pelts there would be a half a million less to market.

Do you think the day will come where there is no fur market ? When our children and grandchildren will have no reason to trap because fur is worthless either tanned for wall hangers/novelty or not used in any garments ? No one would pay a dime for any fur. Seems we are one generation away from that.

kyron4, if we're that detached we will probably have bigger problems than the fur market.

Whole family wears all kinds of fur along with a lot of other people here.
If you spend any time outdoors in the cold weather,all you have to do is wear fur once and you wont want anything else.
People will always wear fur here.
See lots of fur on people in the cities too,even when the weather is not too cold.More of a fashon thing there as opposed to utility.
I have a hard time keeping up on orders for fur articles.Getting a lot of orders lately for fur ruffs on hoods(cut off the fake fur and put wolf fur on).

Have to wear wolf mitts in the cold part of winter up here. Lots of fur boots (mukluks), hats, hood ruffs,etc. lots of fur getting used in the most practical way up here.

I have beaver mitts, beaver hat, otter facemask, and a beautiful king-size beaver bedspread. Had Marten baby booties made for my granddaughter, and mad_mike's daughter. Those are just some of the articles.


Made it almost 3 years without censor!

Has been for at least 25 years,hard to keep up.
Customers know custom made is higher quality than mass production.

trappers shipping animals instead of selectively releasing and only keeping saleable pelts is part of it as well
