ONCE AGAIN, some dealers send their junk fur to the auction, this accounts for low averages reported for some States. When dealer fur arrives who knows WHERE it originated from, other than where it was shipped from.

That is 100% correct Colorado imo has absolutely great track record,
This is a year you had better done some home work ahead of selling your fur.

Without a doubt Red! Colorado is a premier sale by all accounts I've heard, and from what I see from members on here.

I have no doubts that, prices paid reflected quality of fur and put-up. Who sent what, why??? I don't know. Just a spectator and a speculator. I would feel better knowing it was some dealer sending their junk in to dump off at a location away from their own. At least then it wasn't a trapper that had their hopes up. I'm hoping someone that was there will provide us a little insight as to what was actually there, and maybe why some prices were so low. No reason to get personal about it. Somebody sent in something of little to no value. Stuff like that shows up at most sales. Doesn't reflect the quality of the sale, just the quality of the fur offered.

The junk should not be averaged in with the marketable goods.How is a trapper to know where the market is at if sec 3 goods are mixed with normal marketable fur.

FWIW from my book 472 coyote lots offered 30 lots were $5 or less and yes I missed some of the lots selling.
most of those sellers don't know the difference between good and bad, but as they check in they see it. Some feel that they killed it and they are going to put it up.
On the other hand somewhere around 80 of those lots brought over $100

Boco, not going there.

Not that impressed with Wy coyote prices I need to step across my range fence to Colorado hope the cat prices were better but over all they don't seem that good I knew coon prices were in the tank. Well it is what it is time to calf and get ready for next year.

Home finally, and another one in the books.

I want to personally thank Todd for all he does. Ryan for keeping the books straight. Greg for taking the heat. Cody,Trenna,Jason and Pawnee who took time out of there schedules to come help on there own dime. You have no idea how much you helped. Bruce and Al for helping lot coyotes.

CTPHA Auction is and will always be a "what you see is what you get". No cooking the books to make it look better or worse. No use in even trying to explain things unless you were present to see. There will be happy faces and sad faces. Overall it was a great sale.

Long days with no breaks can wear on a person. Every single one of you performed at the professional level people come to respect. Thank you from me, you all make my jobs just a little bit easier.

We had a great time, its more fun than the circus, esp after 4-5 beers. My kid used to want to be a farmer, then a cowboy, now he wants to be Marty's gopher.

'Hey Caleb.......'

It is quite an experience, everybody needs to do it at least once.
