Had time while enjoying good food and fellowship at the Unique Cafe this morning. Sometimes a link to a newspaper article becomes a pain to retrieve and the ads drive one crazy. Thought it worth sharing.

Will be interesting reading the onslaught of letters to the editor this week. Should bring the antis out of their cages for awhile anyway.

Well done Rat



We were hauling 3 loads of Tabaco down there the other day so I just went across the road and talked to the people at Saga. Pretty much the same office staff and of coarse they didn't know anything about NAFA. But they did say they were sending everyone to FHA when asked about wild fur.
They said that Brian McMillan took an early retirement when NAFA closed the doors.

Great educational article hate to see the news about the industry struggling and NAFA going down. It is just an encouragement for the antis to strike hard they smell blood I will guarantee that.

"When he was a kid in Oconomowoc, trapping seemed like a romantic pursuit — and a way to make some cash, said Arnold Groehler, president of the Wisconsin Trappers Association.

A mink pelt in those days was worth about $20. Groehler, 62, said he and his friends would dab a little of the animal’s musk on themselves before heading to school, “so all the girls knew we were worth at least $20.”


Ain't that precious. Arnie, the Don Juan of the Oconomowoc school district back in the 60s.

Looks like some pretty good reporting.

Muskrat musk would be more “desirable “

But they always said mink smells like money!

Nice read thanks for sharing

Awesome link and pictures. Makes me kinda sad that a European auction house has taken over the facility.
