It appears that coyotes are 30% higher in price than last year at this sale. With the no bid coyotes and the really bad junk out the rest averaged $128.57 sounds like a $200 basis to me. Last years average for the same sale was $99.22, times 1.3 equals $128.98. That's pretty close to 30% higher than last year, same time, same sale. Without NAFA to send junk coyotes to this year they will be a tough sell.

Coon were cheap $5-11 It looks like there were 106 finished coon. Red fox a couple lots went for $20, but most in the 10-15 range.

I set for coon this fall but just for personal use, hard to sell 4 & 5 X coon for 10 bucks.

Yep. I guess if I want to get my coon itch scratched and South Dakota has its nest predator bounty again this spring, I can get my $10 ave from the state, take the head for finished skulls and maybe cape a few nice ones for taxi mounts and get back north of $12, that seemingly "magic" new threshold for coon utopia. Don't even need a skinning machine...

Great sale,yes COYOTESW ARE KING..... coons not so much.I know I did better this year on coyotes last year 1st sale at Nafa 71.80 after commission this year I sold to Colt Furs and averaged 92,ND coyotes are better than our's.The coyotes here have been getting better every year,thanks to the western coyote coming further east and north thank you ND and Canada.Colt Fur's will do well with my coyote's I was very happy with there price they offered they,any fur buyer needs to cover there gas expense etc.Here what a $92 avg northern Mn coyotes look like,heavies but a darker color thans those AWESOME west western coyotes.

I didn’t see him. I miss his posts too, he’s a good snare man.

I can see the top lot in the first picture ND FTA posted. But I know about where they were. Its not like you are going to look at a picture of a pile of coyotes and see the difference in why one lot went higher than the other unless it is the top lot and bottom lot.
JMF was not at the sale. He is not snaring much if any this year.

The top lot pictures posted last year were taken before the sale and submitted by the trapper after. With only a handful of guys working the sale, there was no time to take pictures when it was over. I helped unload, count and register the lot of 27 that sold for $190. They were my guess/pick for top lot. Well furred, well handled, beautiful coyotes. Very happy for the member who brought them. Just got the final numbers emailed to me. Here they are.

Was a very good sale! If you had well handled, prime coyotes you were paid very well for them. Thanks to all the trapper, hunters, and buyers for showing up!
