Since when do they grade coon by the quality of the belly fur?

Looks like rats aren't doing to bad.

I've wondered that for a couple of years , ever since he started showing his fur buying videos. "This one has a weak belly." Heck they all have a weak belly. Just another way to knock it down a grade. But I guess we should be happy he's buying coon some buyers aren't even buying the ones with a "good belly", what ever that is.

I wouldn't kill and skin a coon for those prices. But if your happy with what coon or any other critter is putting in your pocket than have at it.

Ok, I'll watch later, but what's the average in the deals for coon, about an Abe or lower...?

The belly thing is easy to understand, if the belly fur is thick and long chances are the coon is primed up nicely.

What mink 99 said is correct. Look at base of belly down inside of back legs and you have a good idea of how prime real quick.

He didn't like those snared coon. I didn't watch long enough to see if he got in any snared beaver to comment on

That 1st guy turned down $40 for that 1 coyote, wow.

I woulda thought deer hides are worth more than $2. I get $5 for mine at Theisen's Home Farm Auto, but it's in the form of a gift card.

I would think It's just as easy to look at the flanks.

So ADC and those that snare coon Is a snare mark really that bad?

I would guess his beaver prices will not matter if snared or not, as long as the fur is clean.

Mainly going to the hatter market, which uses the under fur after being removed from the leather. So a snare mark doesn't make a difference.

I couldnt believe that one guy pulled his handful of coyotes back. The one was definitely ugly and low value other was a $40 which hey I'd would take for our dirty reds around here.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

I wonder what that guy on here from New Jersey has to say about getting down graded for snared coons.

Do they really do much more damage than a conibear?

I think when he called it ugly the old man took it wrong. Ain't no fault of the trapper when you catch an ugly critter.

Depends.When an animal is dispatched quickly by the snare(set lethal) -no.
Animals alive in a snare(or bodygrip) will damage themselves.

When body snared, which is common on Coons and Beaver the guard hair gets stuck in cable during struggle and is usually removed with the snare. That doen't happen with the solid bar on a body grip. You'll see the body grip line on the leather but that doesn't cause it to be discounted.
