As of right now now we have two auctions scheduled. 15-16 January and 19-20 March. Between now and then that may change, but we have the building reserved in Bismarck. We are trying to get any one and everyone that plans on attending to contact the board before driving to Bismarck with fur, to make sure it is still a go. At this point it is a SWAG on what the sale numbers and prices will be. But is pretty safe to say it was the coyote sale of the year last year. Off the top of my head $130 average on 1300 coyotes and $205 average on 60 for the top lot. If you have any questions fire away.

The fur is sold in trapper lots. The top lot winner brought in 60 coyotes, and they averaged $205.

I would guess some of the route buyers will be backing out this year. It will be a good chance to sell your fur and support the NDFTA.

If you have some fur to sell and get the chance, plain on showing up. There were a fair number of guys that wished they would have had all their fur on the January sale. You can put a asking price on it, so there is no reason to leave it home.

Were the antlers sheds or skulls? Is there a decent buyer market attending for nice colored shed antlers? In your opinion will the traveling fur buyers offering prices be reflected in this sale? I keep hearing people at the cafe saying they sold $15 and 20 ND coyotes this year

Coyotes are cheaper no doubt, but selling at a sale where the buyers have competition is a whole different story than selling them on your tailgate. Chances are if you put your fur on the sale you wont be disappointed.

The antler was one shed it seems like. I am sure there are a lot of buyers that will pay $15-$20 for coyotes if you will sell them. I would guess they were on the round and had a big hole blown in them to start. There was just a post that coyotes in Canada are selling well. I copied and pasted this.

Converted to American dollars

2019 prices on coyotes

$130.25
$114.93
$99.61
$76.62
$38.31

This year

$115.46
$100.06
And so on
Early, pups and poor quality docked heavy
Castor is $76.97 a pound dried with no shells

Considering the state everything is in the prices aren't that bad. The prices are on western heavies but it gives you a little bit of an idea where the markets at.

Good luck to everyone trapping

Please feel free to post any prices you have heard,got or seen this year on any animal
