bucksnbears No home made beer at the sale, I think its in the association bylaws. I did have a batch of homemade Irish cream along last year. Nd native address is 3805 E Bismarck Expressway. It is just east of the ND Game and Fish building across the road. Just south of 5th Ave NE. Steven 49er Good to hear Dusty is going to make it. If you talk to in between tell him Leo, the beer drinking cowboy has not been to any sales, but maybe this year.

See you there. Don't be scared to ask if we need any help. It goes a lot easier on everyone if everyone pitches in. After all the sale is put on by the association, for the association, not by the board.

I would bet the average was around 65 dollars a coyote. Quite a few no sales on some large lots that were around 50 to 75 dollars. Was some real nice looking coyote lots and there just wasn't any motivation to purchase them. After a few large lot no sales things picked up in the middle to around 75 dollar average, but by the end it fell off pretty quick. Must have figured they had bought enough.

My other guesses are
Fox 10
Coon 6ish?
Rats $3
Badger - $15

I quit keeping track of prices at lot 80 and there was 120 some, which were all mainly coyote.

The grade was very hard and prices dropped fast for the lower grades and semis. A fair number of people sold fur after the sale to the high bid buyer of their lot. We let that happen as long as we collected out 4%. Some of the "no sales" were due to fur owners, trappers having no clue where the coyote market really was. You could not fault the buyers for that. I predicated a $60-65 dollar average on the coyotes that sold a week ago tomorrow on the boards conference call. Which I am guessing was close. So some one that thought their coyotes were worth $100-130, just had no idea were the market was. There was little motivation for coyotes with neck lice and brush rubbed, lower end good. I handled 1000's of coyotes on this sale and have looked at more in a day then we had on the sale at times. I have a fair idea what they looked like. I feel we had a very successful sale and want to say Thanks to the buyers and people who had fur on the sale. Also thanks to everyone who helped by working to put on the sale. I will be surprised if this is not the coyote sale of the year again. I do not see a up swing in the market from what I hear. The days of $130 averages are dead and gone for now. I have sold plenty of coyotes for half what this sale averaged.
Yes eight buyers.

Sounds like the otter market back when it got red hot and started to fall apart, trappers get use to certain high price's and when they start heading back down they feel someone is trying to rip them off.

Good luck finding help, we use to call ourself the STP crew, same ten people, lol.

When fur is at an all time high, there is a much greater chance it will go down the keep going up. The price was down, but the tight grade dropped them as much as anything. Most people can pick a great coyote out from a bad one, but there are a lot of things that make them land in between the top and bottom. Some closer to the top than others. Last year the grade was pushed hard. This year it is real tight, as tight as I have ever seen it. I am told end users were not happy with the grade they were receiving. An adjustment was made. There was a lot of buyers trying to break even at the end of the year and that didn't happen to all them last year.
We had a lot of new help this year to go with our added volume. The board is grateful for that. We even had buyers shagging fur after they were loaded and could have been on the road.
