I never dealt with this route man before. His name was hunter.



Prices are so bad for the average guy that Pleugers coon average must be down around $10 now.

I heard Hunter (GFW) say rats just went up to $5 top, I believe it was $4.50 previous.

That's correct . But there aren't many $5.00 rats In what you show up with. I had 40 rats and had only 5 $5.00 rats. Granted they were all caught early In fact some of them were caught before the season opened. Was doing one of my ADC rat jobs. But I was happy with a $13.50 average.It's nice being able to sell your rats twice. LOL

Beav, what would you say your 4xl coon was for grade and color? Six bucks for a put up 4xl is not encouraging. I don't have but about 20 and all are the first 15 days of November. Some look good. I have a line out now. I caught one 3 days ago that is 3xl but is really well furred.
Rats, was the break from $5.00 to 3.50 mostly going from 2xl-3xl down to xl? My batch looks like a few 2xl-3xl, a lot of xl and the rest large, medium with about 5% kits. Many would be considered average fall rats. Don't know if the uptick in the market will add some value to heavier rats or not.

I hear you, I've released a lot of small coon from my k9 sets, but still have some put up 2xl and 3xl that were caught in 220 otter sets. Sure hope they bring at least $5 .

Barnes will be around next weekend. I will post what I get. I have 2x and bigger coon and some coyotes. My daughter will be selling her rats and otter. I am betting Barnes will be more. Maybe not much but more. I also have beaver and Castor.


Wish I had more time to trap....

I don't see why anyone would pay more for rats when groney has kind of set the price.

. Probably right Beav. Good point about his five dollar pile. Makes it sound good. An average on a good bunch of rats with kits and mediums out?

I had 17 out of 33 @ $5. I had measured 20 @ 2-3XL. Seems like they really grade tight on the sizes the last few years. These were rats from late last winter that I held over because they stopped buying early. I think these were the same prices he paid early winter last year when I averaged $3.99 for about 70 rats I dont trap many rats and I havent started before December 10 the last 4 or 5 years. I am going to make my first few sets tomorrow

I just looked at my check stubs from last year and Groney was at a top price of $6.00 on rats.
Sell now because historically speaking gorney pays better early In the season Then later when the rats are at their best.
