What are your guys fur prices looking like currently? I find it interesting to see how different parts of the country and Canada can vary so differently in pricing! Lets hear it down below! Here in Southern MN my local buyer is right around this for the following animals (take it as averages as some could be a bit more or less as always)

Raccoon - $4
Coyote - $50
Muskrat - $4
Red and Grey Fox - Will buy a handful frozen if really nice, if skinned only a few bucks
Skunks - $4
Beaver - $5 Green with kits out
Beaver Castor - $80-85 a pound dried
Mink - Couple bucks

Before season, my only local buyer told me that he thought heíd be able pay close to last yearís prices of $5.50 for beavers, but for reasons out of his control, he closed down. Iím not expecting him to open up again this season, and I donít think itís his fault, considering his storm damage and market conditions.


Fur trapping is dead around here if shipping is the only option.

I'm betting he isn't paying a $50.00 average on coyotes.

And I would doubt if the muskrat average was $4.00.

So you were actually quoting prices for the top end goods.

Basis, furbuyers always quote on basis, which is the top end.

Around here probably be :

Beaver: if you held a gun to a buyer, which we don't have any of.

Coon: if you cocked the gun and looked real mean at him/her.

Probably only way to get anyone to 'buy' them here.

Can't really recall a time the fur market was this dead in my lifetime.

I guess I was, though I know he has given more for coons and yotes but I'm sure hes given much lower as well so I must have misunderstood thanks for the correction

After the 2 state sales this past weekend, I bet that 50 dollar average for put up MN coyotes gets changed quick. I heard rumors of $50 carcass coyotes around here again this fall, if that's the case there is a buyer somewhere really kicking themselves in the rear and going to be eating Ramen for a while. Buying fur is a very risky investment. The market can fall out of something at any moment. When I sell I understand the risk the buyer is taking, so I dont gripe much about the price.
