Hobby trappers. What did you take in for money for fur this year if you don't mind sharing.

Does a negative number count? When you consider the gear and gas, I lose money every year--and that doesn't include time away from work. I am good on traps for the foreseeable future so that is a positive.

I am however in deep and stopped thinking about it how much I lose.

No, just checks from the buyer is all.

About ten years ago I donated every trapping item I owned to a National Park Service biologist. Got an itemized appraisal on NPS stationary for a tax donation. Only good year I ever had on paper. Had lots of fun and good exercise, however.

I tanned all my stuff this year and sold it for about $900. I don't know what my bey would be after taking away chemicals, gas, supplies, etc though.

I made $0.00 on fur last season. I donated all of my minuscule amount of catches to Wilmington College's Biology Department. I have more than enough necessary and paying work to feel the need to prep fur for sale for close to free.

I go into this business with the idea of not making any money and so far have been quite successful....

This must be new math or something. If you loose money trapping you have nothing but time and money spent. When you deer hunt and are successful you have meat to eat. Trapping for fun is not a message we need to get out. It will someday be used to end trapping. Wish people would get that. LLL

Ha, this is a sore subject with my better half. All the stuff I had to buy for this new trapping hobby was an investment and would pay for itself I told her. This year I had all my furs tanned and had three hats made. As I am reminded frequently, Iím still in the hole.

Quite a bit really. Expenses balance out as for about 4 months I don't spend money on anything else.
