I'm not giddy by any stretch of the imagination but my second batch of fisher sold 100% at $24.40 ave. versus April when I did clear 100% but at $14.97 ave. same fisher almost 10 bucks more ave. still crap but better! Got to have something to believe in!

Fisher prices nearly double with exceptional clearances!

Must be a use for them or they wouldn't sell 100%
Question is why did they sell so cheap if there's a use for them?

I would bet a lot of the fur that sells there will be on another sale there. When fur is that cheap, a fair amount of that happens. There are people that make a living at it.

I am surprised FHA is updating trappers accounts during the sale. Must have been listening in on our complaining.

High clearance regardless of price and who is buying bodes well for the market.it means confidence in a market expected to rise.

Had 2 April caught mink while doing a rat job that graded Select. I thought mink started going bad In January. Don't know If they will sell but time will tell.

I think a lot of this fur buying Is on speculation so I don't see It as any market indication.

If speculators are buying, I think it is a good sign. They wouldn’t be buying if they didn’t think the market was going to go up eventually. Not as good as furriers buying, but it is better than nothing.

Thanks for the info Guy. But don't see much difference between 14 or 24 dollar fisher, relative to the cost of production and the buying power of the dollar today. Why not speculate at these low values on an item like fisher/

How much of the furs sold, are holdovers from prior auctions ? Can't see trapping and sending furs to auction at these low prices.
