The first string of otter did not sell. The second string sold for $55.00 - which would be the top lot. Good job have 5 otter in that string.

Next highest price I saw was $46.00. Then $43.00. And down from there.

Seems like on the better otter, the lighter colors were more “in demand” than the darker skins,

I still dare anyone to publish any sold coon lots. I had 16 different lots and not one lot sold. My break down was about 42% select, 25% damaged, and 33% in between. Most were North-Central, with 2 lots of Western Semi-Heavy. Just crazy that nothing sold, even for cheap.

P.S. Is FHA really tagging on $7 a pelt, any pelt, for handling fee to the buyer? If so, makes NAFA's handling fee per pelt a bargain for the buyers when they functioned....

FHA buyer fees on raccoon are 8.2% of hammer price plus a $2.50 per pelt handling fee. Those fees are straight from the FH buyers letter.

Not sure you got $7.00

X 2. NonPCfed read the terms and conditions in the on line FHA catalogue. All laid out straight there on that subject.

Pretty sure that marten and red squirrel prices are lower than April. Why must we lie? frown


fixed it for you.
Squirrels only 1/2 of what they were in April 2021, same goes with marten
except the top and bottom bundles and that's the cherry picking new release.


N50: squirrel average April $1.71. Gibb just posted on Canadian forum he averaged $2.28 on 11/11 sold i.e. 33% more. Where you get the half price this sale?

And marten were not half either. Not great but not half either. See what sold catalogue looks like in a few wks., grade for grade, compared to April. FHA saying some increase - not so sure about that but we see lot for lot later.

I stand corrected on the pelt handling fee. I thought I saw that $7 number somewhere on this thread.

Don't worry they will sell them. You will not like it and they will say they did it to keep the doors open. You may get a check with no explanation until after the next shipping date has come and gone but they will have at least moved them for you and paid their bills. Then you may complain and hear others who have not been in your shoes tell you "you knew the risk when you sent them up there."

It will be a cold day before I ship any fur of mine out of this country period. I sold one of my coon that was left over for two dollars. It was a 3-4x I-II CD Western Heavy. LLL

Up market, down market, sell, hold, trap a lot, trap a little, trap this, don/t trap that. Nobody has a crystal ball. Throw in covid, oil prices, commies in the streets who knows what.
Sometimes I ship to auction sometimes I don't. I'm not trying to sell 1000's of anything much less in a dead ,market so I can't really syumpatyhize. But I try to keep an eye on things and if shipping looks good, then I ship. If shipping doesn't look good then I do something else.

Marten prices are down the typical 10 to 15% for the second major sale of a season for a Canadian auction. That is why I used to bust my arse to get them on the FEB/March sale.

I'm happy with the sale, thought yotes and cats did very well, castor also. I didn't send any fresh coon or beaver as I still have some pending a top dollar bid.

Thanks for posting NBWildKid! It looks like that was sort of a color grab bag of average 2xl Eastern coon. Good to know...

The bigger better coon from your section assuming S.D., sold in the high teens to low twenties. That said they had to be big western heavy coons. And............very few of those sold. It appears the Chinese were looking for cheap, cheap, $1-$4 coon sold a few.

Yeah, I didn't get any graded by FHA as "Western Heavy". I used to get about 30% graded that way at NAFA but this lot I shipped to FHA were also donated coon caught later in the season, so maybe there was a decline in fur density that got them graded North Central. However, at NAFA, a majority of my coon were also graded Northern-Central so perhaps its just my geography.

At least some coon were pushing north of $15...

Some of the blacks went PT for 7.50. There was some confusion in the aftermath.
