Rat,those are the averages Mike thinks are going to happen this season. No one knows anything for certain,let alone what highs may be gotten on a few animals. .
Everything right now is a guessing game.

Guessing,yes but educated guessing. Unless some thing changes You won't average ten on beaver without throwing out everything med and smaller. No body I know of is bullish on this fur season.

No, Bogmaster, you need to be one of the "golden children" who will get a weed "dispensary". In Sioux Falls, they're going to open a total of 5 medical dope shops probably yet this year. For a metro area of 250,000 people. I suspect there are some serious connections needed to be owners of those 5 "stores"...

Don’t often see medical marijuana mentioned in a discussion about fur prices.

Where did you sell?Sounds like you got ripped.
Avg 24cd on fall beaver xl and up dried at FHA last sale.Would have been higher but top ones were held back.

I’d say he sold to Groenwold but that was more than groeney was paying!

hey, charles, it wasn't linear, so expanding the mind (no pun intended) might be needed .

The OP was wondering about fur prices on a few species, he wants to know if there is any cash to be made. Cat daddy said he was holding out for $10 mrats and Bogmaster said, "what are you smoking" inferring cannabis. So, I thought I'd bring together, in an interesting twist, about making money (like trappers like to do) and the few who actually now do (such as GFW) in the current status of affairs with what is going on in my metro where just 5 businesses are going to be initially granted the access to corner the medical weed market. The favored few in my area. GFW isn't politically connected to corner parts of the American fur market, they did so through shrewd business practices, but GFW and the Soo Foo med weed sellers still end up at the same point, only a few are making the large amount of coin.

Sorry if it didn't work for you, maybe it didn't work for anyone besides me, but I thought I'd offer such an analogy. Happy Monday!! My coffee break is over...
