Why? What exactly has changed? How about a little transparency in the market?

Maybe it is a money issue. Goods from last year aren’t moving, so why buy more. Just speculation on my part. Nothing to back up my thoughts.

Dream on. When has any large fur buyer (or auction company) ever been 100% transparent. Just saying - same ol, same ol.

$4-$5 gallon gas, truck rental, no workers, and other issues. I would speculate not enough profit to cover the overhead of road buying.

FHA put out their market report a couple weeks ago.
They are getting inquiries from buyers about quantities,for rats, marten and western coyote,according to the report.
Wild mink and coon stagnating-other fur looking to increase incrimentally.
Big demand for wolves,wolverines and Bears,if handled correctly.
Premiums for heavy beaver.

Groeny is likely shutting down his pick ups to save money-he will likely buy fur at FHA even if he has to pay more for it there than from trappers it will still be cheaper for him to do that and save costs on running a fur pick up.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

Nothing has changed so why would FHA issue a report stating that? I doubt they would comment Groenewold's intentions if that's what you're wondering. Very little demand for wild fur with the exception of Muskrats heavy coyotes and maybe under ice heavy beaver would not earn them any points. Anyway, the notice says postponed not cancelled, maybe good to take a wait and see position. And........ I bet there's a world of green fur looking for a home by February and March.

"What exactly changed?" - that is what I wanted to know, they had routes planned, something obviously changed,,, and John Q. Trapper is not privy to that information apparently,,,,

I knew when I asked I'd get no answer from them, you can call it rhetorical if you want.
