Sold last weekend at the NJTA fur sale. These prices are only my fur and are all averages. By average I mean it includes every pelt of that kind of animal I sold, perfect pelts, good pelts , damaged and junk (I didn't have any junk) are all included in the average:
Rats $4.23
Male Mink $4.75
Female mink (one) $2.50
Gray fox $10.00
Red Fox $5.05
Coyote (one small) $15.00

This year I did small walking lines with as little driving as possible. Total covered my expenses so in this market I feel blessed.

Bruce: that was a 1 night catch from 2018. My best 1 night catch ever (114), remember I trap alone and none of these were caught from a boat. Many I carried 50 yards or more in a garbage can.. Was the day before they shut down feeding for the year. On that day you can just about stuff any trap set in a stream as they are heading the wintering mud hole type swamp or ditch. Took me a day to recover due to leg cramps from dehydration despite drinking a bunch of gatorades!! But it still is the most fun I have had in years.

Wow, nice! Tons of turtles!


Hiding our humane dispatches doesn't keep the Antis from showing their own gruesome ones. In this 1 sided story, who will the public believe, then?

Nice, looks like its been a decent year for rats. $4-$5 averages on the auctions is far better than the $2-3 I was seeing guys get from locals this winter.

Very nice, thanks for posting.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.
