The insurance adjuster said he came up with between $17 to $47 bucks as a price I got a quote from my fur buyer he said $12 so I told him that no clue where the $47 amount came from, my guess it was a finished pelt.


Wish your adjuster was buying fur!

One year I put up civets fur out for our association sale. I had been getting about $13 each year, but the fur out year I got $9 so I never put them up that way again. Since our buyers weren't used to seeing them put up that way I wondered if they thought I was trying to hide leather problems. (Something we trappers are prone to do from time to time LOL).

I'd buy every civet I could get if some one wanted to work for them, they would be happy with my price as well, maybe some one would be interested ?

It looks like I may be wrong about craft buyers wanting feet on skunks. Apparently feet are important on skunks and increase the price.

My experience is that stripes are more important, feet are secondary. Not true .

I wonder how many skunks FH will get next season? Enough to flood the market??

Most folks just canít do it Nancy their lifestyles wonít allow it often because of the possibility of getting sprayed or stinking in their daily activities.

That goes to show you never know about the fur market. It seemed like several years ago possum was going for 8-10 dollars.

When I was a kid and caught a skunk, my mother would pay me $10 just not to bring it home. So me being a typical kid took a cheap cooler and stashed it out in the woods. Every time I would catch one I would dispatch it, put it in the cooler and kept it in a cool spot. Then when the local fur buyer would come to town I would haul in my catch where he would also give me $10. Back then I was like hitting the loto at $20 per skunk and I didn't even have to skin them!
