When I look at the quantities of fur and the fact that NAFA is now out of the picture I'm surprised that there is so little. Looks like roughly the same quantities on most species as FHA offered 12-13 years ago.

They are on page 56 of 81 on regular ranch mink. Then the breeders and Section III.

It is slow going. Not a lot of action but they are selling a few. Should be more bidding when they get to the ranch fox.

Note - it has take. 6 hours to do 60 pages. 10 pages an hour. S L O W.

Nancy, has there been any word on why this is still an internet sale? Were they worried that if they planned one and trudope locked the country up again, it would hurt worse? That iis my guess, but just a guess!

Covid issues in China. War in Ukraine. Less expensive for FH to run the sale. Those are 3 reasons.

They are happy with the way the internet sales go, may not want to go back. Just my opinion.

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.

I read somewhere that the internet auctions are starting to catch on.

Yup. A lot more bidders than on the first internet sale. The pictures really help. Bobcats are a tough sell without in person inspection.

It saves me a lot of money to buy at an internet sale.

Wissmiss, do you feel you can properly gauge a high end fur like a quality wolf or really good cat from the online platform though? Id be afraid to take the plunge without having hands on inspection I would think. Thats one reason Id be curious to see an example of the buyers catalog.
Some day Id be interested in one of the better arctic wolves but Id have serious apprehension about spending that kind of money on the online platform.

Still think you would get a better value for the trapper if a bid extended the closing time on a lot. Most of the online auctions use this system now and it can add a lot of value to an item.
