wissmiss. Thanks for your updates. I’m sure Paul will reward you with a modest salary increase.

Thanks wissmiss, I didn't have any fur here, but I like to keep track of where things are. I wish they had an online deal so anybody could watch like nafa did, but then again their gone so perhaps it's good they don't!
Thank you!

Many of you are concerned about attendance /participation in an internet auction as opposed to a live auction. Here is an interesting note from a post on Facebook.

Ken Frederick, a FHA employee based in North Bay, stated that for this internet auction they had more buyers registered than would fit in their auction room!! To me, that says something. More buyers usually means more bidding.

An internet auction allows me, as a small buyer, to bid on goods WITHOUT spending a couple thousand dollars to attend a sale in person in North Bay. That is a big plus for many small buyers. True, a small buyer doesn’t spend that much money BUT a lot of small buyers spending a little money all adds up.

Ken also made the comment that the coyote market is what it is. The outcome wouldn’t have been any different if their auction room had been full of live buyers. No one wants coyotes!!!

11% plus drumming on long hair species and shipping.

The buyer also pays a commission. 8.2% plus a per pelt handling fee that varies by species.

How did you make out on your cats Lee?

I would be surprised if none of the skunks sold since Nancy mentioned there had been some activity in that regard a day or two before the gavel struck.

I sold 3 of the 26 coyotes I had left from the earlier sale. They went for a total of $9.00. Won't be much left after the commission and drumming. I wanted to reduce the coyote population around here but this makes it very difficult, lol.


55 years trapping. It's who I am. Every day is still as exciting as it was when I was a kid.

Looks like all my coyotes will be tanned for my own use this year. Anybody know what the nicer western bobcats went for?

The nicer western bobcats, especially the bigger sizes, were not sold. $700.00 cats are not easy to sell. Even $500.00 ones struggle.

I have no idea what is happening in the PT room.

Just because they registered dosen't mean they bought anything or even did any bidding.. If they spend the money to show up In person to actual action probably means they will most likley do some bidding.

Beav - why always so negative. It must suck yto be such a grouch!!

When NAFA was still in business, there would be any number of people that came to the auction and registered and never went in the auction room. In fact, they never looked at any fur!! They sat in the buyers lounge, played cards and ate free food!!

By registering for and bidding in an on line auction, the buyers have more money to spend on fur. So there!!!
