Be thankful he is telling you he will still buy some mediocre fur at all.

Why? I bet a lot of businesses would offer me a job for 50 cents an hour. I'd still be starving and broke. I should be thankful? crazy

There are symbiotic and parasitic relationships. I prefer not to be a host.

I know the fur market kinda sucks for sure-but at least a few items did sell through-re beavers-straight through. Yes they are work but pretty well everyone/state/province has them. Alot of us on here are getting older-we may not be able to wait out the fur market for it to get better. My take is I am going to trap for as long as I possibly can-probably not long lining etc.. but at least get out there and enjoy catching some fur while my body allows me to do it .I have a pile of muskrats on the sale that have not sold for 2 fur sales-am I going to trap rats again this fall-absolutely I am( cause it is a passion I have),and beavers,and some late season coon( only keeping the bigger skins) and I am going to give skunk trapping/skinning a try as well. Better yet I am excited about trying something new-have thrown away hundreds of skunks in my day but now they seem to be attracting buyers so I am going to give it a whirl.

If you are trying to get rich at this-you won't- but you certainly won't catch any fur if we don't trap. I am just going to get out there this fall and enjoy our wonderful outdoors everyway I can-have lost too many friends lately that have stated they will do this and that AFTER they retire. It 's not always about the money, but if we get a return of some sort of monetary value-to me that's just a bonus. Putting up your catch on those cold winter nights in the garage or shop is very enjoyable as well-which many of you fellow trappers already know.

Better than parking my plump arse in front of the TV each and every night as far as I am concerned

Beaver are one of the few animals I can still make money chasing. Market for fur, meat, skulls, tails, castor, oil sacs and feet.

I just bid a beaver job and got the Ok to start tommrow. $200.00 set up fee and $100.00 a beaver.
Nothing worse then trapping beaver In July with 90 deg temps and high humidity. Maybe a should have bid It a bit higher.

Beaver will have much more value in the near future when people are scavenging.

I might see if I can catch 500 again. Been catching just over 100 for the last several years.

That's my plan to run rats this year and maybe catch the few beavers that we have around me, but other than that I may only catch a couple of yotes and tan them since I haven't caught one yet. I'd rather be running a trapline than staying inside and doing homework, that's for sure. Hopefully, I can experience the feeling of putting up some of my own furs this year.

Just make sure you get the homework done too. An outdoor education and an academic one go hand in hand wink

This has happened twice on the Groeny
New York State Route leaving us with
a freezer of raw beaver to hang onto.

Hope it doesn't happen again.

I just received a check yesterday from FH for two female DK/XDK marten, $31 each. I had forgotten all about these skins.
Didn't think that was too bad.

I'll get it done but it will be really tough this year since I'd rather be out on the trapline.

That is about what they brought in 1999, when the market sucked. Price of gas was about $1 a gallon $1.70 delivered. A new sno-go was $3600.
