I listened to quite a bit of the March auction, especially lots that I bid on via the on line auction. Never once did I hear a tie bid.

It seemed to me that the opening bid was the high bid from the on line auction. And the bidding went there there.

Example - The on line bidder bid $6.00. That is where the auction room bidding started. If some one in the auction room wanted to bid, they would have to bid $6.50. If no one in the room bids, the on line bidder buys it for $6.00

The only down side is that the buyers in the room were able to figure out that the opening bid was online and all they had to do is bid the next bid and they would win because the on line bidder couldnít bid again.

I lost any number of lots by 50 cents. But thatís life.


Gotta be better way so that on line, and in person bidding, are integrated and can bid against each other in real time. Having said that I know nil about auctions but to my poor understanding the auction is potentially leaving money on the table. Where the auction works on a commission basis seems both the auction and the shipper loose without real time bidding between remote and auction room buyers. The benefit is to the buyer. Maybe it cost too much to do that and the losses outweigh the benefits. Again I don't know and would like to have it explained.

Wissmiss said she lost any number of lots by .50 cents. More money than that on the line as no telling how high she, or the auction room buyers, would have went if they could real time bid against each other.

Tell me what I am missing here.

I think it gets tricky. Guys wait until the last second and click send to out bid another buyer by $1. Iíve been on different web auctions where you just put your max bid and thatís it.

I was under the impression that you figured the bidding started at the highest max online bid when instead it starts at the highest winning bid. If I misread your comment my apologies.

Some online auctions you have two bids one is what you would like to buy it for and the other is max you will go. Example I bid $3 on 50 rats but my max bid is $5 so start bidding at 3, someone bids 3.50 bid goes to 4 and so on up to 5 where I would still be the winning bidder. FHA needs to catch up to tech.

Online bidding isn't bad. The timed Online bidding is a pita. Seems that some watch the timer and will sneak in their bid just at the right time before the clock runs out. As a bidder with the highest max bid or a seller a guy can get bent over and not reach the max value of what is being sold.

OK, my beaver are showing up now. If I would've known how the new trapper portal works they were probably there all along. Me and new technology get along like water and oil.

They're all accounted for. Doubt whether any of the three made select heavy though!

You mean the ones like this one (for those that don't know what Mud is talking about).

Some of those beaver came from the Oregon coast and some from the Willamette river. Big difference in quality.

Funny BP, my absolute worst one had perfect leather. It was bizarre. And it was a bad one!

Mine are up.
Tougher beaver grade it seems for me but good on rats. A lot graded black which I figured.

Ok. Is the clarity anything I've done as a trapper putting it up or just the way it is?
