Of course I always send Cheryl a box of chocolates before every sale too. I highly recommend that. Girl loves them chocolates.

They are a small operation when compared to what NAFA was. Everyone on their staff wears multiple hats. Things will happen and get updated in due time.

I’m getting the same thing.


Just went into 2 accounts and no problems or "not secure" notice. Suggest system may have been down for updating accounts.

Accounts were updated overnight at least as far as wild silver fox mid PM yesterday and suspect yote and 'rats are done too i.e. all yesterday updated on accounts.

I know, crazy. And same thing with lots in the same string having such different prices, identical grades. Maybe they see something in the lot they like when they inspect them before the auction?

^^^^^ Another good indication that the beaver market is mostly a HATTER market. Better off to not to put em up, if you have an outlet for frozen pelts.

That’s standard auction procedure. Everyone is trying to get it as cheap as they can.

All the lots in the same string usually only have one show lot that the buyers can look at. So it is not the pelts in the individual lots that they are bidding on.

Just a matter of people getting the number of pelts they need for a specific order, and being done buying after they get as many as they need. Sometimes they drop the price by one bid increment, but it opens up the floor to other buyers to bid up the price. Or a buyer trying to catch up with the auction to line up what they need.

What Mike Kelly said about the difference in price.

All buyers see the same show lot. The same 6 or 7 skins. No matter if it is a lot of 30 or 300. Only a few skins (the sample) are on display. The other skins (the bulk) are packed away. In boxes or bags ready to be shipped to the buyer or his customer.

keep telling your self the reason you trap is because you like to havnt seen anything sell yet worth going after money wise even beaver selling 100 percent is still one of the cheapiest furs there is if you figure your time and money spent on them

I wish I could have held out and sold the rest of my beaver on this sale. Had bigger sizes and better quality at the K. Falls OTC sale (in March) and averaged $26 on the 100 I sold there.

I debated about shipping but there is no agent close and shipping was going to cost over $100 to get it there . So I took my 22.61 average from Groenewold when he came through Tennessee.

I hear you. I had to drive 400 miles roundtrip to get my fur to an agent.

Minus 62.5cents times 400 equals $250 plus labor time.

I still get no lots found. And of course I didn't print, I'll let you know when I get it Carl.
What did otter average ? Betting I won't be thrilled, but I did want to see how they graded these days.
