If they’re offering up to $50CA for an xxl, are they expecting an up tic in value next year?

Had anyone heard from GFW lately? Didn't see anyone at the NTA and been rather quiet on Facebook?

I saw and talked to him at Escanaba NTA, he said beavers were still looking good but wasn’t sure how prices were gonna be. He said it depended on supply. He figured the number of beavers caught in the UP this year would triple.

That's up to $36 USD, good winter beaver were up to $69 Last March at FHA, almost double green price. Shearable mid winter beaver will be strong again with the grade being tightened up. No November beaver anymore. Even Waaaaay north.

walleyed talked with Gary last Friday at the NYSTA convention.

Gary said he was considering an early winter pickup
around mid-December in addition to his mid-April spring pickup.

Any time the grade is being tightened up you are seeing resistance. Value is added three ways, tightening the grade, dropping the price, or both.

If I can still get $40 US for these kinds of beaver I'm golden this year with my section of big river uglies.

Top price he paid for these thin-furred southern beaver was $40 last March. Skint and frozen..not put up.

What's that? About $54 or $55 Canadian?

most guys from our areas averaged about $40 canadian-all sizes and qualities in before deductions on North Bay sale-so $50 canadian for XXL might have a hard time cutting it-just saying

Yep,gonna have to up the game to compete with FHA.
GFW seem to be trying to play catch up right now with FHA
FHA is going to keep raising the bar for the next few sales at least I expect.

I agree with WY Wolfer,I think we will soon see premiums paid for good big prime northern beaver.

GFW was paying $30 cash this spring, on average, for a straight run of put up spring Beaver.

$40 CAD all sizes after commissions at FHA is $25 USD or less. Probably more like $23.50.
