I averaged $41CAD last auction, but the double/triple X were $55ish, and those were fall beaver. My biggest winter was a 1x. The bidding was sometimes all over the place for the same grades.
I’m looking forward to watching the next auction!

Last spring GFW couldn’t match $30us up here, not even close, $25ca tops. Are the US people dropping this stuff off directly at a GFW warehouse to cut out the middle man? The guys going around Ontario picking up can’t be doing it for free?
Fees off my FHA check was about 11%. Right now our buck is worth about 73 cents.

I think the overall ave. at FHA was 28, so take the comm. off and time putting them up and Growing is right there.

Tops means nothing if you're selling a collection, not just cherry picking.

What time in the spring? These were picked up by GFW the end of April.

The price had went up by then. I heard it went up again after that.

Swamp, big difference here between put-up and frozen here.

While it may not be worth the time if you were still trapping, putting up Beaver after the season will net you around $8 dollars each.

Edit; now I see your average so about what I thought.

My avg was 36c after comission-over half smalls and xsm.Reason I had so many smalls was i had kept dried skins for self tanning here and there,but when i seen the prices from the winter auction I shipped them all..

I would take a 50 dollar bill for an unfleshed or boarded beaver any day, for the last 20 years they've been almost worthless and that's fleshed and stretched.

I believe it was just after the last auction in May. I asked if they wanted a few mediums I got and they said no. So they’re in the freezer at the FHA warehouse along with 22 L-xxl.

Lol^^^^

Lack of easy communications with consigners is a big turn off for me. The technology has existed for years for a company like FHA to provide much better access to what's going on.

Last auction was my first and I didn’t even know what a lot was. It’s not rocket science.
All the info was there and easy to access if you can google FHA.

Lot xxxxx

Was it a complete gong show before?

A LOT of FHA shippers here on Tman can't seem to figure out how to access their accounts, their lot numbers, or when their check is coming...it's a hoot every sale.

long time shipper to both NAFA and FHA. In the old days people just waited for their checks and found out how things did. NAFA made it a sporting event, that people would watch and maybe root for their team. Sometimes it's economically important to know the price of stuff, if you have more fur and other marketing options. Sometimes not. IMHO many people want instant gratification in our modern world and FHA does not give out information as timely as NAFA did. They could up their game, but trappers will pay for it through increased commissions or fees on the product.

I had fun watching live, crossing lot numbers & jotting down prices…..the odd “come on! What the eff!” If I missed something, I just slide the bar back a few seconds.
