    Are these prices already skinned and tanned or are they the whole animal dropped off dead. I never done anything with furs but I have considered getting a coon dog and giving it a go.

    good lord! i went to an art festival in farminton hills, and they were selling coyote pelts for ~$60! and i have to admit, a few of them had slice holes in them...so its suprising what they can go for in the right area.

    Sold (Jan. 14) 9 coons in the green, got average $7 for the ( 5 large,
    4 Medium)
    1 yote $16
    1 mink $14
    2 opposums $.50 a piece
    1 squirell $.25

    I sold them all in the green, (skinned, not fleshed) and the guy i sell to was talking about how the raccoon market is way down this year, but the muskrat market is booming.

    Question about that (green) furs. Are you freezing them after skinning them? And do I need to find a certain buyer for green? Don't mean to rob a thread just was reading and saw the green fur statement.

    You probably need to check with the fur buyer on that. Make sure they buy green fur and if so HOW do they want it frozen. I read on here some like them rolled up and others want them frozen flat.

    Roll the fur fur out ,start at tail and roll to nose so when you go to sell them you hang the nose on a nail and they will unroll as they unfreeze so the buyer can see the fur.
