Anyone have a report on the sale today?
Avg. price? Number of lots?
Thanks Freepop. 3 hours of fast and furious. Turnout was larger than I expected. We had 10 buyers, several representing tanning and taxidermy interest. Interest in beaver and coon was up, although $$ mainly unchanged. There were some very nice coon on the sale. The rats were a mixed bag, and as expected, $$ were down exactly half a buck from Kzoo, and .90 from Dec.. On all species, was certainly the year to sell early.
Hype and over anticipation at the early stages of the season have produced higher $$ at the start of the season, for several years now. Later, reality sets in, and we're stuck in a rut. There were approximately 35 lots.
Question on the badger. Was it skinned cased or opened up and flat like a beaver. Feet with claws on it? What have some at others sales went for? Thanks
The only Badger I seen was one that was put up with feet attached. The trapper said it was December caught and it was very prime and thick pelt.
Sorry about that, case skinned, fur out. It would be a fine wall hanger for sure.
Very few badger are taken, and only a very few at the sales. Most are poorly furred, as they are Fall caught. Badger prime in the den, like a bear. A really good Mi. can fetch $50 skinned for taxi or carcass. I'd like to buy a Dakota big boy on the hoof. For the right ones $$100.00 plus.
