I thought the rendezvous was very well done too.  I learned a lot from the demos and the WDFW Fisher biologist, and met some of the people I have learned things from on this forum.  My thanks to all.

I think it went really well. I am concerned about the fur sale part of it as it continues to go downhill. I have a few ideas to help that situation but I'm not very confident that they will be enough.
Other then that everything good except I have been justed wiped all day, so tired. It was a long day for me!

I had a great time, and learned a lot also. The guys that spoke did a great job. I'm looking forward to the summer rendezvous.  :tup:

The way we had trappers dealing directly with buyers we had no way to track prices. Only way to know is if someone who sold wants to post what they received.

I didn't sell any fur, but did ask a buyer what he paid for a muskrat that was on the table. He told me $8.00
