Bobcat prices
« on: January 24, 2019, 10:27:01 AM »
Any idea what eastern Washington cats should be going for?  Fleshed and stretched.
Been offered $125 a cat.  Not sure if thats low or a good price.

There is a newer thread about the fur sale in Idaho. Bobcats averaged $382 with one going for almost $1000 so I would think hard before giving them up for $125

It’s a lot to do with how pale they’re and the spots on them and the most crucial is how they were put up

East side of the cascades that might not be a bad price. East of the Columbia maybe low. Really hard to say without looking at them. Look at the belly. If the belly is not fully white and has a bridged place where the white is interrupted somewhat it is not going to make the higher prices. I doubt you will be able to appreciate what a high priced cat looks like unless you go to some of the sales and get a look at the good and bad. Might be educational to take your cats to one of the sales.

I had a ferry county cat last year about 12-14lbs, didn’t wanna skin it myself in case I messed it up and a buyer offered me $100. Had a great coat though. I think he said when he put it up it got around $300 at auction. Like $280 something, would’ve gotten more but it was too small. That was text book good looking cat though
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen

 :yeah:

It is shocking to see the difference between a $1000 cat and a $50 cat in person.

Take yours to a sale and see what you get.  I think all or most sale's you can put a reserve of how much you are willing to take before you would sell it.  So put $200 and see if anyone will give you $200.  And if nobody gives you $200 or whatever you put as your reserve then send them to NAFA.
