2019/2020 Fur Season
« on: August 29, 2019, 07:11:41 PM »
The Fur season is only a couple months away. The coyote market is still strong and I will again be running routes in Washington and  Eastern Oregon.

I am also offering a new service this year. Tanned wall hangers are still available and this year you can have teddy bears made from your fur.

Depends on how much work I do and size of the teddy bear. If I take your animal from whole carcass to my largest Teddy it will be $195. That price includes everything, start to finish.

A standard Coyote/Bobcat wall hanger (carcass to tanned wall hanger) is $125.

The more work the hunter or trapper does, like skinning, fleshing, stitching holes and smaller size teddy bears go down from $195.

Looks like im going to have to get me some yotes this year.  Those bears would make great gifts for my nieces.
Right wing shooter, I aim for the left!!!

Nowhere in your incoherent rambling did you come close to what can be considered a rational thought. Everyone is now dumber having heard it. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.

I am in the Tri-Cities but run routes all over Washington, Eastern Oregon and portions of Idaho.
Prime fur starts in November with coyotes. Every animal primes at different times but generally November 1st to late February for coyotes. Bobcats are best after Chiristmas.
Unless you are comfortable with skinning and "Put-Up" its best to just bag the coyote and freeze it whole. Take care of it in the field, place in a plastic bag (don't tie it closed), and freeze. Give me a call when the freezer is getting full and I will schedule a route.

Thanks for posting your routes. Please keep updating as you schedule. Has the disruption in the fur market changed values for the small time hunter/trapper?

Still waiting to see the effect the loss of NAFA will have. Many are speculating and I tend to agree that the fur market will be just fine. The loss of NAFA is not good but there are many outlets to get you fur in the hands of the retail market.

I know FHA is doing what they can to receive as much fur as possible. FHA is bringing on new shipping agents and will, at least out west, try to fill the NAFA void. There are significant logistical issues in taking the previous NAFA fur. I am not confident that FHA can, in such as short time frame, develop the manpower, trucking, infrastructure....to add millions of additional furs.

I have already seen an increase in calls from trappers and hunters looking to sell me their fur. I suspect this is the case with every county buyer in the country. I also anticipate record breaking attendance at local and regional auctions.

The demand is there and the fur industry will not be going away. It will however take on a different look.
