Have not been around raw furs since my childhood. I am curious what the expected financial haul is for your stack of furs? I know it depends on the quality and current pricing but not sure what it pays to trap anymore. My grandfather was a raw fur buyer on the East Coast for many years including the Depression years. He worked for a major firm in Boston. I have some of his records of buying and pricing in the early 1900's. My Dad trapped for some years along the Connecticut River, mainly muskrat and occasionally a mink. He was always excited when he got a mink because of the huge difference in prices between the two species.

Lots of work there!  Well done!

 Great job! Speaking of jobs, do you have one?  :chuckle: I have shrunk my line considerably because it's too hard for me to do both.

28 nosler

Nice!  I've been considering a 28 Nosler. Or the new 27 Nosler.

Gary
One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted. If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job. ~ Jose Ortega y Gasset
