Due to an expected down turn in fur sales last year, NAFA sent notices to members to only send quality fur for any chance of sale. I haven't gotten any such notice this year (yet) so maybe things are unknown, or looking up for this year? Has anyone received any info for this year?

guns: the mis-informed see them as weapons, I see them as tools.

I haven't seen anything come out from TANS on the 2018 fur price forecast, but everything I've read isn't looking good. I'm doing some coyote trapping and trapping a few Beaver and Muskrat for the meat. Other than that, trapping is a losing proposition if doing it for the money. I'm using the Beaver and Muskrat furs to make some hats and mitts.
Here's a link to one of the few articles I've read.

I don't sell any coyote fur I trap , it's a pass time to do so predator control, I've got a friend who takes and fur that's sutable for market , last year was just not worth it he told me on what he alone harvested . What I supplied him with barely paid for some new leg holds this year .
100% agree Tyson10gauge. Trapping these days is for the love of being in the woods and helping control the predator population, definitely not for the money...lol.

I'm new to trapping and Not doing it for the Money. My main reason is if I have traps and snares set then I HAVE to get up and go for a walk. LOL
This year the Property that I hunted, I stop the beaver from flooding the road for the Land Owner (for now).
For those that hunt ducks, Grouse, Rabbits . ETC.. should be trapping Raccoons to help control their populations , They love eggs and are not beyond eating rabbit ducks or birds . Coyotes I just hate, Although I haven't gotten any in snares yet I'll keep setting them as long as I see signs
Trapping for me is definitely not for the Money, but the love of being in the woods and learning new things that I can hopefully have a chance to pass to my Grand kids.
