    Eastern coyotes ranged from $12 to $94 , nafa is only listing a section 1 average right now so it's a little misleading as to the true average of the bunch

    Hope there's better news for the marten and beaver trappers at the FHA sale. Poor to very poor clearance, lots bought back. Looks like the buyers aren't willing to pay last year's prices for the marten.

    Matt: We might be eating crayfish from the crick, rather than lobster! Coon was a big disappointment over last year . $28 for what was a $48 coon last year. I barely got half of what I was expecting. Didn't see that one coming.

    I figured the coon market was going to do this Fenelon , I was hearing rumour of declining pricing at the country dealer level in the U.S. For most of the fall , The market last year was somewhat of an anomaly and the Chinese import problems along with a softer retail season in Asia and Russia due to milder weather has led to price resistance and with the price levels at last years auctions the buyers have gotten far more conservative , it sucks as a producer to see 50% swings like this but I've sold coon through nafa since the early 90's and if I look back at my records I see a fairly consistent price over time , but man 40 buck coon are way nicer then 18 buck coon lol

    Just checked the sale on coon and beaver.Pretty bad when 4xl coon select av is only 10 cents more then my rats. Beaver good on exl and up but below that down. guess the big shot fur buyers in china that were busted late last yr didnt get out of jail in time for sale.

    most of the marten are unsold at this time , the buyers were unwilling to meet the auction house limits , hope things will be better for the May sale

    I sometimes wonder what the "break even" point is for auction houses to determine if it's in the best interest of both the trapper, and the house, to let goods go. I think they (NAFA) should have bought back the top lots of coon at this sale, rather than letting them go for those rates. I would have rather taken my chances at the next sale. I think they let all my 2,3 and 4XL SEL A and Bs go for way too cheap, regardless of the current market. Makes me ill every time I look at my sales receipt. Time to give FHA a go.
