    Sad that the average price for a Eastern Coyote is only $43...after costs, brokerage charges, taxes etc. ...you might take home $5....

    Trapper I am curious. Why is raw fur selling for practically nothing yet anything made of fur or leather is still expensive.

    Seem's everyone else makes the money and only the source loses. You must really have a love of Trapping.

    You can make your own stuff with furs you trap, there is a process to it but you can.

    Think about every single resource, the more people in the middle the more cost involved.

    I keep seeds for my tomatoes, I grow 40 plants of each type. I turn those into salsa with a little vinegar, a 500ml jar, some cilantro and hot peppers that I also grow from seed. My total cost is about $2, I can sell it for $8, if I were to sell the tomatoes and peppers I would get maybe $2 for the same ingredients that go into that salsa, talking 3 times the profit when you make a value added product as opposed to the raw product.

    You can tan the pelts yourself, pay the royalty and sell them with a trappers license, the details I am not exactly clear on but I know you can do this. If you make your own hats, mitts, coats, etc, then you can charge slightly less than the big companies and sell them but your time invested goes up and depending on how fast you are the added value is moot.

    Trapping has not been a money maker for a long time, the guys here refuse to trap locally for beaver because they make more on nuisance calls from the municipality than they ever would selling raw hides.

    Trapping is a labour of love.

    I have my license and if I chose to could have the greatest mentor a young man could ever have (my grandfather, a trapper of 60+ years experience), but I just cant justify the startup expense and time commitments to make it work. I still accompanied him on many an outing of course, I just never took the step of doing my own trapping. I'll still handle the nuisance removal on our family property and our neighbours once he no longer can, but its to make sure us and the neighbours can access the properties without the damn beaver washing out a culvert or two.

    I was kinda referring to that Trappers have to truly enjoy the job. From what I see you would be lucky to break even.
