Trapping, where can I take my furs??

7 posts in this topic

I used to trap with my dad as a kid. My dad, as a small farmer, trapped for extra cash. All the money from his trapping went towards Christmas at home. He used to get at least 100 muskrats and year and also trapped mink, fox, and raccoons.

This year, I want to go trapping with him again...one more time. I also want to show my nephew how we used to trap.

Where is a place in Central MN to take pelts? I can't seem to locate one.

Runningen Hide and Fur is in Fergus Falls.

Once season starts, get a copy of The Trapper and Predator Caller. There will be mobile fur buyers and a schedule of when and where they will be at certain times.

Melby Fur in New London and Johnsons fur in Willmar. I have been to both and both are very fair with prices.

Why would you consider a local fur buyer when shipping to the auction is so easy???

Contact the MTA....................

We never (rarely) used to stretch our furs. Is this something that should be done now?

I think most places will take in on the critter, but if you ship it off you need to skin, flesh and strech, i plan on doing some skinning this year as you get more for them if done right.

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.

      Pretty sure I know who that is. Won't mention any names tho. What did he get busted for?
