Fur Buyers

11 posts in this topic

Anyone know of any fur buyers near milaca, mn. (about an 1hr and 10 mins north of the twin cities). I am looking for someplace that will accept unskinned animals.

Any help would be great.

Jake

Try and get a copy of the latest issue of The Trapper and Preadator Caller magazine. They will have a list of mobile fur buyers who go around to several communities.

If you guys have good prime pelts, and are skinned. Don't give them away. A freind of mine sent his to the auction in Canada, and had an average of $58. for the Yotes, and $28. for the Fox. They are worth a lot more than $20. CAJ

I've found in the past that the mibile fur buyers that stop around at local communities generally stop around the end of December. I had a couple of furs to sell the end of January and did some serious calling around to all the places that I've sold furs to in past years as well as all the bait stores etc.... within 30 miles of St. Cloud and they all told me the buyer were done comming for the year. I was steared to Johnson's just south of Willmar. They were in my opinion very fair with exception to the one beaver I had to sell. Only got about 2/3's of what I felt it was worth.

Depends how shot up it is. One shot to the head would be just fine but if the pelt is all shot up with bb's the pelt is pretty much worthless.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
