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.

      This weeks warm weather should have the panfish starting to push shallow. Hit a spot for a few min this afternoon.... Not the biggest fish by any means... but a start to open water it is

      And just like that, it's open water time.... Got a few small ones today... felt good to have the long rod out again

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.
