Trapping, where can I take my furs??

Recommended Posts

Hammer Handle

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.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
