    Green and tanned. It don't matter how we sell them. The prices suck either way. I hear coon prices around here are going to be even down from last year only things worth a damn are otters and bobcats. But i'm not in it for the money. I'm in to thin out the damn critters.

    Back when prices were better than today I always stretched and dried all my fur. But most of today's buyers perfer it either in carcass or green skinned. You don't make quite as much as stretching it yourself but the difference is small. I don't really mind not having to stretch them since the prices are so low anyway.

    The best way to get the most money for your furs is to get a hold of a fur brker and sell them all at once. Look in your trapper mag. and see when the closest is to your location. Here in Ohio the closest If I remember right is over in New Jersey. Just get a hold of one and he will get you going in the right direction. Hope this helps.

    I sale all my fur green. For the time it takes to strech it and dry it, find a broker or send it to auction, I will take my cut in pay and be fishing the spring instead of fooling with fur. The prices suck as always, but I still enjoy doing it.

    One thing I was taught all my life and have seen at many a sale, is if you want top dollar for your fur selling it green, make sure it is clean and dry. No fur buyer wants to handle wet dirty fur.
