    There are a fair number of trappers here on the BOC.
    I started this thread because I wanted to know the current prices of fox fur and realized there is nowhere a guy can go to find out. What a better place to find out than right here.
    So how about it guys what are you getting for your fur.

    i called a fur buyer the other day and was told coons, $3 and $2 for the meat. when i was 15 i was getting $18 to 20 for the hides. i am not gonna skin a coon for 3 dollars. i hope the good lord excuses me for throwing them away, but i cannot see skinning and hauling them to a buyer for $3. i hate to not use the resources but they do tear up the feeders.
