    You should check with a trapper in your area, or contact your State Trapping Association & see what they averaged at their sale(s) last season. You won't get a correct average via NAFA since theirs would be averaged from all fur not that just from your area, and region has much to do with a pelts value.

    While talking with your State Association (consider joining), see if there's an honest buyer in your area. I've never shipped to NAFA, probably won't. I don't want to spend $100 to pay less in comissions, or wait on it selling & getting paid for it for who knows how long. I spoke with a guy who waited over a year, lol, I'll take alittle less to walk-away with a furcheck today as opposed to a year from now.
