Other than deep pockets and knowledge of fur, what are the legal requirements and process to obtain a Pa fur buyer licence?

Check with the law enforcement division of the PGC.
At one time, and maybe still, they were the ones in charge
of fur buyers licenses.
The license, at one time, cost fifty dollars a year.
But used to died a long time ago.
I'm sure it costs more now.
I have not been involved in buying raw fur for over
thirty years.
I trap mink because I don't know any better

the permit is $100 a year and you have to keep records of every thing you buy and sell. (deep pockets helps,)

good reliable contacts in the raw fur industry helps a lot.
buying fur is alot like playing slot machines, you put alot of money in and hope you atleast break even.
