Re: Buying fur in Western PA

Approach with caution. Not to rain on anyone's parade, but unless fur markets begin to move the goods they are holding it might be difficult to find buyers anywhere in the state. The roadblock, they tell me, is in China. That is where most of North America's fur goes and right now the Chinese just aren't buying.

I will deliver a word of caution here. If anyone is thinking of getting into trapping to turn a quick buck do yourself a favor and look to other pursuits.

I trap mink because I don't know any better

Re: Buying fur in Western PA

Become a member of your district and you'll get notices in the mail whe the district fur sale is. I believe most districts have a fur sale, but if not district 2 has theirs in the middle of February in kittanning and someone usually posts about it on here. There's usually 3 buyers there and you can choose who you want to sell to.
