I averaged $5 on my coon. My first time at Nafa. All is a learning experience for me on the auction route. I looked at the season forecast on prices and knew what to expect. Maybe when things improve and economies get better the prices will go up. I had fun from trapping them ,"putting them up" and watching the auction.

I have been trapping since I was 13 years old and that was way back in 1979. From 1979 until sometime in the early 2000's I sold to local fur buyers, then I started going to the PTA auctions. I decided to give NAFA a try in 2010 and was really impressed with the prices I received and have been sending every year with the exception of 2017 when I went to the district 5 PTA Auction.

It is a lot of fun listening to the NAFA Auction online. It was really fun in 2012 and 2013 when fur prices were really good.

I just can't skin, scrape and board coon for these prices.


I miss it though. I really enjoy putting up fur and the NAFA auction.

When the market tanked and I had a batch of coon on a fire sale, and someone stole a coyote from a cable that same winter, I stepped away.

I run a coon dog so the coon are worth more alive to us.

Now that I live in better trapping land, I aughta start gaining permission and planning a line for this winter. I miss it. Must have been 12-13 or 13-14 when I made some decent money... especially sending a few reds that year. I think I averaged $50 on reds. Averaged like 22-23 on coon and if I didn't hack up my first handful I scraped I'd probably averaged around $30. Went from hack jobs to top lot that first batch of coon I sent. I know that piece of paper isn't worth much...but meant the world to me knowing it meant I did a good job with my put up.
