I haven't trapped in years. I do take my deer hides to local fur dealer. When I took my buck hide, last week, he told me the market was flooded with fur. He said some were throwing fur away, it was bad.
I love to trap, but unless something changes bigtime, the furs are all going to the tannery this year. There's a fine line between selling fur and giving it away and today's market is so low, there really is no viable market for the common items.
