Re: coon prices

I spoke to a furbuyer on Saturday and he said the very best color largest 'coon will bring $16. He said small blue 'coons will be hard to get rid of at any price.
If you aren't trapping to control the 'coon numbers in an area, you might be better off releasing all but the big ones. Or if you are just learning to handle furs, this is a good year to practice.

Re: coon prices

I havent trapped any coon yet tis year. But you should watch out for some fur buyers. They will try to rip you if they can. I have read that some have been selling to groen and getting 20+ in the round for large coons. If you wouldn't mind pm me the name of the fur buyer who quoted those prices. Sounds like one I kmow who said put ups would bring 8 to 12. I think I would send away or take to auction if not in need of the money.

Re: coon prices

If you can find a Groenewald route around here, sell 'em. Since he doesn't come anywhere around here, and is buying midwest coon which are a whole different ballgame than most of our coon, $16 sounds pretty fair. That's one of the problems with the internet, people read prices from other areas and try to equate them to our area.

Re: coon prices

I'm gonna wait on everything and take them to one of the PTA district fur sales. This is almost always where I get the best prices. When the fur buyers are competing against each other, the trappers come out ahead.

Re: coon prices

x2
I got 11 dollars a piece on my coon last year at a PTA auction, and I was told coon were only going for about 8$.
I will probable sell there again this year.

If at first you don't succeed.... reload!

Re: coon prices

Early season coon vary widely in both quality and size.
Generally the young ones, this year's kits, are among the early caught.
They will have neither the size or quality fur buyers are seeking.
Naturally these will be at the bottom of the heap during pricing.
The older, larger coons will vary greatly in quality.
Some will be blue, the early caught, some will not.
The more time that passes without coon denning up for
weather related reasons bodes well for better pricing.
For the benefit of the new guys, when coon den for days on end,
they tend to urinate on themselves and their den mates.
That leaves the reddish tint or stain on the fur.
This is not wanted in the fur trade.
In the end, weather will determine the quality of later caught
coon pelts.

I trap mink because I don't know any better

They do have good prices.
I think Dist. 7's sale in Washingtonville, Pa. may had the highest overall prices last January.
