FHA or NAFA

Just wandering pros and cons of both ? Thinking about shipping for first time.

Re: FHA or NAFA

Ford or Chevy. I ship to Furharvesters because over time they have had the best averages and clearance on the bulk of the types of fur I ship. As I continue to get more coyotes I'm thinking I will ship them to NAFA. They seem to get better prices and clearance on coyotes.

Re: FHA or NAFA

I have only shipped to NAFA, so I can't talk about both, but my grey fox and coon have always done excellent at NAFA. $40+ averages on my greys last year and over $22 avg on my coon, and I didn't have a lot of spectacular good. Think I topped out at $52 for the one monster coon I sent in, and had 8 top lot greys at $51 the may auction last year. Easy to ship too.

Re: FHA or NAFA

03, you and me both. I've been saying since I heard of the SAGA partnership, it's gonna be a banner year. I spend a good amount of time looking at the things that make wild fur go round. Price of the $, oil, weather, politics etc. When this year shakes out I really believe it will be a great year for both houses. I hope for all our sakes I'm right.

Re: FHA or NAFA

I ship to NAFA. I've never tried FHA. NAFA is the larger of the two big auction houses and tends to get more buyers at their auction. I just started shipping in 2010 and have been thrilled with the results.

The horizon is your starting point.

Technically it should. They sold all of their small and poor fur in the last one. I think that is why sometimes you will see higher averages there. Not sure though.
