    Had a great day at the e-town sale. Caught up with alot of the guys trapperperry,wolvrine,k9trapper,fullstrut,and rubline. All the guys were very helpful and i cannot thank them enough for all their help and kind words with my first auction. I got to talk to matt jones a little bit, great guy, real helpful. His fur handling dvd is one of the best on the market and it helped alot today.I was very very happy with my fur prices here are some of my averages.

    The averages look good to me but probably still didn't clear any money. price of gas,trapping shed,atv,strechers,waders,truck,trailer,traps,lure,bait,gun,shells,and anything else i can find to buy seems to have an effect on my overhead. my wife said i didn't clear any money, but she is the one holding the check $$$;)

    Man you done awesome I would think. All you guys done well. I really enjoyed meeting you guys. I know the prices were out the roof and I'm tickled for all the guys that's been at it a long time, they deserve a good payday! I hope the prices stay high for the may sale, that's where my stuff is headed.

    Congrats again on a great year and a great payday u earned every penny!

    It was a barnburner sale for sure!! It was great seeing old faces trapperperry, team bambi, and slicked-it. Got to meet Rub Line, Cattrapper and muddhunter as well. Perry and Junior did outstanding on their well put up fur!! A big congrats to Junior for his first time selling!! He did a great job putting up his fur!! I also got to see a few of Rub Line's pieces, he did an outstanding job as well! K9 and I averaged $94 and change on our carcass otters, which I thought was outstanding. Sad to see another season come and go!! Enjoyed talking to all of you!!

    Had a good time and enjoyed seeing forum members as always. Congrats team Bambi on some fine looking fur, also to TP. Nice way to spend a Saturday. Picked me up some big iron for the ol' flat tails next year also.

    Couple ridges over


    Is those numbers for 1 pelt or what you got for the total amount? For example, was 1 bobcat 85$ or was that for all 4 you had? Also, don't worry about not making money. You at least made some money. When I kill a deer, I don't plan on selling it lol

    A great sale and good time! The Ky Fur Takers meets are one of the highlights of my year. Great conversations and story telling with good friends never gets old. My wife never seems to mind me being gone all day if I bring home money, funny how that works.

    Congrats to all who sold fur today, I didn't see anyone disappointed. I have more fur to sell, at NAFA in May/June sale.
