As another trapping season approaches, the wild fur market is still in the process of recovery and it is important to remember that maximizing the value of your harvest is something that you can control. There will be good demand for most wild fur articles, however, the market will continue to be selective, so please refrain from trapping too early, when fur has not yet begun its priming process. This will only produce early caught, unprimed, smaller sized skins that are not only difficult to sell, but will produce very unattractive and disappointing prices for our producers. Similarly, trapping too late into the season (when skins become springy and rubbed) will also result in a product that is difficult to sell.
We urge everyone to take this into strong consideration as the season nears and to have a safe and successful trapping season.
