I know it's early, but with this cold weather furs will be turning soon. What are prices going to be like on coons, cats, and foxes?

Curtis, they are very easy to call in, much easier than using a snare. I'm assuming they are Greys

for coyote I think it depends on how well fur hood lined coats are selling at burlington coat factory and what the supply of Chinese dog fur is for the year

Fur Price Update 11/21/14


FUR PRICING INFORMATION

Unless Russia and China collapse we will still be buying fur this year.

Water thawed fur will not have a lot of value. These rot quickly and we cannot give you a good grade. Leave all Beaver froze with no meat showing.



GREEN FURS PREFERED--Do not expect more value in dried furs at this time.



All of Louisiana North of 1-10 TO Baton Rouge [some exceptions] all East Texas above 1-10 to Okla. Border--West to 1-35. Note that North Texas and North Louisiana above I-20 and Mississippi Delta fur will grade out better than rest of area on some items.

BOBCAT----May be 15% to 20% less than last year. Very dangerous item because of Russia. Ruble (their dollar) has fell 25% this year! Oil has fell $300.00 this fall and Russia sells a lot of oil. A lot depends of Russia's economy.

BEAVER-----Still worth trapping. Expect them to be 10% to 15% under last year.

GREY FOX---We expect prices to be 40% less than last year.

RED FOX----We expect prices to be under $15.00.

COON---Will start out under $4.00.

COYOTE--No value at this time.

OTTER---Good otter will start out at $25.00 and down.

MINK-----We will try to have a price before December.

POSSUM----We will try to have a price before December.

SKUNK ----No market for them at this time.

Southern Muskrat---- Many may average $4.00.

Green Beaver Caster----$15.00 lb.

Unless someone is a trapper they may not be aware that in recent years Russia and China have been driving the market. The current Russian troubles have made the likelihood of an embargo against buying American fur an issue and the Chinese economy is slightly down. I think the deal in China is they make fur garments that end up being sold elsewhere although some hides, like bobcat stay in China (They sew up the white bellies to make a snow leopard type garment).
In the last few years fur prices soared, well over $1,000 EACH for some really prime Rocky Mountain bobcats, all prices were up but the market just tanked from over supply and it looks like a 30 % or more drop.
The other issue is non-prime furs. In boom times you might be able to sell them but when the market tanks only the best hides sell and the rest are un-marketable.
If you just have a few hides- local muzzle loader rendezvous gatherings or craft fairs are possible markets.

Some good info stated already with Russia's problems and current economy situations and issue with china as well. What needs to be adressed is that fur is a commodity and with the falling price of oil ALL commodities will follow. There's sooo many factors that play into the fur market that drive prices up or down. I follow the market daily and I promise to every hard working trapper and fur hunter that I will offer the absolute best price that I possibly can for your hard work that the market will allow me to offer without loosin money. Feel free to give me a shout anytime to talk more in detail about the subject because I can talk about for days seeing this is what I live and breath for.

What every trapper or hunter also needs to realize is that you need to be the judge on what furs are worth targeting and the quality of the fur that you process. Small coon will have little value as well as thin canine. You shoul be the judge if that animal is worth your time to process or not. It's tough for a trapper not to skin and try to make money off everything that you catch but a little knowledge of what pelts will actually make you some money and which ones are going to take more time to process than dollars gained
