Thanks for the honesty on the prices- I have read about these $1,000 a pelt on bobcat but wondered if that was a one out of a hundred deal.
Good years it's not uncommon. Our trapping mentor made $1,200 at auction one year.
Last year our iffy cats brought $250 and good ones $500.
Coyotes were actually pretty good this year, we got $60 for so so ones . Good guard hair coyotes brought almost $100 this year.
We might get after some beavers next few weeks after the creeks thaw a bit. Castor prices are good and we just want to catch a few and skin and maybe tan them. Best time for beaver trapping is next few weeks up here, we can set some water and trail sets, leghold traps.
Need to find a beaver board pattern though.
