Here's the last shipment of fur for the year, other than some spring beaver. I couldn't really fit it all in one shot, as I need a bit bigger fur shed/ shop. Hope those prices hold!!!

That represents a whole bunch of work - and as we all know, some excellent fur handing. At times, I am sure it was some fancy skiff handling as well.

Good luck with prices and thanks for being so generous with your limited time ie: sharing your tips and techniques with the rest of us. We all appreciate it.

How the prices going to hold when your flooding the market. cry

Nice Job T4E. Quite a year and thanks so much for letting us be a part of it. Not very often that someone of your caliber takes us on a ride like you have provided this year. Speaking for myself and probably a lot of others here. Your an inspiration. And I very much appreciate what you have shared here.
Hope the prices hold, and you make enough to buy your a wife a very special present. She also deserves one I am sure.

That is a boat load of fur!

Heck, you could run your own private fur auction!

Good Luck at the auction. I predict you will do very well.

Your hard work will be rewarded.

You are a real trapper.Not only have you trapped an impressive amount of animals but you have also put them all up yourself.Not only that but you have done a top notch job on the fur handling-Excellent example for all to follow.

Nice Haul! Don't see it fitting in a flat-rate box! Should be enough to buy a bigger skiff. LOL.

Do you always wear suspenders or did you lose a little weight? Them jeans are looking a little big on you.
