Big estate auction. Guns, knives, traps, etc. Check it out at Great North Auction. Website. Looked like some old, possibly rare traps. Supposed to be June 2nd and 9th, maybe one other day. Wish I could be there!

I went to an auction in fairbanks a few summers ago where this guy had 1000 traps and trapping gear he was trying to sell for $20,000 and of course nobody would buy it in one lump so he auctioned them off instead of selling them as people wanted, needless to say there was maybe 20 people that showed up and we were buying bundles of traps for $10, $15, $20 a pop. I felt bad for the guy because he lost a ton of money and he looked like he was holding his tears back towards the end. I think I'll be checking this one out too..............................

What a collection.
Anyone want to bid on the 9.3 or 416 rugby for me???

All those guns and they have pos scopes on most.

I wonder what stuff is going to be in what location??? They can't haul it all back and forth would they?

Looks like he got serious about his mule deer hunting at some point. The first rack, about 1/4 of the way down the page for day 1, is a huge buck. Later there are 2 more super heavy sets of antlers.
Estate sales are kinda strange; kids or whatever basically saying get rid of all this junk and gimme some $. One thing's for sure you can't take it with you.

I was gonna say it looks like he used tundra taxidermy for his mounts like Alaskan did.

Must have spent all his money on those guns
