I remember we had a post similar to this last summer, so I figured with all the season over now would be a good time to start the topic again.

In the NAFA Feb. sale I had a red fox sell for $120 and a coyote for $175.

Share your top prices and pictures if possible.

Still $85 each for a couple green male fisher a few years ago to Groeney. Haven't hit it right with having reds or fishers on the last two sales and coyotes have all graded semi lately. I wish I was still selling fishers. Next year I will be after them again so I'm sure I'll best my high pelt price or the market will tank. Probably the latter. I did have a few coon in the high $70s this year though, which I thought was fantastic.

This year I had a marten sell for $280,and I had 4 more all in the same lot at $250 ea.
Right now Marten is by far the most valuable of any pelt on the market given the sq.inches.

I had a bobcat at NAFA a few years ago that went for $900.00 after the local fur buyer swore it wasn't worth $500.00 ! A coyote brought me $150.00 and a cross fox $100.00 years ago I can't remember what I was paid for a few of the better beaver pelts I believe it was just over $100.00 to a local buyer .
