How many of you sell by-products from the critters you trap and if so where and what?

I don't sell it but I use some parts of several different critters to make bait out of. I save/use, beaver meat and castor, rat meat, fox anal glands, and a bit of skunk essence. There are a few other things I may save/use this year if I get the chance.

ADC,

I don't mess with any weasel family members glands, I sell the whole carcasses to Trapper Art, he lives 10 minutes away. I can get the skinny on it if you want it, Art is a good fella will tell you just about anything once he knows ya (ifn' ya ask that is)

lil'bit,

75% of my stuff goes to a friend of mine here that has a lure business, the rest goes to whomever is willing to pay the most. Sometimes t-man, ebay, the paper, etc. wta
