Nafa fur pick up is April 3rd so we finished up the little bit of fur that Brad had caught to send in.

Image
here is his yote that he caught and his kitty.

Image
belly shot.

Image
3 beavers

Image
and his 2 marten.

In total with my averages from last sale and I cut some off, he is looking close to $700.00. Maybe more or less. What I'm interested in is the yote and what it will bring. Feel free to chime in on the yote.

That is a good yote. Light colored back, which is a plus, and a good light colored belly. They don't come much better I wouldn't think. I can't imagine that not going in the heavy region. Grade would be tough to tell, but I imagine it is going to be good (no less than a I-II I'd imagine). Maybe you could help out a little with info there? It will likely go as a pale color (possibly even a GC but I doubt that one), and a 1-2 clarity. In this last NAFA auction he'd be looking at the very least $125 for a II grade, and if I was a betting man I'd say it will have a better grade than that, so he'd be looking at closer to $150+. I doubt it will bring that much come the next auction, but who knows what will happen. Regardless of what happens, I'd say that yote will probably be in the first several lots of the heavy section.

No Jase, Brad did everything but the beaver. For some reason I get stuck with them :roll: Russ I sure hope the yote does well for him as he is now laid off from work and can use the extra cash.

Brad needs to be complimented on his fur put ups, nice job on them. I sure hope he gets a good price for them.

Very nice. I think your fur should do really well at the auction. Hey how did you guys do on the beavers at the last auction? Decent price? Did they all sell? I am having trouble logging into NAFA right now.
