The mink and muskrat don't look all that great. The red fox and beaver are about what I expected. Our NAFA guy is coming through tomorrow and I only have 1 fox to give him. Better than nothing I suppose...... :roll: :lol:

TR these prices will rise some when both auction houses have their sales. More buyers. I just hope that they can clear the fur and not have a repeat of last year.
