OK, Maybe that scary of a surprise. But, not even $3.00 to $5.00? I guess this means the Russian economy has officially tanked. Good thing I avoided raccoons this season.

That sucks! It just shows how vulnerable to a single country specific wild fur can be. I guess I'll have coons carrying over. Could be NAFA's May 2014 sale all over again...

Being selfish, Im much more worried about my bobcats..... :| While its true the buyers weren't there with money amounts, I doubt FHA wanted the heat for selling coons for a $5.00 average. ....I know I would rather go another sale or two as to going less then $10 averages. I hope NAFA holds the line and dont sell to low.....

I think rats were $6 and change. Remember, FHA is not even close with the number of coons offered as NAFA. That coupled with the fact that they were the first auction is probably why they went unsold. I think ey did the right thing by holding them.
