May seem like a stupid question, but I am as green as they get when it comes to trapping. Where can you sell caster glands. Do they sell them at the fur auctions.

Some fur buyers will buy castor glands at fur auctions, it just depends on who is there and what they are looking for. And castor glands are the scent glands animals like beaver have. I use just a small amount on a stick by my traps to attract beaver. It also works for coons

Can u use the caster straight out of the glands for coons, or do you have top mix with other stuff first?

Straight beaver castor works great for coons.
