Just from talking to the guy at the shop, only fisher, marten and cats will be worth anything, but he wouldn't say what. Dunno. :?:

Swamp things are looking pretty bleak on the early prices. Here in upstate NY this is about the going rates I have seen so far locally.
Beaver: $5 to 15
took in one super blanket that measured 73" that one was $16
coon : $5 -8
muskrats: $2-4
mink: $8-10
fisher $20-30
red fox $5-10
grey fox $5-8
yotes $ 5

best I can tell you so far hope this helps.

No wonder my buddy got out of trappin years ago lol. He did it for a living for a while and had told me prices went way down and he wasn't getting much for all his work. So after skinning, stretching, salting etc... he was only getting a few bucks a fur. Guess I wont become a millionare hahahaha, but will love doin it NO DOUBT! Cant wait to get started next season!
