What's a 25 cent yote look like??? A person has to know its a crappy skin, no??? A guy could make more by just cutting the tail and 4 feet off and selling them on ebay (most weeks).

According to the guy who originally posted the prices, many trappers brought in either poor quality fur or poorly put up fur. He said of all the lots, the few beaver brought in were by far and away the worst put up fur he's ever seen. It was odd to see beaver at this sale considering beaver season just started on December 26th.
