How many of you sell by-products from the critters you trap and if so where and what?

I don't sell it but I use some parts of several different critters to make bait out of. I save/use, beaver meat and castor, rat meat, fox anal glands, and a bit of skunk essence. There are a few other things I may save/use this year if I get the chance.

I don't sell it, but I do use a good bit of it for my own stuff, like bait.

Most of mine have been mentioned. Musk, bait, and the rare meal of something exotic while my wife is away...

ADC,

I don't mess with any weasel family members glands, I sell the whole carcasses to Trapper Art, he lives 10 minutes away. I can get the skinny on it if you want it, Art is a good fella will tell you just about anything once he knows ya (ifn' ya ask that is)
