Provided at the bottom of this page is a list of links to places where you can market your fur. If you’re a new trapper, you may prefer to sell your fur to a local buyer, who can provide tips and advice on how to handle your fur properly and produce high quality pelts. Most of the links provided below require that fur be skinned, fleshed and dried before shipping. Selling fur unskinned, or ‘in the round’ usually takes place locally, if at all. Another option is to sell fur at a state auction. These are usually run by state trappers associations and can offer a great chance to tell stories with other trappers and learn tips about fur preparation.
