Janet Hodge of the West Virginia Trappers Association dropped me an e-mail to report on the first fur sale of the 2009 calendar year. She quoted the fur harvesters’ press release on the subject:
“Raccoon remained largely unsold, with only the better quality goods being moved.Â No bobcats were offered for sale; however,Â there remains a good demand for larger beaver,
fisher, muskrat, Eastern red fox and gray fox.”
The complete release, as well as sale amounts,Â can be found at the Fur Harvesters’ Web site.Â Adobe Acrobat is required to read the .PDF file.
