FUR AUCTION MANAGER’S REPORT
Hello everyone. Well it’s that time a year once again to start chasing furbearers around. The Colorado Trappers Association will again be having It’s fur auction on February 13 & 14 2013. We moved the sale a week later and also we are having the sale on a Wed. and Thurs. instead of Thurs. and Fri. Hopefully by moving these dates we will be accommodating more sellers and buyers. The sale last year went really well and prices were good, so with any luck the prices will remain strong. Look for the Ad in the trapper for more information. If you have any questions fill free to contact one of our agents. — Bill Curns (719)749-2151, Todd Fairchild (970)210-0507 or Greg Ashmore(719)743-2552. — Greg Ashmore
