The first major wild fur auction of the year took place earlier this week, and the results should excite trappers and predator hunters. In fact, Fur Harvesters Auction, Inc. says this season could be “one for the record books.”
“Fur Harvesters Auction Inc. just concluded its largest and most successful opening fur auction,” an FHA news release states. “In keeping with tradition, North Bay once again was the first to hold an international wild fur auction starting off the season and setting the market with strong levels on all species.
“We had a very large number of buyers attending from China and there is no question who is driving the market. Chinese buyers dominated all day. Buyer attendance was the highest on record for our season opening sale. It is evident that this season is shaping up to be another one for the record books.”
