As we are into a new year, we wish all a safe and healthy, and productive time in the fur harvesting field. Please obey all rules and regulations so there may no be a repeat of early December. One more case like that will probably make some drastic changes in our laws. If you are too ashamed to tag your traps, don’t set them, and study your set location before making it.

Thanks to the buyers and to all who helped make our Dec. 18 sale a success. From the comments from the sellers, most were very satisfied. A special Thanks to W.R. and Ed for a job well done. List below are the results.

By the time you read this, the January auction will be history, but remember Feb. 19, 2011 as it will be our final sale for the season. Have a safe and enjoyable season and take a youth on your line.

— Roger D. Macy
