FUR SALE DIRECTOR’S REPORT

The sale was fairly successful considering lower prices on most furs. Once trappers accepted the fact that prices were down, most bids were accepted and there were very few no sales. A big thanks to all who helped make the sale a success. Thanks also to all the buyers who traveled in bad weather. Following are sale results. Averages are based on the sale of the worst junk to the very best. Prime, well-handled skins sold considerably better than average.
