ANNUAL FALL FUR AUCTION REPORT
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2011
The 2011 Vermont Trapper’s Fall Fur Auction will be held at the Whitcomb High School in Bethel, Vermont on Saturday, December 10, 2011.
The doors will open at 6:00 am and the auction will begin at 9:00 am. There will be a five percent (5%) commission on all fur sold.
If you are not happy with the price offered, you may withdraw your fur and there will be no charge. Lots will be given out on a first come, first served basis. No green fur, please. However, if you have deer hides to sell, you may bring them and conduct business outside the building and no commission will be charged. Moose and deer antlers are welcomed at this auction and will be sold under the same guidelines as the fur.
We welcome and encourage trappers from other states to attend and sell their fur at our auction. Many do and have said that the prices they receive at the VTA auctions are much better than they could get in their home state. All that we require is that you are a current member of any State or National trapping association. Support those organizations that support you.
For more information on this auction, contact Dan Olmstead at (802) 464-6344 or Bruce Baroffio at (802) 485-4051.
