D9: Report from the Northeast Regional Coyote Hunt

This year we had 771 hunters and they took 27 coyotes.  First Place went to John Krzan from Montdale with a 46.60 pounder, and he also took the daily prize for Saturday.  The daily prize for Sunday was taken by Don Spencer of Dallas.  The Kimber .243 with Zeiss scope was won by Betty Sutliff of Damascus.  District 9 would like to thank all the hunters who participated, the Triton Hose Co. for putting on a delicious meal, and all the member volunteers who helped with the day’s festivities.

NAFA Wild Fur Update – January 2016

January 12, 2016

Kopenhagen Fur has just concluded its January offering of 2.7 million mink, which sold 70% at prices declining 50% to 60% compared to one year ago. Unfortunately, for most of our wild fur articles, these results will have a negative impact.

In our upcoming January sale we will be offering a limited number of our fresh wild fur articles such as muskrats, coyotes and sables. As well, all of the unsold wild fur skins will be available to the trade.
