Please bring your trapping or hunting license with you when you come to sell fur. I can't purchase your fur without it. All beavers, bobcat, and otter need to be "checked in" and you'll need the "tags" in order to sell them. ALWAYS CALL BEFORE BRINGING YOUR FUR TO MY PLACE. My phone is 304-483-1079. By appointment only please! Please do not show up unexpected. Please do not thaw your fur until after you've scheduled a day and time.

Know the following before selling fur...

  • What is "Green" fur?... Properly skinned, rolled flesh-in / fur-out, and kept frozen until time to sell. If you are selling green fur, please do not take it out of the freezer until 24 hours before selling. If you take it out of the freezer too long before selling there is a good chance it will taint before I have a chance to buy it. If your pelts smell tainted or rotten, I will NOT buy them.

 

  • What is "Finished" fur?... Hides that have been properly scraped (not too much, not too little), stretched on the proper size board, and completely dried. If you plan to finish (scrape, stretch, and dry) your own fur before selling, make sure you know how to do it RIGHT! While properly finished pelts bring more money, poorly handled fur is almost worthless. If you're not sure how to properly handle your pelts, please consider buying the Matt Jones DVD that I sell, "After the Catch"... or you can stop by my fur shed sometime and watch me put up my own fur.... so PLEASE don't assume you know how to properly handle fur if you've never done it before, (or if it's been a long time.)

 

  • What does "In the Round" mean?... An animal that has not been skinned. We do NOT buy un-skinned animals.

 

  • What does "Well-handled fur" mean?...That you skinned the animal less than 24 hours after catching it, and cleaned all the mud, dirt, or burs from the fur. It also means that if you decided to "finish" the hide completely, you did not over scrape or under scrape it, and that you also stretched it to the proper width and shape.

 

 

Please bring your trapping or hunting license with you with you come to sell fur. I can't purchase your fur without it. All beavers, bobcat, and otter need to be "checked in" and you'll need the "tags" in order to sell them. ALWAYS CALL BEFORE BRINGING YOUR FUR TO MY PLACE. My phone is 304-483-1079. By appointment only please! Please do not show up unexpected. Please do not thaw your fur until after you've scheduled a day and time.
