Trapper & Predator Caller‘s fur market expert, Serge Lariviére, says trappers have reason to be excited after Fur Harvesters Auction and North American Fur Auctions both opened with record-breaking sales.
“Everybody knows the fur market is a real roller coaster, and over the years, we have seen some major ups and downs,” Lariviére writes in the April-May 2012 Fur Market Report. “Enthusiasm changes from one year to the next, and until the season is over, it is hard to know exactly what will happen. However, I do have one thing to say for once: the enthusiasm for wild fur is hot!”
