NAFA Vs. FHA

Postby LeviM » Mon Dec 08, 2008 8:17 am

Anyone have any prior experience shipping your furs to either auction? I am looking for pros or cons of one or both auctions. Would you recommend shipping to these auctions or sell to a local fur buyer? Any thoughts, experinces or opinions??

Good post Levi.

I am also interested in this. I have never sold to the auction. I have only sold to a local buyer. I am too impatient to wait for my money. However, maybe it is something a guy needs to do.

The big show has some advantages. I believe your top animals get top prices, the lower end does not get much attention. I would sell the good stuff up north and the marginal products to a local buyer and not even put the time into putting them up unless you thuroughly enjoy the process. You are money ahead with the shot up, broken down, pour fur in general to sell on the round and put the money in the gas tank. take the time with the good stuff and either ship it or drop it off at one of the many pick up points. I do not have a view on one being better than another. I have been told it can be a good idea to watch the market and time when you ship. I have often heard on average that coyotes are good to get in early, first sale of the year, and cats later, spring sale. I think all bets are off right now. I think it would be worth the experience to take 10 of you best hides and send them up next year and go through the process. This will teach you a bunch, they will give you a lot number and you can watch the sale on line. You will see the grade of each hide sold.

We debated last season sending our furs out to the auctions, and I afterwards I am more than happy we sold locally. If you didn't have top quality fur it either sold for peanuts or nothing at all.
