Petska Fur was in Sheridan last Friday, I sold all my coon
at $10 each, asked him what bobcats were bringing and he
said 2-500 but that it was early yet.

How many sold? Word on the street is theres not very many cats being caught this year.
Prices will go up as the season ends. I won't sell mine until the first of March.

There were about 35 cats. The thing is that the auction's that are going on arent changing the prices, usually they do. Top's are still down by $400 this compared to last year. I sold 3 cats today and averaged $350, but I only got $175 for a narrow bellied tom that was kind of redish in color. I would almost bet my money that the cat prices arent gonna go much higher than 500 for top lots.

I sold mine today but remember these are central Texas bobcats and they were more females than big males and they averaged out at 93.00 dollars and the last 3 I shot last week were not skinned so that knocked the average down too.

This is the primary market for lynx and lynx cats which are used for trimming, mostly on black mink coats. Wholesalers believe that the most expensive lynx cats may need a slight reduction in price.

I copied this from the nafa web site.

It really didnt matter to me I only trapped cats for 4 weeks. I guess it will mean more cats next year.

The western cats bring lots of money, but one thing that many people don't consider is how many trapline miles are put on vehicles catching those high-dollar cats.

I keep a record of mileage every day for tax purposes. I know exactly how many miles I went and the fuel and other expenses I have. So far my coyotes and other fur has paid for my expenses with about 200 left.

Exactly, Dusty. My point is that you guys put in LOTS of miles and effort and darn sure don't get rich doing it in spite of the high prices paid for the fur. Vehicles take a pretty good beating also. For those who just see the dollar signs, there is A LOT behind getting your hands on the high-dollar fur out west.
