I tore up a 07 dodge my first 2 yrs doing it and didn't catch much. My wife was not impresseed at all!!!!:) Now I have a different truck and all is working farely well. I sell my coyotes as I go along to help off-set the cost of repairs and equipment. This is by far my best cat year and by far the most money I have put out. I'm not gonna jinx myself by saying how many I have right now but I will post a pic with them and the sale results in March.

That is one thing that sucks about trapping cats, but I have learned in the past that a guy has to find those pockets of cats and that sure helps.

Good deal. Right now I have 13 so I hope this sale on the 16th holds that trend. Everything I hear tells me that cat numbers are down and it's gonna be a sellers market.
Good job on those cats!!

Petska is the buyer down here too. It's funny how prices change with the same buyer based on region. They typically pay anywhere from 50 to a high of 200 for cats down here. One has to wonder if there is really that much difference in fur quality. I sold two this year and averaged 125. Which is why I am learning to properly put up the hides so I can just send them to the auction myself.

I won't deal with Petska on my cats. Let him look at em last month and he low balled everyone of em. Tried to get me to stretch a cats belly to 10". White to white. Tried to tell me that my cats were mainly C's. I've never caught a C out of this country. Just my opinion.

The only time I would even consider selling a cat to Petska is if I was hard up for money. I have never seen him pay a fair price on a cat...around here anyway.

I'll post a pic as soon as I figure out how. I'm not gonna bash anyone it's just I can't deal with them as well. If you want to see my cats, great if you want to give me a fair market bid, great. John Graham will be here on the third of march. We'll see how it goes.

my friend got 750$ for big male, but only 50 for stained female, from him. I'll relay the news that you wouldn't want to sell a cat to him.
