It’s two large sent glands at base of tail , headed up towards stomach area. Used in high end fragrances and believe it or not food flavorings.

Gotcha. So why doesn’t everyone do it when they trap a beaver or it’s hard to get out?

I think most do. Any that I know. With the fur prices what they are the skull and castors are worth as much or more than the fur

That's 16 pounds. and averaged $76.39 a pound.

 

First number is the quantity and second is average price.

It's not a huge sale and it's in NY. Bobcats are taken here but I'd bet most that are are held because they aren't overly common. If I got in a area where trapping them was legal I'd get a wall hanger done. Like I'm doing with my fisher

This course is a bear. I hate writing more than anything lol, my handwriting is atrocious. Pro tip: Heres the book in PDF, you can search for the terms in the question and jump to the correct section. Saves a ton of flipping

Won't help you when you come across a vicious coyote that wants to eat your face and you can't remember what to do because you didn't read the textbook

The prize at the end of the rainbow wouldn't be as valuable........you got this!
And then knock down that red population you have at your Dad's property.

Sent my completed packet out yesterday. Will advise when i receive my certificate. That's assuming i passed!

I agree, the handwriting requirement made this difficult for me. Was tempted to have one of my daughters write my answers in.

Too bad they aren't worth much these days. If fur got a decent price, I would really consider it and create a nice little western hunt trip fund from it.

Agree totally ....there really isn't much in return for the investment. I am hoping to get my certificate and try a few sets for Coons before the season is over Feb. 15

I am just looking to trap 2 coons and turn them into hats for my boys.

It ain’t about the money guys , it’s about the challenge.... at least it is for me. You’ll never get rich by trapping.
