Does anyone have some typical average prices that furs are selling for in the Canton/Peoria area?

I know there are 10 -15 coons takng over my 36 acres. Been watching em all year. The farmer next door thinks the deer are eating all his corn but i have watched the feast from my treestand. If they were worth it i would shoot them for the money.  My concern is that the last ime i did that a few years ago they only brought $5-$10 and thats not worth killing them for.

Saw the post and got the scoop from my dad on his fur selling.  He sold to the traveling fur buyer from Groenewold Fur & Wool (located in Forreston, IL) when they made a Knox County stop on November 30.  Dad sold 33 coons for a total of $479.  Top Coon was a pair at $32 while low was 4 coons at $1 apiece and they wouldn’t buy a couple of the smaller ones.  The breakdown was as follows: 2-$32, 3-$28, 9-$20, 6-$14, 9-$7 and the 4 at $1.  Dad was strictly coon trapping this year so no idea on other pelts.  Planning a blog some time this month on “Meandering” to share Dad’s 2013 trapping season with further details and pictures.  Hope you’ll take a look.  Talk to you later.  Troy

  Most fur prices are dropping..Have went down 25 to 40 percent from the november prices.  They say trouble in China and unusually warm in Europe.  No one really knows until the big auctions start.
