Trapping: and Selling of Furs
Is Good Side Line for Farmers

I.IHHI Pfiies—Trapper SlmuM Wait I mil Cold Weatlu-r Sets

With the approach of cold weather
the thrifty farmer in almost any see
lion of the country can undertake
some form of fur trapping with profit.
A knowledge of the fur-hearing ani
mals found in his vicinity and how
to catch them and treat their pelts
reveals a source of income often over
looked. For the hoy in the country
nothing offers a more delightful
diver-ion than a trapping expedition,
particularly if it entails a money re
ward Where the farm itself affords
little opportunity for trapping, an
accessible stream or wooded tract is
generally to be found near-by where
fur-hearing animals can be caught.
While the fur resources of the coun
try have been diminishing steadily,
prices have been rising. The war
also has been an important factor in
this upward trend.
Wait ITitil Fur Is Bight.
The person about to engage in pelt
gathering must understand at the
'outset the necessity of postponing
trapping until the animals' fur is at
, its best. The pelt of a mink, for ex
ample, killed in September might not
be worth more than 50 cents, where
las if the same animal were killed In
November or December its pelt might
bring $lO.
Speaking generally, trapping
should not begin until cold weather
has set in—-that is, until late Novem
ber or December —for most sections
of the country. Two principal excep
tions to the rule are the muskrnt and
beaver, whose fur ia not at its best
until February or March.
In addition to the widely distrio
uted fur-bearing animals mentioned
below each region has many others
to lure the pelt collector. The prices
given here are necessarily only ap
prox'mations. Each trapper mtist
bear in mind that the size and condi
tion of the individual pelt, as well as
other factors, will have much to do
with the sum it will bring.
Skunk Pelts Valuable.
The skunk, one of the most com
mon fur bearers, is found in every
state of the Union. Large skunk
skins probably will bring the trapper
from $1 to $5 this season, while the
pelts of the little spotted skunk will
| bring from 10 to 80 cents. The
[Weasel, of one variety or another, is
to be found in practically all sections
jof the country. Formerly the brown
j pelts were considered worthless, but
j with the rise in fur prices brown
i pelts should net the trapper front 10
to 25 cents each, while the white
j pelts will bring from 52 cents to
; $1.50.
An animal not to be found in large
numbers, but native to regions north,
south, east, and west, is the mink.
When in prime condition its skin, it'
secured in the north, should bring
from $4 to SB, while a skin secured
in the south should command $2 to
$3. Likewise, the raccoon living in
the north produces a better pelt than
the one living in the south. Good
raccoon skins are worth from $1.50
to $3.75 each to the trapper.
Many persons, particularly city
dwellers, may be surprised to learn
that many foxes still nre trapped in
this country. lied fox pelts, obtain
able in widely distributed areas in
the "Northern states, should bring
from $lO to S3O each this season,
while the gray fox found in the South
ern states will bring from $1,50 to
$3 a pelt.
An example of returns that can be
secured from fur resources long over
looked is found In the fact that the
people of Oregon netted approxi
mately $50,000 from mole skins last
year, following trapping demonstra
tions by representatives of the bio
logical survey of the United States
Department, of Agriculture. The
demonstrators showed that while
millions of European mole skins were
used by fur manufacturers in Amer
ica before ihe war. the skins of some
American moles, especially the large,
common variety of western Washing
ton and Oregon, an- larger and have
better texture than those from Eu
■ rope.
Farmers' Bulletin 832. published
by the United States Department of
I Agriculture, describes the best kinds
of mole traps, how to set tliem, and
gives other information. The meth
ods discussed are especially adapted
•to the Pacific coast states, but with
modifications will apply to all locali
ties where moles are found.
Muski-nts Still Numerous.
\\ bile minks, raccoons, and skunks
have become somewhat scarce in cer
tain localities, muskrats have nut
diminished in numbers except in
i places where the marshes have been
drained. These animals multiply
i much more rapidly than many other

Though the price of cottontail rab

a pound for dry cased skins this
source of income should not he over
looked by the trapper-farmer, as fre
quently a large number of these ani
mals can be caught in the course of
the winter. There is frequently i
good market for the rabbit meat also.
Among other fur-bearing animals
more or less widely distributed
throughout the country are opos
sums. badgers, and. for'western re
gions. coyotes and wolves.
If the farmer who temporarily
turns trap|ter is to realize the best
prices for pelts, he must learn the
proper methods of handling theni.
Most skins should he "cased" for the
market. A cased skin is one removed
from the carcass after slitting the
hind legs but not the belly of the ani
mal. thereby leaving a tubular shaped
pelt The skin is left with the fur
turned in and dried on a stretcher
made of thin board sharpened to a
point, or of heavy galvanized wire.
The biological survey of the U. S
department of agriculture furnishes
on application information regarding
the trapping of fur-bearing animals,
laws relating to the subject, and the
preparation of pelts. It also suppli's
inquiries with lists ot buyers tor va
rious kinds of pelts.
