You will get the most money shipping them to NAFA but you need to know how to put up your own fur... well. I usually take mine to Johnsons Fur in Wilmar. Good, fair people. They send theirs to big auctions so they take a cut based on what they expect to get. They will also take animals in the round, especially mink, rats and beaver. Fox and yotes are easy to do so I do them myself, same with mink and rats. Beaver and coon are a fatty greasy pain so it's worth the cost to let someone else do the nasty work. I usually skin but do not flesh and stretch these to save freezer space. I'm thinking of getting back into the sport this fall. I'm by Monticello, if you want to come out and run rats a couple of days I'd be happy to show you some tricks of the trade. PM me in Oct. I'd recommend you start with muskrats. They're easy to trap, skin and kill. Equipment is not expensive.
