    I was thinking about buying a few green pelts from a local trapper. They are just skinned and frozen. What do yall think coyote, grey fox and red fox are worth with good fur? Just don't have any experience buying it and don't want to get taken. Just buying a few to tan myself. Let me know what you think and thanks in advance for any advice. Seth
  2. coyote $6-$8, Grey fox-$6-8, Red Fox-maybe $10.

    Thanks everyone. Do you have to get a furbuyer's liscence if you are just buying a couple? anyways he is wanting 20 each on everything and it seems he might be asking a little too much.

    you do not need a fur buyers license if you are buying for your personal use, you only need one when buying and reselling..:thumb:

    From looking at Mark Penn's post it looks like you can leagly buy tanned pelts, taxidermy mounts, or whole carcases of legaly taken furbearers for personaly use. Does this mean an individual resident of Arkansas can not buy a skinned out beaver hide from a buddy to tan himself to make a hooped beaver display?
    If so, we need to change the law!!!

    Yarnammurt, those 20 pound coons are scarace (sp) as hen's teeth in Arkansas. I am 65 and have only seen 2 that went on a set of scales and actually weighed 20+ pounds. Most of them were like that 5# bass I caught last month; it never saw a scale. LOL!

    No, it means you can buy something if you're going to keep it for yourself. You need the dealer license if you are then going to turn around and sell what you bought to someone else.
