Northern Saskatchewan Trappers Assoc Information Bulletin

by ahnationtalk on November 18, 201921 Views

Please be advised that North American Fur Auctions (NAFA), the world’s oldest auction house, is not accepting new furs.

NAFA is not in a position to guarantee a wild fur collection in 2020. NAFA has expressed that it will keep wild fur consignors informed of further developments and more details on paying outstanding prompt payments from August as they arise.

The Northern Saskatchewan Trappers Association understands this cultural and economic crisis and the difficulty this is causing to the First Nations and trapping industry in northern Saskatchewan. Our group is currently in the process of seeking new buyers.

For example, the Fur Harvesters Auction Inc. has indicated that the 2020 season will once again see big demand for most all coyotes produced across this continent with premiums being paid for heavy western sections as well big eastern coyotes. They have met with most all the major players in the coyote trimming business and have solid commitments of support from them for our 2020 auctions. They have had inquiries from the trade on sables and expect to see prices come in around our March 2019 levels. Lynx will be in demand.

In the meantime, fur harvesters are encouraged not to trap and sell early, damaged, late fur, and non-prime goods before December 15th, 2019.

The NSTA Annual Fur Table will continue to be held on December 14th, 9 am – 5 pm, at Parkland Hall, Prince Albert.
