One of our buyers in kansas will not even buy oppossum, the other will give $1.00 for large silvers only.

I haven't seen anyone who would buy a possum in a long time.


What do they do with possum fur anyway?

Maybe they ship it overseas where it is given an exotic name and marketed as a luxury item. They did that with skunk fur back in the 20s and soon folks were paying big bucks for its fur to make coats. But then they made them start using the real name and the market dropped way off.

Three possums and 50 cents will get you a cup of coffee or thrown out!
