Post Future trapper? (Me) Raccoon

I have trapped coon before and wondering if I would like to get into it for conservation.Im planning to do it with dog proof traps.Is there any money into selling raccoon fur.I might get into coyotes later on. Any tips on skinning,stretching,and processing the fur to sell is appreciated.Also I don't know where to sell the fur at we do have a local farmers market but due to work I cannot go.Any extra supplies you think I might need tell me.

Thanks,

Eli

I don't trap so will let one of the guys who traps answer your questions. As a suggestion, if you list your state, anybody responding will be able to give you a more specific answer tailored to your specific state as opposed to some generic information about fur buyers. Also, many states seem to have trapper associations which would provide a wealth of relevant information.
