Default Wolf Trappers: Wolf Fur

There has always been a tendency by trappers to always skin wolves for taxidermy, yet very time consuming. GFW has a customer that specializes in wolf fur for utility purpose. At NAFA many would be wolf fur users shy-ed away from using wolf fur because the fees put the fur out of reach, auction commission, packing and handling, CITIES BS, and who knows what else.

GFW will buy both taxi wolves and fur wolves, but advise people to taxi skin just the whites/arctic type and blacks, although Iím sure any nice grade 3XL is a sell.

Just another option.you might be able to do half hour wolves now... 15 minutes anyone???!!!

Call or show up to inquire further.

I'd like to know what kind of price range those wolves would sell for?

If a 225$ taxidermy wolf drops to 150$, I don't mind loosing 75$ to save myself 3 hours of work. But if it drops to 50$, then I will do the work.

If guys can get a coyote done in sub 3 min times Iím sure a wolf in 30 is reasonable
