Help Wanted:If you know how to skin and prep a coyote, prep a cape (split lips, turn ears, etc.) we may have a job for you. We hire prep specialists 12 months a year. Send resume to: MHF, Box 8918, Moscow, Idaho 83843

Notes for Raw Furs:If you know how to prepare skins for life-size, taxidermy purposes, you can get much more than market value for many of the furs you harvest.

You need to know how to skin out feet for taxidermy, split lips and eye-lids, and turn ears. You can then salt and dry the skins. None with holes in the heads, nor any with large hole(s) in body. MUST HAVE GOOD FEET WITH CLAWS AND #1 QUALITY FUR.

Contact us with what you have and the price you are looking for.
We are always interested in rare and unusual animals such as white otter, white beaver, black nutria, white muskrats, etc. Call us before skinning these animals. When you call, tell us what price you want. Do not call us for "offers."

We buy stretched and dried furs and castors 12 months per year:Current market prices. Because of the volatility of the market in recent years, we do not issue a price list for all items.
