After 17 years ,I had to slow down, sooo Claudine and I have sold AMERICAN ANIMAL CONTROL to Doug and Debbie Severson .
Fine folks and we are happy they live nearby.He is Pres. of River Valley Trappers and a good trapper and fur handler in his own
right.Debbie has run various bui %&%sness ventures also...
With that....The supplies will remain at our house and we will help with sales until they construct a new bldg. to house it all.
I trust you folks will welcome them and be as kind to them in this as you have been to Momma and me...
We ve made many good friends and thank God for you...NOW we can sit and visit and talk trappin till-the-cows-come-home.
and hopefully help the ATA some more.
GOD Bless
Dub and Claudine

Mr . Crandall, in my limited experience, bobcats & otter can be frozen whole unskinned & sold at the state trapper’s auction or some local buyers & surprisingly bring a better price than some that are put up on stretchers & all the work involved with that.

Bobcats and Otter are what are most commonly bought unskinned and can have good value in that condition.

I did some beaver trapping in Pulaski county & the lady in charge said they never run out of money. It’s only $ 10 a tail, but an extra roughly $250  at my disposal means more traps or supplies. That $10 is well more than the green skinned fur. When you factor in being paid for catching the critter & castor roughly $5 / oz , beaver are definitely worth going after unless you have to hand carry all you steel a long way through rough terrain.

In White County they usually run out of bounty money by March or April, rice and bean farmers usually keep me working throughout the year, When the beaver bounty money comes in I'll use it to expand, more traps, update or repair equipment. haven't even bothered with fur since it bottomed out, may need to start looking at that again but I'm gonna say the bounty works for me anyway.

My opinion is that the bounty is a good thing, and I would like to have it here in the counties in the northwest corner of the state, but that is not the case.  The only issue that I have with the bounty is from what I have heard, and therefore I feel that it needs closer monitoring.  For instance, I have heard from reliable trappers in eastern Arkansas of out of state trappers, some from as far away as New York, that have came to Arkansas to trap and brought beaver tails from their home state, and then turned them in here and collected the bounty, along with bounty on those they catch while here.  I don't like more red tape, but neither do I like something such as this happening.  Maybe before paying the bounty, the remittance personnel should require the trapper prove residence in Arkansas, i.e.: paid tax receipt, vehicle insurance, paid water bill, etc.  Haven't heard this in a few years, so this may be the only thing the low beaver prices have solved.

the bounty give me an incentive to target more beaver. I think it does help to keep the beaver at a controlled level.
