A lot of trappers will hold off until after the first of December and some much longer.
You could get away with being a bit earlier on some species than others, some wonít be worth much when fully prime so you can imagine what that may do to the value if you were to take that pelt sooner.
If youíre out there to get out there, donít let anyone tell you on a forum that youíre doing it wrong or you shouldnít be. If you choose to take an animal early you probably know full well the monetary consequences. If you shame someone for rushing out on opening day because of excitement, time, or to get rhythm......seems a bit anti to me, always has.
If you think Iím wrong you should help the ata do a better job of educating people on the value of taking prime  vs. unprime/pastprime, not trying to keep people out of the woods.
