Pricey fox pelts.

Post by Elmer » 01 Jul 2018, 5:37 pm

Whent for a nice Sunday arvo drive to Hahndorf today and did a bit of the tourist thing, anyway dropped into a shop that sells just Aussie stuff leather goods etc.
As I was having a look around I noticed several fox pelts on a hook and went to investigate, nice pelts until I saw the price tags F..K ME prices STARTED at $150 all the way up to $200 for a bloody pelt.
Is this what tourists shops are charging for a pelt these days?
cheers.

I heard that about a year ago. But try and sell a fox skin, nobody wants them.

I think if you could sell a good finished product there is a market. Just gotta find it.
I shot a beautiful fox last night and left it to rot.

I looked after a mates young dog who was going through the chewing stage, he found a fox skin I had tanned in my shed and chewed it to bits. I would have been cranky if it had cost me $200.

Wait till the animal lib/PETA mob hear of it. They'll put him out of business quick smart and claim foxes have been here so long they should be classified as native and protected.

Hmmm,considering the shops been there for 20 years I know of,and he's been selling pelts there as long as I've been going in,I think its safe to say he's not going anywhere...
