    I was at a garage sale and they had a genuine beaver pelt for $5. Does anyone know what these are worth and if I should resell it.

    Just keep in mind we are talking about animals here. As for size it is about 2.75 feet tall and 2.5 feet wide

    This is starting to sound really naughty but what should I use to soften my beaver.

    ive seen them around 4 or 5 bucks

    there was a table at a gun show bout three years ago with nothing but furs and pelts

    rabits were like 2 dollars, it was cool and thought about getting my mom one because the fur was soft and it was cheap

    then i see a pencil box full of long skinny white things....the tag reads "coon dicks, one dollar"

    i halted my movement, stared at it, then asked the lady behind the table if the translation was literal

    she said that racoon members have a bone in them much like a whale and cat.....i then had to ask what people used them for

    she replies tooth-picks....then wanted to know if wanted to buy one, i passed but some good-ol boy at the gun show didnt as he had one in his mouth looking at the glock table..........gross

    *EDIT* i see it says beaver, i was thinking of squirrels and more common game

    When I was your age, I thought of beaver all the time. Very little has changed.
