Ive heard a few different prices for muskrats just curious on how much they are worth. Ive hear anywhere from 3 bucks all the way up to 13.

i'm paying 2 bucks across the board on the carcass for good rats. probably could get 3 if they're skinned and dried.  Don't know who in the world would be paying anything over 4 bucks. They'd lose their A** trying to sell them again.

So if you want to wait till u get more can you just put them in a bag and a freezer will they still be good? or is there a better way to protect the hide while you continue to get more?

just as long as you don't stack them. make sure they are laid out away from each other and then only when they are completely frozen stack them on top of each other. If you stack them when they're warm the middle ones don't freeze right away and can rot even in your freezer.

I got 4 dollars per again yesterday when I sold.  My buyer is north and east of Aberdeen and if you want PM me for his number.  Maybe you can meet somewhere.

 Groeneys has a truck that comes around.  Their website:  http://www.gfwco.com/  I have always had fair offers from them.  or there is also the option of shipping to FHA or NAFA, there are agents for both in ND, just go to their websites and get the names of the agents and the pickup schedules.  Just dont take the first lowball offer you see.  Check around, trapperman.com or sullivansline.com would be better places to ask what you should expect for prices than here.

Stupid question. What do you need to hunt muskrats as far as a license to be LEGAL. lol
Y'all call me a paranoid gun-nut now, but we all know who you're going to be running to for help when the zombies show up.
