I ran into Randy Smith trapping today on Cordry Lake. Randy and his uncle have been trapping both lakes this fall and winter taking mostly muskrat and some beaver. The warm weather and no ice have allowed the trappers to continue working into the winter. Randy told me that the going price for a muskrat pelt is $7. Many times they clean and freeze the pelts and wait for the market/auction to pay a better fee.
