OSTA fur auctions

The Ohio State Trappers Association (OSTA) will hold a fur auction on March 12 in Kidron, followed by their annual banquet in Waldo on March 19. In addition, the organization is committed to getting furs for displays planned for displays across Ohio. According to a group spokesperson, the Ohio Division of Wildlife (ODOW) is planning to open about 23 new facilities for the public with educational displays including on furbearers of Ohio, for which OSTA needs donations of quality furs. They are especially in need of fox, coyote, beaver, skunk and otter, as well as muskrat, possum and raccoon.

For more information on the auctions, the banquet and the call for quality pelts, visit or contact OSTA Auction Coordinator Brian Coots at 254-383-2623 between the times of 5:00pm to 9:00pm.
