Check with your state department of natural resources to see if you can find a list of licensed fur buyers and then look for one in your area. My state has a list of licensed buyers right on the DNR website. Some local fur buyers are real good guys but most of them have gone out of business in the last few years and the only ones left around me are not exactly "salt of the earth" types if you know what I mean.
Groenwald & Co. sends out buyers on a delivery route. You can look them up on-line and see if they have a scheduled pickup near you.
You could also call you State Trappers Association. Sometimes they will have an auction or two during the year where fur buyers will bid on your furs and you can sell to the highest bidder.
I have been shipping to North American Fur Auctions (NAFA) in Canada. Once you get an account set up with them it is easy to use and I feel I always get a fair deal on my furs. It does take some time to get your money and all furs have to be stretched and dried before shipping.
You could also call Fur Takers of America or the National Trappers Association and they would probably be able to direct you to possible buyers for your furs.

Do a search for the keyword "rendezvous" for your general area. These events are gatherings of folks recreating the 1740-1840 time periods and these events have alot of vendors (sutlers). I dont know how many you have or get in a year. A lot of fur buying/selling happens at these events. What kind of furs do you have?
2ND NAFA thats who I ship to and I be willing to bet thats who your country byer sends to .
Google your question..............
The best part of the hunt is not the harvest but in the experience.
Lived in Douglas Ga. for a bit when i was in high school. was a local fur buyer then that paid $5 a pelt but you didn't have to skin em, just throw em in the freezer and when you had enough take em to them.
