"Other Alaska furs remain in the doldrums. Lynx, which a few years ago fetched several hundred dollars, are now well under $100 for the best. Red fox prices are about where they were when I started trapping them in 1970 — $25, and not all are selling. Top prices for marten are around $70, and that is for the best — the average will come in far lower. A good marten line in the Interior can yield 200 to 300 marten, but at an average of $40 apiece, that barely buys the snowmachine, let alone gas and parts."
