IDAHO FALLS- Fur Sale? Has Fish & Game resorted to selling fur coats to make ends meet? No, It's time for the annual fur sale of raw furs confiscated from poachers or removed from abandoned animals. Also on sale will be bundles of deer, elk, and moose antlers confiscated throughout the state during the previous year. Each year the Fur Sale rotates from region to region around the state, this year the sale will be held on Saturday April 8 at the IDFG Regional Office in Idaho Falls.
The IDFG Regional Office is located at 1515 Lincoln Road in Idaho Falls. The sale will be held outside in the compound behind the regional office. While limited shelter from the elements will be available, the sale is definitely an outdoor event so participants should dress for the weather.
The sale is held in an auction format, with a private auctioneer conducting the sale. Items will be sold both separately and in batch lots. Items may be previewed starting at 9:00 AM and the auction will start at 11:00 AM. Sales are on a cash or check only basis, no credit cards will be accepted.
Each year in addition to animal parts, a small quantity of sporting equipment such as abandoned traps and fishing poles are also put up for auction. No guns or vehicles are sold at the auction.
