New & Improved

Large Lot Marketing Program

 This program is now available to producers with 400+ green skins or 200+ dry skins who desire to sell their skins when THEY want to.

  How it works:


The hunter/trapper makes an appointment with GFW to deliver their skins to one of the following:

  • GFW (Forreston, IL), or
  • one of GFW’s route stops, or
  • a GFW affiliated dealer.

The lot of skins will be tagged and kept separate until they are graded.

Skin Preparation:

  • Green raccoon and coyotes must be frozen, combed and de-burred.
  • Green beaver must be frozen.
  • Dry skins must be properly handled.


  • GFW will grade the skins and make an offer to the producer. The producer has the following options:
    • The producer may accept the offer, and a check will be mailed immediately.
    • The producer may opt to wait for payment on their graded skins until a time when they feel the market is most favorable to them. Upon request, GFW will send a check immediately.

Note:  Once the skins are graded, they are mixed in with all other goods.  GFW keeps a record of the producer’s graded skins until the producer chooses to be paid.

Advantages for the producer:

  • Quality and size are precisely rewarded.
  • The producer has the option to receive payment right away or wait.
  • Immediate payment upon request.
  • Green skins are valued much closer to dry skins.
  • No storage, commission or handling fees. Note: Processing fees will apply to green skins.


  • Previous offers are not valid once rejected.
  • No skins are able to be returned.
