Bob just returned from town where he went into a trapping supply store and was told he is “black balled”!  They won’t even think about buying any raw furs from him!

How is that for a company that has been in business for over 30 years?  Suddenly they can select who they wish to purchase furs from…not that we would sell to them, unless of course they were the high bidder…but to not even entertain a “low ball bid”….give me a break!

He asked what they were buying rats for and the guy running the store said he couldn’t tell him…not that he didn’t know…just that he would not tell him.  Then he called the “old boss” and told him that Bob was bugging him to tell him and the “old boss” said…Tell him I will tell him on Saturday….

What’s with these guys?  I’m sure glad we have the rest of the world to deal with because these guys business is going under faster than then might think they will, especially with an attitude like that!  It doesn’t take very long for poor and/or miss-management to close doors and this one has been going down hill for at least the last 4 years.

    I’ve heard of them doing some stupid things, but that takes the cake! Telling a trapper with a HUGE lot of QUALITY hides that you won’t even bid on his hides? Do they have any clue about how much “trap fixin’s” business they’ll miss out on over the next 10 years?!

      Right on. I suppose I should have waited to hear more about what was actually said instead of the para-phrase I heard. What was actually meant was that the “kid” in charge was told not to bid and so he told that to Bob. But, the old man wanted to bid and didn’t want the kid to be a problem in the mix.
