Bandy’s post on TMan:

The fur sale will still take place on Saturday the sale barn will not be open to the public I will only be selling 5 lots at a time once you have sold your fur you will have to leave the grounds. These measures have been put into place to meet the state requirements so the sale can go on. If you have preregister and have a lot number you will have to wait in the parking lot in your car or truck for your number to be called to come in and sale if anyone has any questions please feel free to call me @(276)-210-7105. Thank you

Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries
CITES Tagging Requirements

Due to coronavirus restrictions on personnel and volunteers, Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries' staff will not attend the Virginia Trappers Association (VTA) fur sales in Wytheville (March 21) or Rockville (March 28) to affix CITES tags to bobcat or otter pelts.

Trappers who normally wait until the fur sale to get their CITES tags will need to contact a regional office by phone to arrange for a Department employee to tag their furs prior to the sale.

CITES tags for bobcats can also be ordered from DGIF Customer Service by calling (804) 367-1000 during normal business hours, if there is sufficient time to receive them in the mail prior to sale. You must have a valid harvest confirmation number for each bobcat you wish to tag. Otter tags cannot be mailed and can only by affixed by Department employees or authorized agents.

Please remember that you cannot sell or consign your bobcat or otter pelts without a CITES tags affixed to the pelt. No CITES tag is needed if you are not selling the fur or not transporting the fur out of Virginia. All pelts requiring a CITES tag must have the tag affixed by April 1 of the season of harvest.

As of now the fur sale is still on out side of the sale barn telling us that we cannot have the sale it will go forward as planned. I do apologize for all the inconvenience and the fact that we won't get to have our normal sale but this is the only way I can completely comply with the guidelines set by the state. I know prices are down but hopefully things will turn the corner soon and we can get back to normal before the picnic the August. After the fur sale district 1 will not have any meetings until June and we will not have a basic trapper training this spring if things work out that we can hold it in the fall we will and as always I will continue to keep working to keep D1 strong.
