Fox Pelts. Do they have value?

Hi all,
Wondering if Fox Pelts have any value here in Ireland? If so how/who/what would I do with them?
Thanks
Carter

Don't know anything about pelts but did you catch the fox?

No, but I am working hard at it. Digger gave me some helpful advice. He also acted like he and maybe some others would come help me if I am unsuccessful in getting the fox.

Learn how to tan the pelt, and it will have value, or make a nice wall hanger for yourself. Plenty vids on youtube, showing different methods, but all methods are time consuming.

So where would you all suggest trying to sell fox pelts?

Etsy, ebay, Adverts, Donedeal. Etsy is great for selling that sort of thing. I'm sure Facebook would have a place for it too, but personally, I can't stand bloody Facebook.

Yeah. I don't use Facebook and I don't really care for it from what I know about it and hear about it.

Foxes are so common across Europe and the Americas i doubt itd have value, trying to export or sell internationally would meet regulations due to potential diseases etc

Someone I know has for sure killed two foxes in our immediate area and I shot at another one which I am pretty sure I hit but it was still able to get away. The one that I shot at was I think the one that has been most actively visiting my chicken area. All three of these happened in about the past 48 hours. And I have this feeling that there are still more in the area. I saw one this morning that I don't think is one of the three we shot at.
So just an update on my fox problem.

There will be no end to them craigmartin. They may not always be problematic, but they all have the potential to be so, at any given time.

Yeah I know. But hopefully if I can take the nearby fox population down a bit it will help with my problem.

other fox pups move in from other areas. you might get lucky and some ignore your hens or don find it but youll not eradicate them
