"A step-by-step explanation of how furs in Saskatchewan get to market, from the issuing of licences by the Game Division of the Dept. of Natural Resources, through the final auction organized by the Fur Marketing Service of the Saskatchewan government. In addition, the film covers the proper setting of muskrat and beaver traps, how to skin, scrape and stretch the hides, how quota limits are enforced and how furs are tagged, sorted, graded and baled before auction."
