u^^NS INC. HUME OF MEPPS
OFFICE one: block west
Why does Mepps only buy and use squirrel tails? Why not other tails? The fact is squirrel tails are all hair. . . no fur. Practically all other animals have fur tails with just a few guard hairs. Fur doesn't work on our spinners as - in the water - it doesn't have the rippling, pulsating movement of squirrel hair. Squirrels are also plentiful. According to government figures more than 30 million squirrels are harvested by hunters each year. Because squirrels are prolific, raising two to four, sometimes more young a year, hunting hardly reduces their numbers. Squirrel is also some of the best wild meat and hunting them in their natural habitat is a challenge for the small game hunter. Squirrel skins are used for caps, fur coats, glove linings and many other items. However, the tail is usually thrown away. This is a waste of a resource. If you hunt squirrels, we're asking you not to waste this resource.
For all usable grey, fox & black squirrel tails we pay the following...
Count Average Tails Premium Tails under 100 16C each 20C each over 100 over 500 over 1000
19C each 2K each 22C each
Double the cash value of your tails by exchanging them for Mepps spinners from this catalog. Please give us the stock numbers of the items you want when you send us the tails.
