It has been years since I ate coon, but when prepared right (for example slow roasting) it tastes good. It is good red meat, but also has somewhat of a sweet pork taste. After skinning so many of the things, I just don't have an appetite for them.

My grandpa use to hunt coon alot. We had family fish-fries and family coon-fries. I was a kid so I didn't know better, but I liked it. Can't remember what it tasted like but remember that Lanse is correct its reddish. I would gladly try hunting and eating them again...but I don't have any dogs, and that's not something you can get into half-cocked. Its gotta be all or nothing.

You skin it and quarter it.
Then sprinkle meat tenderizer on it.
Roll in flour.
Then pan fry like chicken.

Taste like beef

when I was trapping, I always keep the young smaller ones for myself.

BBQ ; like pork and there great.

take the young ones and clean real good(remove the gland from under the front legs) season,meat tenderizer, lowyers seasoning , garlic powder , put into bag with 1 cup zesty Italian dressing,seal and let set overnight..

cook real slow on grill, (just like you would a pork sholder).

taste sorta like pork.

if it is a big one,then put into pressure cooker for about 1 hr. then season as above, then cook.
