Too bad the price of their fur is going down the toilet.

Nice coon. Yeah sucks that fur prices have dropped so much. I can't wait for Christmas break from school so I can get out and find a couple coon

Got these in Illinois. My part of Ohio lost a large part of the coon population last year. It has come back pretty good this year, but with a lot of young stuff. So, i am leaving the stuff around my place alone.

I used trap years ago and sold all my stuff soI do not any more.. The house next door to me is owned by a guy from New Jersey who hasn't been up this way in around 15 years or so. The coons have taken that house over and did they ever wreck the inside of that house.. I have tried to buy it for the land a few years ago but I think he wanted to much for it. I recently bought a live trap to get rid of some feral cats and made sure it was big enough for coons. So next yearI will try and move some of them away from here as well..Anyways congrats on getting your coons Lanse..

I think that the biggest one may go XX. The two smallest ones are probably this years kits and will only go large. Got these the night before Thanksgiving. I shot a couple moretrapped another 6 that weekend. Had more XX's and at least one XXX in that bunch.
