Worth putting out coon sets?

Kinda a simple question... Lol

Been a busy fall and my plan was to just wet my trapping line at the end of the season after archery, but will I get $10 for a skinned/fleshed late season coon!?!?

There are enough animals in the woods and birds in the air for all of us...

Most likely wont see $10...maybe 5-6. Sale I was at I got $5 for 3x and 4x coons, and they were done up good. Saw some reports from FH coon didnt even sell.

NO (I don't think your best one this late season)
prices are down
Coon will be rubbed and springy this time of year
With the approaching warm spell, It would be a good time to reduce the Coon population to prevent distemper and rabies

Re: Worth putting out coon sets?

Although some local trapper sales have bought coon doesn't mean they are worth anything. The auction houses are still filled with unsold raccoons from the previous two seasons.

I have a trapping friend from eastern Texas that caught a few coons while trapping bobcats this season. He fleshed and stretched them and donated them to the local boy scout troop for projects such as tanning and garment making. That was by far the best thing I've heard to do with coons this year.

The horizon is your starting point.

You might find this video interesting if you're under the impression late season coon trapping is where the money is.

A haiku is just like a normal American poem, except it doesnt rhyme and is totally stupid.
