Yes. I could only trap the first 4 weeks of season. Didn't have any trouble with the coon I kept during that time.

If it was an early season dog, youíre seeing blue leather. It is really common with earlier coon....the leather hasnít thickened and youíre looking at the roots of the hair. At least thatís always been my understanding of blue leather.

Late litter pup + caught early in season = blue leather (fur industry trade name for early caught fur)
