Northampton County coons

I set a few traps out to check out the coons. Approx 10 pound male. Not big, but not small. The fur isn't too bad and the skin isn't too bad either. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm goin out for some coons while we have nice weather

Re: Northampton County coons

I worked with a furbuyer several years and can see that that coon is thin furred. Now, if you would learn to scrape it properly, you would see just how blue he really is. i am not being smart, just telling you the truth.

Re: Northampton County coons

Scrape it properly? I didn't flesh it at all. If you look at the shoulder area, you can see the color. I guess its what you call "slatey", but far from blue. I've had blue ones before. But my point was that if the smaller or mid-size 10 pound ones are like this, than it can only get better from here, right?

Re: Northampton County coons

I agree Rain Man the shoulder area looks a little slatey but not to bad. I picked up 2 reds and a grey so far the reds a still a little thin around the shoulders but the grey looked good.

Re: Northampton County coons

Good luck on your trapping Rainman. If you would wait two more weeks you could double the value of your coon catch. If you can take the buyer knocking the grade down,go for it.

Re: Northampton County coons

Beaver, Rainman is a pretty good trapper. I think he was only trying to show an early season catch here. We all know that the fur will get better as the season goes on. Don't worry about what HE will get for it at his buyer. I understand what you were you saying but you really jumped on the guy.

Re: Northampton County coons

Rainman,sorry if I was too rough with my words. I just want to teach the young guys and the newbees that not all fur is the same. If you feel the fur is ready , trap it.
Again, doubleT, I didn't mean to sound rough. Hope you understand.
