Re: prime coon
There are plenty of spotty coons caught the first two weeks on November around here. Iím not saying I never, or I will not set a trap then, because I will now and then to pass the time if I kill an early archery buck. I start my line the last Saturday of Archery season and run it until rifle starts then I pull my gear. Iíll reset a smaller line for K-9ís, beaver, & cat Dec 26th until January 2nd. Then Iím back to work and Iíll monkey around with a few sets here and there.
Shipping direct is the only way to go if you are looking for top dollar. Long Beard, it sounds as if you do a fine job in the fur shed because you are getting top dollar. If you are looking for that top dollar pay day and you are running smaller lines like myself. It pays to take your time and put things up correctly as well as it pay higher prices to wait until the furs are prime.
Good luck to all,
