time of year?

Was just wondering what time of year you guys start targeting coons?

Yep usually the second week in November, and you still may pick up a blue coon.

Re: time of year?

as soon as season opens...what i lose in quality i make up for in quantity....a person has to trap when he has the time to do so..even if i had all season to trap i would still start at the opener and run till the last day....

Re: time of year?

I throw out coon sets at all creeks while running my canine line from day one.My coon seem to be good early except for the smalls which never get great.Go for them when you have the time.If you want the best ones wait till mid-nov,but by then,up here, alot aren't moving much anymore.I use coon to pay the gas bill for my yote line,and again for my mink trapping.I don't have alot up here but do have real good quality

Re: time of year?

I start about the second week in November. Why you ask? Well, a few years ago, we had about 8 inches of snow fall the last week in October. If it's snowing, it's time to trap. I caught a couple of coon that week, one prime one blue. The blue coon only fetched $4.00 from NAFA.

Can you tell which one is blue?


The horizon is your starting point.

Re: time of year?

Im pretty new to trapping this is just my second season going out. just trying to get as much info from you guys as I can. I figured I can never have too much advise/information along with just learning things on my own.

Re: time of year?

Usually 2nd week of November, but what walker said does have some merit. Might start at first day this year and be selective.
