Pull into a parking lot on some Corp land tonight to go coon hunting scattered around that parking area were ten coon carcasses someone had skinned them for the hide. Around here coon meat will go for 10$ to 15$. For sure it put a dent in the ringtales that our hounds chase.

I am a Sport Chase coon hunter I will not kill more than about 10 to twenty a year I hunt about three or four nights a week. Last night treed four and never fired a shot,but I still think it's a gross waste of game because the coons are hunted heavy in our part of Texas.

People buy / sell raccoon meat? I didn't even think coyotes ate those things.

Man.......I missed out on a money making opportunity! When I set my pig feeder 3 years ago it looked like one of those "Occupy Wall St" protest except it wasn't freeloading bums, it was freeloading raccoons. I bet I shot 100 of those things. Still have one or two around but they aren't causing me any problems.

Do you sell the meat to friends, restaurants....?????

Go to a fish market in South Monroe. They'll have a cardboard sign on the door. Coons for sale. I have a cousin who runs dogs. He sells every one he kills as soon as the sun comes up. And sells the hides.

Truenorth you made a good point about letting your hounds have some fur,and it makes for a better hound. But about all the land I have to hunt is Corp land and coons are thin. I have also hunted land where coons were causing alot of trouble and those coon had to die or be thined heavy.

Last time I recall hearing about anyone eating a coon, was in the 60's and they was PO Arkansas folk. If you can sell them here in Texas, I'd think a bunch of fellas would be after that extra cash? I remember when the hides where fetching $20-30 (80's) and near wiped them out in some ares, but haven't heard of them bringing hardly $5 for some time? Not worth skinning..
