Don't shoot the messenger. I, same as my grandfather was a houndsman and have trained several dogs with live coons, but regulations and times have changed. Anything potentially illegal posted on social media usually generates calls to report them. I'm just trying to keep him and 2Beez out of trouble considering he has posted his request on the public internet. And the info for anyone else that does not know. Ronnie, good advice at this point for him to talk to the game warden for his county to find out exactly what they will allow him to do.

Buy and Bust
A Gonzales County game warden and a Guadalupe County game warden teamed up with a special operations sergeant to set up a buy/bust operation in Gonzales County. The investigation was a response to an Operation Game Thief call the wardens received a few weeks prior about an individual selling wild-caught raccoons over the Internet. The wardens’ investigation revealed the suspect did not possess a current furbearing animal propagator’s permit. The wardens successfully caught the suspect in the illegal act of selling several live, wild raccoons. Cases are pending against the seller.
