Seen the game cam photos...some coons are corn fed so that should help them be more paletable! Still corn bandits and turkey are corn buzzards!

Coon is better than possum and they are both better than armadillo. I didn't do the cooking but had a neighbor who would take anything and everything we would bring him.
I will take squirrels over any of them.

My brother-in-law grew up in the back woods of Arkansas. I think there were six kids in his graduating high school class. His father died when he was about six, and they lived with his grandmother. They ate whatever they could get. He said 'coon wasn't bad, just a bit greasy.

I've though about cooking one. I've looked at recipes. Most of them seem to say to first boil the coon to get rid of the grease, then bake it or whatever.

So far I've managed to keep the freezer pretty full of feral pork, so 'coon cookin' will have to wait.

You can have any coons that were reserved for me.

I've lost count of the BBQ raccoon number I have had. Must be cooked right or it is too greasy to even consider. Had a neighbor that ran his dogs 2-3 x week. Usually came home with 6-10 coons. All he really wanted was the fur, but did keep a lot of the carcasses to supplement his dog food. I tried to get a few coon carcasses each month to make a meal off.

My mother ate so much Spam during the Great Depression, she wouldn't allow it in the house when I was growing up.

I know some people who swear by it. They boil it with seasoning and than put it on a smoker. I personally have never had it, but certainly would give it a chance.

I shot 2 hogs and a raccoon once and hauled them down to the hog graveyard. Hogs were gone in 2 days and as far as I could tell nothing touched the raccoon. I'm not about to eat hogs or coons.

I sold 'coon in the late 80's for $5. I sold them in the late 90's and around 2005 for $10. I think $10 is a fair price for the effort. Buyers always wanted the back feet left on them. One said it was so she could tell I wasn't selling her a house cat!!!!

I tried it by accident one time. I found out as I was eating it, it along with some opossum and dumplings, was "cooked up" for the dogs. Sure, I felt stupid. Not so good, but it was better than the opossum!
