    Carcass coons here were bringing $3-$5 this year. We have some of the best coon in the country here. The ones I sold were just incidentals in coyote sets, I wasnt intentionally targeting them. I never thought I would see the coon market as bad as it has been the last 2 years. Sadly the distemper will likely knock them back pretty hard before long, Ma Nature only lets get things so far out of balance before she puts things back in check.

    I wish MA Nature would knock my coons back. Killed/trapped 18 in ten days out of my four rows of sweet corn last summer. And I didnt get them all.

    Nice to see you can put a little money in your pocket while helping out other wildlife populations by controlling the nest raiders and the fawn predators at the same time.

    That picture is fantastic. I always wanted a shed full of furs. I dabble, but it tjust takes so much time. Congrats to you.
