not sure how to do the cool quote things but to answer your question tweed its large tracts of public forests bordering private crop fields

the fur looks pretty good to me you can see for yourself nice thing about fur is if it looks good it probably is good...




CableAble,

What Is Your Primary Methodology Used In Catching These Coon ?

Snares Or Cable Restraints, Coilsprings in Water Or Dirtholes, Body-Grips in Boxes/Buckets Or Trails, Or Baited Dogproofs ?

Great Catches.

If it weren’t for that government money, you would probably have made more on the skunk and grinners.

Oh, and the bluegill bite is on.

CableAble, are you releasing smaller coon at all? Curious how you're able to keep up with skinning/fleshing/drying 160+ coon in a week.

CableAble- You certainly have the position on those woods/crop edge masked bandits. Congrats!! Do you catch most of your coon the last half of October...?

thanks all! been fun so far

tlguy- i release small coon lave let over a dozen go so far i didnt flesh for the first 2 or 3 days (till i filled my freezers haha) since then ive been fleshing and putting up everything skinning is easy because of my skinning machine im able to reuse my boards every day because of a drying shed i have built just a foam building with a heater and 2 blower fans dries fully in 24 hours no real secret to keeping up with it though just work haha

nonpcfed- i am this year because come thursday im pulling all my coon gear and switching over to rats full time i trap a big marsh and cant wait thousands of rats on it once it freezes over i will be back out cableing fox and coyote and whatever coon i find and then as the coon rut kicks off ill be setting heavy for them again
