I have been removing coon for a neighbor who is having trouble around their chicken houses, and being that there is no use in skinning them, what is the best use of these summer coon. I hate to kill them and throw them in a hole if I can use them for prebaiting, bait, or something else. What do you all do with you summer coon catches?

I use them in a draw station, like all road kill. 3 days in summer a large raccoon will rend out. Small coons will break down in about 3 hours to just the bones and a grease spot. You are looking at this wrong though, in nature puts them to use, as that is what maggots are for. Put in a draw station which is open and vultures will appear too. It is all recycling.

I would make the point in your mentioning hating to get rid of problem animals. The reason they are there is because they are displaced out of nature as there are too many coons already. If they are dumped off some place, that is just compounding the problem in giving it to someone else in their sweet corn patch, or the birds will have their nests destroyed. Around here, coons often kill young kittens. I am in a drainage off a lake, and I get lots of dumped off animals, as the lake is such a nice spot for people to feel moral about, but I am the one who ends up having to deal with the situation. No one would want a prison opened and inmates dumped into their town as there was room and it was such a nice place. It is the same with raccoons and other animals, not wanting new pressures on the food supply.

Yes, I agree its all recycling, and thats what I currently do. I take them to "The Boneyard." My question of what else I could do with them was merely a question of if there is a better use than simply throwing them on the pile.

As far as hating to get rid of problem animals, I didn't say that. I said I hate the thought of wasting them if they have a use. I do not a relocate, I do not dump them off at your house. I do not help people that ask me to catch and relocate. Just as you mention, relocation is pushing the problem to the next guy.

Toss them in the bone yard if permissible. My local WCO said I could toss them with the down cows in the pit.
I even mentioned to a few others at a regional meeting and they said it would be fine.
Under PA law all carcasses of nuisance wildlife are to be incinerated or send to a landfill though.

I have also talked with WCO's about the disposal law, was always told if the animal appears ill, burn it, but he kinda of told me in a round about way do what you want with the rest. Thats been a few years now though.

A point of interest, do not shoot any animal that has lead as part of the bullet make up and leave them for vultures to eat. Lead in a VERY small amount if ingested will kill any raptor.
This includes hawks, eagles, falcons, owls, vultures. I know there are some on this site will say good, but I think those that did not know this will stop. I did not know this for year or just did not think about it. JMO

I understand your point, and I'm not trying to get off subject, but what are you suggesting we do with deer gut piles?

In most cases the bullet goes out the other side, I how you do not get a gut shot. I dispatch way more coon and opossum that deer. You could cover the pile with debris. Thanks for thinking about it.

If you are into home tanning you can use a few to make leather.Practice with different methods.It wont matter if you ruin a few.Better to perfect your skills on a worthless hide than say on a nice deerhide.

I've seen coon urine on the market, but never personally used it.

My buddy feeds them to turtles, or crabs. Crabs take about 3 weeks to devour a carcass. Turtles make quick work of a coon.


Just a weekend trapper...

I would just cage them and feed/water them until winter time and than cull them. Not to be that person, but you've already gone through the trouble of catching them, might as well make it worth it.
