My biggest coon was 26 lbs this season. That is a monster for us. Average is 15-20 around here.
What do your coons weigh ?


Just a weekend trapper... & liking it !

12-15 avg this part of Ohio. Some of the ridge runners or dumpster divers can get on the upper teens and occasionally in the 20s.

I weighed all but 1 of my coon this year. Most came in between the 12 and 15 lb. mark. Had a couple that were bigger.

These two coons were caught back in the late 1990s but not the same year. Both were females and both weighed 37 lbs. They were both extremely fat and thus only stretched out to say 39 inches on the larger boards. I have not caught a male over 34 lbs. but quit weighing them about 12 years ago. I have had males in that 30 lbs. range reach 42 inches or better on the larger boards. Males with their larger heads and shoulders just stretch much longer than females do. Every year I catch a coon or two that stretch over 40 inches and based on history I know none of them weighed 30 lbs. or if so just over a bit. I don't get paid by the pound anyway so length is more important to me then weight.

Adult raccoons weigh 15 to 40 pounds, their weight being a result of genetics, age, available food and habitat location. Males have weighed in at over 60 pounds.

This one weighed in at 28#. I weighed him using the bathroom scale - first me holding him and then without subtract and get the total.

Caught one when I was a kid that weighed 29lbs - never seen any that big since. My uncle had him weighed at a meat packer's place.
Most of mine weigh in from 8 to 15lbs on my "el-cheapo" scale.

Most of our bigger males run 18 to 20. Biggest I've ever caught here was 29.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Next season I'm going to weigh the coon just for ships and giggles ,to see what they average size wise. I weighed some coyotes later into the season to see how they average weight wise. So far females about 27 1/2 and males 37 pounds. [Linked Image]
Caught this coon last week ,Grandson had a hard time handling it , should have weighed it ! Stretched to over 5x on the board !
