Hey guys, I've been out of the scene a few years. Are raccoon prices recovering at all yet?

Nope. Just like most things, they're going the opposite direction.

'Worthless racoons' is the way I have heard many describe them lately.

Havenít sold a coon for a couple years but what I hear on the grapevine is theyíre worth the effort...to pitch em in the ditch.

So is it really that bad, or is it the typical preseason doom and gloom with prices slowly increasing or doing better than expected at auction ? I got $8 to $12 on my 3xl and 4xl coons last year at the local auction, after the covid 19 panic in China which dropped the prices at the end. All season long I heard how worthless coons would be that season, that I'd be lucky to get $5 for put up 4xl.

The market has been saturated for years. For larger sizes and higher quality you may do ok. Anything damaged, small, blue, or off color will sell for next to nothing if it sells at all.

I had about 700 at FHA---- after their latest auction I have 653 "unsold".
so I wish it would get back up to "gloom and doom".....

Gone are the days of $20 for throwing a carcass coon up on the grading table for sure.


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

Report said mostly unsold yet... Been bad and probably gonna get worse with China Corona mess etc. Still need to control the population though.

True. But the market will be in for a lOOOONg recovery, if it ever does, if folks donít quit stacking coon on top of unsold coon. I donít have any skin in the game, havenít seen a coon in my neck of the woods for almost 20 years, and that one was a fluke.

Don't know why anyone would be targeting coon, unless for self use. Looks like the market is totally saturated as is. Agree the population has to be controlled.

They will keep stacking coon on top of coon. They are real trappers.
