I shot this guy along the blue river Monday. Trapping season doesn't open till November 1, but hunting season opens September 1, and I couldn't resist. Of course I managed to put a hole right in his back, invariably happens with the first coon of the year. Big money here, a couple more like this and I'll have enough for a can of pop.

Nice leather on that one. Looks good. I hope for the sake of all you coon trappers that all the talk about the markets is just that, talk. Be a shame to sell a coon like that for $3

The hole was from getting to aggressive getting the gristle off above the base of the tail. I'm not too worried about it, he'll end up getting tanned and cut up.

Pull the skirt down and use those 2 clothes pins to hold it in place.

That's what I normally do, but I'm not planning on selling them, so I'm not too concerned about getting max length. Normally I hold the tail open with a piece of 1/2" square hardware cloth too, but this year I'll probably just hook them

Wow sir they look better than I thought they would this early.

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

Amazingly better than I would have expected. For nice white leather like that we usually have to wait till almost Thanksgiving here in Pa.......jk
