You might like it here. If you did move, I would hook you up with a bunch of farmers. I have more to trap than my sons and I can realistically cover in the 6 weeks I trap.

Dave time to move on to coyotes. Come to Kansas were you can catch 20 or 30 $120 coyotes a day. Coon market in the past. A month or two trapping here you can probably take rest of year off. Maybe write a biography with your extra time. Good money in selling books too.

Mike Wilhite writes the report for Trappers Post.

I can't say for sure what the exact price of coon will be no one can. What I can say for sure is it will be below production costs.

This is false.

The cost to get a container from China to the US has increased on this scale (depending on your flexibility with dates). But to get a container from the US to China has not changed much.

Current Cost Estimate -
Shanghai to New York - $6060
New York to Shanghai - $608

Coonman the key to trapping coons in large numbers this year is that you need to find a market for the meat.
You need to clean the carcass really good and plastic bag every coon separate in clear plastic bag. 1 coon per bag. Leave the feet on them for identification purpose for the buyer. If you have a big freezer fill it up. It might hold 50 cleaned raccoon carcass. Then find a state that allows the sale of the meat. You should average 5.00 or 6.00 per raccoon carcass when you sale them in bulk. Just have to find the state that allows it. Not sure how many raccoons you catch a year but letís say 200 you might get 1000.00 for the carcass. That will pay a lot of trapping expenses. MD
