Big Ol' Coon

Just wonderin' how big normal coons get. I got one at the taxidermist's that weighs 18 pounds after sittin' overnight so we figured he would have weighed just over 20 pounds alive. This thing would have been big enough to stand on it's hind paws and reach my belt or maybe higher.

30lbs That's a monster!

When I was trapping them years ago 23-25 lb would be some of our biggest, and they were corn fed Big smile

redrider, I was looking at the quality of fur by region and it looks like your in a good spot (right at the southern border of it) and the fur is grouped with the fur from ND, SD Wi and the surounding states.

I really wish I had more time and lived closer to our family land, so I could enjoy trapping again Yes
