Funny story...my little girl (she is 3):

BabyGirl - Daddy what do you with the raccoons?
Daddy StinkDog12 - ahhh baby, daddy just sends them to a better place
BabyGirl - oh, you take them to Disney World Daddy?

re: Eating Coon


well, my story was from several decades ago. when i was in high schoo, and college, while deer hunting during the day, we'd coon hunt at night to make spending money. We'd sell the hides for about 18-20 each and the meat for 2-4 each...

Ole geauxt knows what's up!

The young ones having real light meat.


Now that I think about it, don't know that I've seen too many coonasses eat coon. Which is strange, cause I've seen more then one try to cook a beaver.

Guess it's too much like eating their cousin to em.

re: Eating Coon


Used to run trap lines when we were kids. Started out getting 12 for a coon hide. 45 for grey fox. Price got down to 2 for coon and 15 for fox and we quit doing it. We were getting about 5 for a coon carcass.

Otters were the holy grail at our place. Coons were just a nuisance at $8

Dang. Wish I knew someone down here that paid 15 bucks for 1 of them. I could make 150 bucks in a week all while taking care of my problem.

re: Eating Coon


If you eat coon and it isn't tasty, then whoever cooked it didn't know what the hell they were doing.

Par boil it in a turkey pot with zatarains crab boil until its tender. Throw it on a pit and coat it with either Jack millers or Pig Stand BBQ sauce. I'll take that over steak any day.

re: Eating Coon


If you do any research, coons are as clean as cats...in their mannerisms...before you cook it, you have to take out all the glands around the muscles,quite a few too, my grandpaw showed me how to do it...Baked coon is not bad.

re: Eating Coon


It's not bad. We season it in seafood boil, bake it with taters and onions.

For some reason when I started reading this I was picturing your dad at a nightclub and you sitting in the car and then him telling you to walk home. I was thinking WTF.

re: Eating Coon


i've had bear in Wyoming that was arrowed out of an apple orchard. was fried on a griddle with salt and pepper. tasted like coon. like anything else, cookin without the trinity and some Tonys leaves a lot to be desired.
I take a lot of time prepping my coons. Then i marinate. don't care to bake with sweet potatos but love to smother with a gravy. the men at the camp open their mouths every time their elbows bend.
