re: Raccoon hide/meat value
When I was a kid we hunted them with a dog and trapped them, we would take 2-300 to market and get an average of $15 - $18 for the hides.

The old timers tell me that back in the early 80's they were gettin up to $25 for a XL hide. That was damn good money back then. Everybody in arkansas had a coon hound back then!

Or shoot one out a tree, hits the ground and runs. You chase it and it stops. You go to shoot it again and there is no bullets.

Back in the 80' and early 90's, it was very easy to make $300 a night on coons. Loved to hunt them back in the day.

You could probably go through certain parts of town with a truckload of dead coons and get $5 each. There will be several cooked on MLK day.

Can get $10 for the meat in North La. Hide is useless.

re: Raccoon hide/meat value
Trapped in the 70's. Made more trapping than my 8-5 job. This was what I was getting.
Coons-around $15
Gray Fox-$47
Red Fox-$55
Otter-$60
Bobcat-$100
Mink-$20
Would get up at 3:00 am to run traps. Be back at home before time to go to work. Come in from work and start skinning. It was work but worth it-I was young then. Had several $12,000-$15,000 years and it was part time trapping.
