Postby jbullard1 » Mon Jul 18, 2011 6:27 pm

I just saw a coon that looked like it weighed 40 pounds
I'd sure hate to tangle with that sucker

I've never weighed any coons, but I have seen a few "butterball" raccoons that were sure some bad boys!

The biggest one I ever killed was back in early 1960, it weighed 42 pounds and by the time I got home from walking four miles with it, I would have sworn it weighed 100 lb.

Depends on how much feed you got out. They will eat everything you put out. I had a guy come kill a bunch of them on our land a few years ago and the deer suddenly started killing our feeders.
