Racoons

7 posts in this topic

For those that take some with your bows while out deer hunting, what do you do with them? I've had many an opportunity but never taken the shot because I'd have no use for them. But I've started thinking about a hat or something like that. Has anyone ever taken some in to the taxidermist or made something themselves?

skin em and sell the hides i think they run about 6-15 dollers (someone correct me if im wrong) but the price will depend on how prime they are and there size, you can also eat them to. they do alot of that down south i've had "coon stew" and it was actually preety tasty wink.gif

Never shot one with the bow but I have had chances.Smoked coon is very good.I think it tastes alot like ham only it stays with you for a few hours.

Have had multiple coons and even a skunk directly under the deer stand this year. Have let them all walk because I have no use for them as well. Many people skin and sell the hides though. Don't think they are worth a whole lot though.

around 10 dollars, hardly worth shooting a clean broadhead at.

Ten dollars for the hide, less if you put a hole in the hide with your arrow. Take a head shot and then you wont ruin the hide

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
