Biggest coon

5 posts in this topic

How bout some posts on the biggest coons you've shot or trapped? Several years ago a bud and I were in the great annual Durand vs Arkansaw coon hunt....red neck as it gets - money for most coons, biggest, smallest, all that good stuff plus drinks at Hutter's afterwards smile.gif Anyways, we scammed two of our Amish buddy's best blueticks, headed down to Gilmanton in Buffalo Co and managed to shoot 3 coons, with one weighing 32lbs 4oz....was quite the thrill for us rookies to show up the veteran coon hunters that night!

wow 32 pound coon - what is the average size or a coon? My father had one that seemed huge eating from his corn feeder - but that sounds like a monster.

I got one in November that was 32 pounds as well...I thought it was a small grizzly when I saw it laying in my conibear. It had absolutely beautiful hair on it so it went to the tannery instead of being sold.

Shoot, that is a pig for sure! Must have been eating well. When I shot mine we were in a hurry to go get another one - I was switching hands carrying it....my bud was giving me a hard time. I said you carry it and I'll lead the dogs out. Well pretty soon he's switching hands as well!

      X2 for the big minnow net.  I got mine at Wally world or FF for $5.  Bend the wire frame to fit.

      You posted this on Friday so I don't know if by "next Saturday" you meant the 14th or this coming Saturday the 21st.    Osakis might be worth a look. Perhaps the Alex chain (Victoria, Geneva, LeHomme Dieu, Carlos, Darling.

      I agree. Completely careless! My uncle could have died...  It broke though he said the ice was to the hood of the truck. He crawled out the window... The window was level to the ice.... He stood up turned around and he said "All I could see was the cab. I watched it for about ten seconds and then it sank." He is extremely lucky to be alive. He still likes ice fishing but he walks on now.

      Fished 2 1/2 weeks solid for NP, and panfish.  Found lots of bites on larger suckers, but almost all were dropped.  Gold and silver shiners were preferred by all sizes.  Usually get the bigger ones on 4-8 suckers.

      I can't tell if it has a second dorsal fin or not based on those pictures, it could be laid down onto the back. But from the looks of it to me, I think its a Brook Silverside. We sample these in central MN streams and the Mississippi River. If you were in Wright County, definitely within its known range. Just a thought based on the picture
