Biggest coon

Recommended Posts

Cooter

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.

My dog is about 85 lbs -

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!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
