    Coon?

    I've never tried one. Have heard that property prepared, they can be good eating. Anyone here that had tried them? Did you like? Any prep or cooking tips?

    I heard from an older southern gentleman, they are supposed to be better tasting than possum. Only your palate will know for sure.

    My cousin and I used to trap in the winters in Northern California... We used to Log in the late spring, summer and early fall. The rest of the year it was too wet and dangerous... So we trapped for pelts to sell and used the meat for food... Bobcat and Racoon sausage was something we made regularly... It was dang good too...

    Had the wife try some at a party once, she liked it until she found out what it was. It really isn't bad

    I trapped while in school. A good hide would bring 3-4 dollars.. The meat was sold for the same amount over in the quarters, if you left a front foot attached..

    One of the guys put on a work day lunch at the village fire department. He wasn't saying just what it was beforehand. Out comes plate with roasted meat covered in gravy, really tasted great. Then he told us it was racoon. Got another helping decided that was good food.

    It's what you learn after you know it all that makes a difference.
