In your state, can you keep the furs? I got a couple coon last month and of course the fur is not prime but it sure was pretty. I skun em and put them in the freezer to be tanned later. I know some hat makers that could make some nice hats with them.

unfortunately no we use to be able to relocate till 2 years ago some animals we still can relocate but coons have to be euthinized.and any fur berrer taken under damage control out of season has to be destroyed.screwed up law but in one sence i can see their point.most people around here are liberal anties anyway so they here that you have to euthinize and they descide the animal is not that big of a problem.but if its non game specie like coyote ore nutria i can due what ever i want with it.
