Hey guys! This is my first post.

I live in the Deep South (The MS Delta), and got me some Duke DPs & a couple body traps from F & T.

Me and my little buddy from across the street set the DPs two days ago, using marshmallows & some Boar's Delight. We checked the traps, nothing the first night, moved the traps & bingo, a nice big boar coon. We dispatched him, brought him home, skinned & gutted him. Soaked him in fridge overnight in salt water. Boiled him, & roasted him with some veggies, cajun spices, and salt for 3 hours @ 275 F. Used the spices sparingly. Oh, I drizzled him with a little extra virgin olive oil. That's it.

I invited a couple of neighbors over & we made short work of that coon. Man, talk about good! It was my first time trapping coon & first time cooking one, too. We couldn't believe how good it tasted!

:lol: :lol: Welcome to WAT LR and what a message to make an entry! I can see the coon grease dripping from all your chins. Nothing wrong with a well prepared coon (and many other varmints). Don't forget to try some bobcat meat....very good. I would stay away from the canines. :?

Welcome to WAT! My grandmother used to cook the coon my grandfather used to bring home after a night of hunting. My wife isn't interested in that though. :lol:

Do you live remote so the coons aren't dining on garbage? Or does it matter? Im "vacationing/aka/being held captive, in S. Florida and I do occasionally see a coon dashing into a culvert and wonder about the dangers if any, of eating meat from a suburban grown critter as opposed to ones having grown up on crawdads and corn.
I've eaten plenty of bear meat and have always heard that bear raised about a garbage dump is pretty nasty. Im wondering if coon would be the same.
I do have the book "Survival Poaching" ( which doesn't encourage poaching, just tells you some terrific ways of doing it) so might try my hand at some culvert snares depending on what sort of comments I receive on this post.

I was under the impression that coons were so nasty you had to wear gloves just to handle them . Fill me in on this .
