20 lbs


I caught a 20 pound coon today. I weight it, to bad it was not silver. I also caught an 18 pound brown coon. I am letting the smaller ones go and of course they were silver.

Keith I was really surprised. The first one was the 20 pounder. This farm has not been trapped for three years.

Last time I left a place go for a few years, that's what happened, a whole bunch of 16 to 22 lb. coon!

I don’t think letting a farm go untrapped makes much of a difference in coon size. They are not confined to a 640 acre section of land. They move to where the food is, and that can be miles away. I’ve trapped a good food source week one of the season caught 10-12 good coon and then pulled and moved on to next location when catch dropped off. Then came back 2 months later during jan thaw and caught 10-12 good coon again. Coon migrate way more than most people realize.

Well, it has made a difference here Doug, every time I don't trap a farm for a few years I end up catching big scarred up coon. Maybe our lack of big chunks of cover, or large food supply means they don't need to travel?
