Picture of Red Coon

I sold these coon for 15 bucks average in November, the red one for 20 to a local guy for his wall, I have a red one on the wall I trapped 40 years ago, a long time in between, but I needed to make some money. I lost my job end of October, 35 years as a toolmaker and still am looking now for another good job, I can't see working for the same as unemployment pays.

15 bucks is better than anything I have sold to date and I've sold some 2 and 3XL coon.
Good luck on your job hunt.
I too am looking. There just ain't anything out there. Its so bad that the local employment agency I've been working for closed their office here in town.
I'm sending you a PM.
have a good one

Those are some nice looking coon! I've never seen a red one like that before. I did catch one with pink eyes, pink feet, and straw-colored fur once.

I sent 31 coon to NAFA. 18 of them sold and averaged $24.56. Of course, these were the best of the bunch. I'm guessing when the rest sell, the average will be really reduced.
