Caught the fattest coon ive ever seen in my 30 years... Needless to say, he doesnt work here no more
Where is the Photo?
No pic, phone was in the house when i checked the traps this morning... I was going to go back for it, but decided to just dispose of the coon and get out of the snowstorm
I just set a trap for a raccoon this evening. We lost 3 hens last week, then our rooster some time during the night, last night. Of course, I didn't know it was a raccoon until tonight when I went out to close up the coop. I was walking back towards the house and shined my flashlight over by the fence and there he was, creeping along. Hopefully he likes canned potted meat, too.
~ ~ 1 skinned, deboned, defatted raccoon, cubed
~ 1 large Vidalia onion, diced
~ 3 cloves garlic, crushed
~ 3 medium turnips, diced
~ 2 lbs small whole potatoes
~ 3 stalks celery, diced
~ 1 tsp cayenne pepper
~ 1 tsp salt
~ 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
~ 1 cup sour cream
~ 4 cups water or enough to cover
Add all of the ingredients to a large cast iron pot. Stir together.
Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer 1 1/2 - 2 hours stirring occasionally.
Add more water if necessary.
Serve with a side salad, corn pone or cat head biscuits, vegetable of choice and iced tea.
Biggest coon I ever hammered was 38 pounds, male.
They can get big.
Especially if they are eating our chickens... ********!
But there's an endpoint to that.
