    Ok, after dealing with them danged old pesky varments (aka: coons) I have come to the conclusion it is time to bring back the coon hat and while we are at it the coon coat, coon scarf, coon shoes, coon belts and any other garment we can make them into.

    Also, while we are at it, maybe we should reconsider coon as a delicacy... Coon burgers, coon spaghetti... I'm sure the meat is tasty and think how much better on the environment coon would be than cow...

    We are missing a great chance here people so whose with me?

    (speaking conspiratorially) Think about this people, if we sell this right, our number one chicken predator will be GONE!!! Now don't get me wrong, I'm NOT for mass extinction... We should reserve some for zoos... you know... behind BARS!

  2. Any predator that gets caught in my traps or that I shoot becomes a pelt... well.. except for a skunk.. I refuse to try to de-skunk a pelt....

    I'm not sure I'd want to eat a raccoon - raccoon roundworms can be deadly to people if they aren't definitely dead before ingesting the raccoon.

    On the other hand, I think they might make good hats and great liners for winter gloves.

    We even found a use for the skunk we dispatched. Nothing says quit tailgating like a dead skunk in the back of your truck. [​IMG]

    My husband said that a local eatin' joint used to serve things like barbecued raccoon - and it was quite tasty! (My husband's still here, so I guess they cooked it thoroughly!)

  5. Ha! I tried to eat a coon onetime. The tallowy film it left in my mouth for what seemed like days turned me off for life. I can still remember the sensation. According to some folks that do eat them, they are quite tasty and I just didn`t cook it right. I do OK with armadillo, rattlesnake, alligator, and such, but I`ll leave the coon to those who have been taught how to cook it........Pop

    The Republic's most glorious polymath wowed the French by arriving in Paris sporting a most rustic chapeau. The most famous `propaganda hat' in our history was coon:

    More pedestrian and utilitarian use (just saying):

    Learn to remove all scent glands/marinate before sauteing/cube and can in Ball Jars: Market it as `Boutique Meat Product'
