    I am thinking of trapping some coons in a live trap. Drown them in a lake. Then boil my baby girls some super protien morbid dinner. Anyone seen the book of ELI? What will that coon think when My girls are like "OOOOH you look like you been eatin well, SOme good MArbleing going on." "Don't Mind the shakes. We haven't eatin' in awhile. Say are you hungry? Why don't you step inside your own little dinning room while we fix up some egg sandwiches...." *door slams shut*

    Well at least you have the story line well thought out!!! I see o issue but I would makke sure you gut it and skin it first or you are going to have parasite issues as coons carry LOTS of bugs in their belly.

    I've heard of people cooking and eating raccoons in the past, supposidely it tastes like squirrel. I'm sure throwing the good parts in the oven for a certain amount of time would kill most of the parasites.

    not trying tom discourage you but watch the next time a coon gets hit on the sider of the road nothing eats then here they dry up now a rabbit gets hit and it is gone at dark the next morning it is gone but a coon drys up and blows away before anything touches it a chicken might eat it my quail are fond of spiders and flies

    Luv your sense of humor...just like mine. Lost a OEG Rooster a few days ago to a coon. Caught him the next night and he is now in training with lion dogs. And obviously I am still in a bad mood.[​IMG]

    I think that is a morbidly funny twist of fate for the Coon you catch!
