    Most people want to think coon hunting is a “dying sport” but right now it’s actually at its peak

    @Blake The turkey population should be a lot more than it is if coons are being managed.

    Looks like a really big coon judging by the tracks. They have their place in nature but definitely need to be managed more.

    @Cameron I’m not here to point fingers or try to have a peeing contest, but coons aren’t the only factor, birds of prey as well as cats and coyotes all will eat baby chicks

    @Blake then add hogs to the mix.

    Our family place is loaded with them. Trapped 7 coons and 2 possums in the last few weeks. Setting four traps one night out of the week. I would do it more if I had the time. Figure if I stay at it for a few months I might put a dent in them.
