I'd try it once. Maybe it's kind of good??

Years ago, I had racoon BBQ that really was quite good. I didn't know what it was until after the fact, but I will admit it tasted fine.

When I was a young man, me and a friend would hunt racoons and rabbits to sell to an older guy down the street.

He paid $3.00 for a raccoon and $2.00 for a rabbit. I was able to buy a bunch of .22 ammo with that money.

THERE IS A BIG COON FEED EVERY YEAR DOWN BY GILLETTE, AR. WE WOULD BE DOWN THERE DUCK HUNTING AND IT WAS AROUND THAT SAME TIME - EARLY JANUARY. WE NEVER WENT BUT I GUESS IT WAS A BIG POLITICAL RALLY TYPE DEAL, MISS ARKANSAS I GUESS GOES EVERY YR AND EVEN YOUR BOY SLICK WILLY USED TO GO OR HAD BEEN THERE I GUESS.

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE OLD HILLARY CHOWIN DOWN ON A COON LEG.

LAST TIME WE WERE DOWN THERE THEY WERE SAYING THE RUMOR WAS THEY WERE HAVING TROUBLE GETTING ENOUGH COON, NOT CAUSE HILLARY WAS COMING BUT BECAUSE LESS PEOPLE TRAPPING THESE DAYS.

When I was a kid, a long, long time ago, a buddy and I went out spotlighting at night on a lake to see what we could see. We spotted a coon and like an idiot kid I shot it. Why, I couldn't tell you. Anyway, the folks we were staying with had a fit and said that if we shot that thing then we had to eat it. We skinned it and BBQd it. I would have just as soon eaten my boots. Tough as nails and dry as a bone. Never ate another coon. Never shot another one either. I like to watch 'em though.

Coon Stew

1 large coon
1 cedar plank
2 gallons water
1 tbsp salt

Boil all ingredients for 4 hours

Throw away coon. Eat plank.

WOW!!!!!!! yall cant be serious.Havent eaten koon? ?Whats this world coming to?I grew up rooten and tooten baked sweet taters and koon.My granddaddy had two of the best treeimg walkers the bottoms have ever seen. We hunted religously.Best times of my life in those bottoms.Yall should try my grandaddys recipe if your inerested and you get your nubs on some meat .F.Y.I. If ever you get koon meat already skint out,a true trapper will leave a paw attatched.(kitty kitty)

Heck, I'll try anything once. As a practicing Norweigan, I've been known to eat kluub. Anyone out there now what it is? Ate Rocky Mt. Oysters one drunken Oktoberfest morning in Denver.

I've never heard of it. What the hell is it?

Jim

Kluub ingredients sound alot worse than it tastes. It's cow's blood mixed with flour and pork back and made into balls and then boiled. Once it's boiled you slice the balls and fry the slices in butter. Salt to taste. I know, it sounds horrible. It smells awful when it's being mixed and boiled. But, it's actually very good. It has the texture of liver.
Everyone I've been able to get to try it has liked it. Really.

Sounds very tantalizing, Doug!

Here in the lowcountry of South Carolina, coon is a delicacy for many black families. They really know how to cook it, and lots of them love to serve it during the holidays.
Many of the old timers talk about when raccoon was the only wild meat available, before our deer herd rebounded in the late 60s.

Holy Cow...'er...Coon! What a wealth of comments! MY neighbore just moved into MT from Washington (hey guys!) and they caught a big 'ol 30 lber or something like that and baked it up...said it tasted like pot roast..what!!! As a Red Angus cattle rancher, I'll take thier word for it! Maybe I'll try her later...like in the afterlife! Killed to many of those infested critters in my life to be able to swallow one I reckon. Hey, I am in AZ meeting relatives I haven't ever met...one of them trapped a RED COON in Nebraska decades ago...thought he trapped a red fox and it was a coon...he was offered $1000 for it then but kept it...one in 20,000 odds I hear...anybody eat red coon? I saw the pelt, pretty cool!

Hey Luke, I've never seen a red coon before...but I partied with Red Fox once!!!!


O.K., no...I really didn't. But, I did stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night!!


(Nope, sorry, didn't do that either.....)

I say Hanback hosts a 'coon eating festival this summer. Who's in??!!

The only thing a coon is good for is a hat! Their always destroying something. They get in your attics and tear the place up. They hang upside down on your feeders and mangle up your spinner mechanisims. Their a pain in the butt! Unless im starving I would rather eat something like a squirrel or rabbit.

coon is actually very good on the grill if cooked right. if you wrap it in some foil with sweet tators, brown sugar, onion, and butter and slow cook it....its actually awsome..
