looking at my NAFA stuff, last year average for eastern north central coon averaged 10.83. the newsletter i received a few months ago (if i remember correctly) said that prices were expected to stay the same or drop this year. Fur prices jump around like crazy, so don't expect much and maybe you will be pleasantly surprised when you bring them in. dont let up on em though just because of price. it will at least be fun and you could learn something that will help you in the future when prices go up.

I looked it up Northern XXL coons put up right 10-20 dollars. If you have a bunch it could be fun and pay for your fuel
If it's brown it's down

Have yawl ever skinned out a Raccoon Pelt?
There is a lot work that goes into getting a pelt ready to sell...
First we been making Jokes on TH about who had the fattest Raccoon
Well that Fat must come off the skin or your hide will bring less money...
and if you nick the hide while trimming it out that counts against ya hide.
I am not sure I would go through the trouble these days for a $10.00 hide
unless I was back in the 60's and 70's and that's the only way to eat and pay a few bills.
