Don't mean to be bashing, but I guess that I am just a pessimist. It sounds like they are trying to raise money for a good cause.

I feel like i need to apologize for my "what a waste" comment. Fund raising for vets is a great cause. My comment is the waste of the coon. Hides are pretty much worthless. Breeding season is starting. Why mot just have a money hunt.

Well I know down here we don't have crops to hunt on but if we don't thin our coons some they dye of distemper and it kills way more than we do. Up there where coons are thick around crop land distemper could be decimating so thinning them could be a good thing jmo.

That would work have at it. Most of our fur buyers up here will hardly look at a coon. Plus now most hides are rubbed or p burned.

If they only average one coon per hour over the three nights that's 2160 coons. I hope you have a big freezer.

Yep cant beat a prime dec coon. Hopefully the market will clean out all the stored hides in freezers.

I guess I don't understand why they want to go back to a format that didn't work then. The rules have evolved since then into the rules we use today. You can say what you want but our nitehunt forefathers drew up a set of rules that were needed and they have tweeked them along the way to make them as fair as possible. Sure their not perfect and they are only as honest as the men using them.
I don't see how this hunt proves anything other than who can slaughter the most coon. Say the winning team kills 50 coon, I would be ashamed to tell anyone I killed that many coon, but that's just me.

What is the plan for getting this event past the animal rights groups? They will certainly get wind of it and begin publicizing their predicted numbers of raccoons slaughtered in this event, they will use numbers in the thousands, possibly tens of thousands. They will certainly protest to the the governor, the dnr, etc. They will certainly ask for a court injunction to stop the event and most likely receive it.
They'll ' probably gain enough damaging publicity against coonhunting to move their antihunting agenda ahead by 20 years.

With coonhunter numbers as low as they are today, I wonder if their are really 300+ "coonhunters" out there today that see the sport as being so much about money.

If killing 50 coon put a 100k in my pocket I would live with all that shame.people kill hogs all day long around here for 12$ a hour.
