This thread needs a couple of good coon recipes. :drool:

They do NOT taste like chicken.  Maybe it's the fat, like Venison (Deer), where all the bad taste originates.  With that in mind, I'd try canning.

1 Quart Jar.
1 slice of onion (put in bottom of the jar)
1 beef bullion cube (put on top of the onion)
cut the Venison into 1" cubes and pack the jar with as much as you can fit.
fill the air gaps with water.
Pressure cook.   90min at 15psi.  (consult your canning manual & recipe book for exact details, don't trust me!)
When finished and completely cooled, you'll notice all the fat is on the top of the jar, when you open the jar, scrape all the fat out and discard... the meat will be very tender, and almost taste like lean beef.

Small Stainless Steel pressure cooker, place a wire screen or basket in the bottom.
add just a little water, just enough so it is shy of wetting the screen.
place meat chunks into the basket.
pressure cook at 15psi for ???  an hour?
When the pressure cooker is cooled, open it and you'll see the fat is floating on top of the water, under the basket, off the meat.
If the meat is "done" it will flake apart so easily, it'll fall apart as you're trying to remove it from the basket.
Add your favorite BBQ sauce and serve it on a bun to your favorite anti-hunters at the Company Christmas Pot Luck Luncheon, and enjoy.
(When they ask, "Oh, this is all organically raised on my/uncle's farm."  If you did it right, they'll insist you bring it again, next year.  Did that for 6 years, feeding a bunch of whacko hunting hating liberals, Venison ... after one of them found out, she said it tasted so good, and went back for a 3rd helping, "It's too good to pass up!".  A 6 quart crock pot, and every year, it was the first thing to get eaten up.)

If you're into making Summer Sausage, mix the meat with anything and increase the seasoning just a tad, add some extra Smoke Flavor.
(When they ask, "Oh this is a family favorite from the neighborhood, RK has a big part in making it." - RK = Road Kill.  Make it sound like "RK" is an old fart who makes sausage.   I heard of a guy who did that for 18 years, till someone ratted him out).

If anyone gets "sick" ie.,the squirts, "Yeah, that organic meat is really RICH, even my dog get's loose occasionally."
All animals are created equal; Some just take longer to cook.   Survival is keeping an eye on those around you...

My husband's Son called tonight after he saw my sad comment on facebook about finding half eaten cats again this winter. Last winter I heard a cat screaming bloody murder, ran outside to see the biggest coon I have ever seen (size of a dog) biting a still alive kitten by the neck. Without thinking, I kicked it in the ass. It just turned and looked at me. I realized that was a bad move and ran back into the house.

I installed an outside camera and stayed up till prob 3:00 am every night waiting and watching. We loaded up the pistol and waited. When the coon finally showed up I would wake up my husband and try to sneak outside for him to shoot it. Coons are fast. Changed to shotgun and still didn't get a good shot. It still came back. Limping but still came back. By this time I had made sure there was not any food in the bowl for the outside farm cats at night.

Evidently, either he didn't die or there are more coons. I have found 2 half eaten young cats this week. My husband's son suggested this GM/pop mixture thing, and here I am. I can't stand the thought of my kittens being eaten alive. It just hurts my heart so much.

My reason for posting is...I want someone's assurance that my cats will not drink this and die. I would feel so bad.

That's terrible! :cry:
I guess you could use it something cats won't touch, at least they'll be safe, Coons aren't all that particular, they'll eat almost anything when they're hungry.
Good luck.

I have a small backyard (50ft X 30ft).

Part of it has a steep slope and scrub.

There used to be a Raccoon in the neighborhood, but my Wildlife cam this year shows nothing (but my wandering House Cat).

QUESTION: In such a small yard, if a raccoon died in its burrow, would there be an odor ? Because there sure isn't.

My cam has already caught 5 bears, several foxes, couple of coons, one cat the size of a dog, never did figure out what it was.
So far, I''m the only one that hasn't had any issues, but then, I keep all trash and feed locked away.

Yeah, it may take a bit, but eventually, something is going to drag it out in the open most likely.
Watch for buzzards circling in the same spot for a day, that's usually a 'dead' giveaway.
