    BowDeadly "LIFE IS GREAT" It's better with a bow

    A while back I bought what was suppose to be 2 GIANT 40 lb JUMBO coons from "Boob", I can't mention any names, don't want to tarnish his outstanding dealings on TAX/NET. I sent them to a highly recommended quality tannery and surprisingly they came back more like a med to large coon, if I didn't know any better I would think someone switched coons on the way to the tannery on me or they shrunk their ass off after tanned and that didn't happen. They only measured 2 inches less after being dry tanned. Glad they were for myself and not a customer. I just suggest when dealing with "Boob" you request a weight and measurements unless you don't care. I know what a 30 lb coon should be, I had one that I weighed, it was a giant. When looking at what looked like huge 40 lb. coons I bought two.
    After getting screwed by "Boob" I contacted and talked to many many trappers and tanneries and fur buyers, giving then skinned measurements they all agreed that the coons I bought were only 25 pound coons, that's a big coon but not a 40 pound JUMBO coon, not even close. I spoke to a couple coon trappers that catch over a thousand coons a year and some monsters. None of those monsters never weigh 30 pounds, usually 20/25 pounds. All the fur buyers I spoke with that buy thousands of coons every year told me 40 pound coons are usually 20/25 pound coons in most trappers eyes. Very rarely do any fur buyers rarely see any 30 pound coons, they do but not often, never a 40 pounder unless a pet and they are nearly unheard of. BEWARE GET WEIGHTS AND MEASUREMENTS IF YOU WANT SOMETHING SPECIAL.
