Mississippi: Coon 4 Sale

Coon for sale, Port Gibson, Mississippi. February 2016.


So I was driving up to Missouri on the last day of February, having left South Louisiana behind.

Just north of Port Gibson, Mississippi, I saw the sign on my left: COON 4 SALE.

Wasn't the first time I saw such a handwritten sign along the road that day, but this time I pulled in to see what was what.

A gentleman had a lot of raccoon meat ready to go in his cooler.

You get your dressed raccoon with organs intact at 5 bucks apiece.

Dressed with organs already removed at 10 bucks apiece.

Interestingly, the man gets most of his coons from Missouri trappers.
