don't get me wrong, I am not an advocate of poaching or lawlessness. we have a season on coons in Ohio also, but our law allows you to kill nuisance coons around your home or crops. Coons have been such an aggravation and damaging to my property and truck patch, they get no passes on my place. Now away from my home and crops I would not bother one. Actually I pulled my dog away from one in the woods not long ago, we were in his turf. I was mostly just jesting, sorry for the offense. Ohio law actually states you must kill all nuisance coons you trap around your home and or crops and farm. When season is in there is no limit. I used to be a big coon trapper, but when the fur market busted I and most others quit, so coon populations exploded. I caught 13 in my garage one year and had to build a lock box around my dog food. Yes, I actually despise coons, I learned what they would do to fowl of any kind when we raised chickens and they chewed their way in and killed all but one of our hens in three nights.
