I caught two 20 pound coons today. One weighed 14 pounds and one weighed 15 pounds. How much do your 20 pound coons weigh?
On a side note, both of these coons were big old boars. If you've caught very many coons, eventually you'll run across one that has only half a tail. With one of those coons, the tail was so tough that I ripped it out by the root when I tried to pull it. Try as I might I could not pull that tail. I had to cut it all the way to the tip. I wonder if that coon wasn't in some sort of process of losing his tail and that's why it was so solidly glued to the bone.
Endeavor to persevere.
