A SCHOHARIE COUNTY COON HUNT

I am going to tell you of a walk that turned out to be a 'coon hunt. My brother-in-law, a boy of fourteen, and myself went out for a stroll one beautiful October morning, one of those kind of morning's that makes every true sportsman's feet itch to be in the brush with his gun and dog. While strolling through the woods we came across an old beech stump about thirty feet tall and I said to Harry, "That looks like a 'coon tree." So we walked down to it to investigate. About five feet from it was a hemlock tree that was all scratched up. Well, you know how a coon will lacerate a tree. While I was examining the hemlock Harry looked up and he said to me, "What is that up there on that limb?" I looked up and sure enough there was a nice young 'coon, so I said to Harry, "You watch him until I get a stone and knock him off." But before I got the stone "Mr. Ringtail" ran across and went in the beech. So I shinned up the tree and sure enough, there were five young 'coons looking up at me. So I sent Harry home to get my gloves and a bag, also a rope. I stayed on the tree and watched them until he got back. I took them all out of the tree alive, put them in the bag and tied it shut with the rope and let them down to Harry and believe me, I did not have a finger on my hand that was not bleeding when I got through.

I brought them home and put them in a pen and kept them until they got quite tame, then sold them alive for a good price.
