Brothers Harvest A Record Breaking Raccoon in Missouri

(Worth County) Two brothers in northwest Missouri’s Worth County will likely soon have the state record for harvesting the largest raccoon ever recorded in the Show-Me State.

Couper and Hunter Simmons called their local conservation agent and the critter weighed in at a whopping 35-pounds.

That’s about 6 and a half pounds more than the current record holder.

28-pound 8-ounces is the record that will officially be in the past after the brothers champion coon becomes the state’s new record holder when the new year begins.

The 28-pounder was also harvested in northwest Missouri, in Gentry County in 2015.

Coon season runs through February 28th.
