Exotic Meat and Game(click thumbnails to view gallery)
Although it's somewhat labor intensive, it's worth the effort, creating devotees wherever raccoon is available. People have actually been eating raccoon for years, as it's a readily available source of meat that is free for the taking if you have a little skill and the willingness to clean your catch. While it's not currently sold commercially, in many areas hunters are starting to sell their catch to interested buyers.
