What is the biggest raccoon you have ever seen?

Well, Couper Simmons and Hunter Simmons hunted down a monster of a coon at a whopping 35 pounds in Missouri, according to a recent Facebook post by the Missouri Dept. of Conservation.  Here is the caption:

RECORD RACCOON: Couper Simmons (right) harvested this 35-pound raccoon while hunting with his brother Hunter Simmons (left) in Worth County. They contacted Conservation Agent Brandon Lyddon, who weighed the raccoon at a certified scale. The current MDC state record raccoon is 28 pounds, 8 ounces. New records are determined at the end of the hunting and trapping seasons, which end at the end of February. Congratulations!

That’s definitely something to be proud of. Nice work!
