21 and 22 pounds are my biggest, shot though, not trapped.  Average size out here is maybe 10 pounds trapped and shot.

My biggest was 33 or 34 lbs, don't recall, but that was back in WI when I was young, shot over dogs.  I've only shot a few out here in WA, nothing huge, maybe 15 lbs.  However, I watched one try to get into my Havahart and is butt was so huge he couldn't get in.  The opening is 12" X 12".  This was a monster, I'm guessing 25-30 lbs.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

The biggest I've ever caught  with my dogs was 48lbs. It was huge. Most caught in the woods are around 10 to 15lbs

Biggest shot for me was 37.  It was a freaking hawg.  I tried to taxidermy it but couldn't find a form big enough for it.   I should have rugged it. 

I think they average 15-18

I've got a 28# lifesized, haven't weighed all the coons I've caught, but that was one of the biggest. Unfortunately we don't have a lot of coons in the NE corner.

I killed a hog of a coon a couple years back that looked like a pony keg with legs. At the time I was unemployed and I had no freezer space to store it but I sure wish I'd have rugged it out. I have an average coon that I had tubed that probably went and 20 lbs maybe?

We just finished and had a great season, I'll be updating my topic in the sponsor section soon, I don't want to distract from this topic. :tup:
