Racoon hunting regs

Thread starter #1
So I'm going camping tomorrow on a wma with the family. Saturday morning I'm going to do some squirrel hunting with my oldest. So I'm getting everything ready and I get the idea that maybe it would be fun to do some coon hunting tomorrow night before we turn in. I grab my regs book and start looking for what I need to know but there's nothing. Just season dates and bag limits. I can remember in past regs books things like what kind of light you can use and so on. Can anybody help me with the rules for racoons? I don't want to end up getting into trouble out of ignorance. Also we won't be using dogs. Just a nice walk through the woods and a lot of hope so if anyone can share some tips for spot and stalk on coons that would be great. Thanks in advance.

Just stick to squirrel hunting during the day! Going to be hard to convince anyone you are coon hunting without a dog! I'd get some sticks/ marshmallows for something to do at night.
