Although I am a knife, collector/Trader/Seller ,in that order I am a history buff, when I started researching Colonel Coon It has nothing in Wikipedia, I am not versed on this enough to create a Colonel Coon page, but I feel some of you long time coon hunters are. This does not cost anything and it's history should not be forgotten. This would help any new coon hunters, Thanks, Donnie
