I have a friend who has 007 coons on his ranch. I have had problems in the past with the little guys messing with feeders but these coons take it to a new level. They have figured out how to unscrew the varmit cage and make it swing from the feeder, then they enter the varmit cage and use it as a recliner while they spin all of the corn out.

Has anyone else ever had dealings with coons like these?

That's hilarious!! Looks like you need a new holder on'er for the cage.

At least turn on a football game for him while he is relaxing and having a little dinner.

I think the bigger issue is the leaning feeder.

Have you consulted with our resident coon whisperer, RAB?

I had to use bailing wire on my cage door because they were pulling the top corner where you open the cage at and stretching their shoulders inside the and spinning away. realmad Reinforcing that top corner of the door and 4 duke traps have temporarily solved my problem up

Agreed, if that feeder tips over...that Coon will sue for injuries for certain!
