Collected a couple more raccoons early this morning, one with the KelTec PMR30 at close range (30 feet) and the other at about 60 yards across the stock tank from my ambush site. I've officially declared war on these pests until I can get the population of them back under control. I'm trapping and shooting on sight!

I love killing me some raccoons

Have you tried calling them with a predator call using fighting raccoon call?

Yes, I have, and with quite a bit of success. They come running to the sounds just looking for a fight and totally throw caution to the wind. They got nothin' but whup-[censored] on their minds!

Is this at night or during daylight?

A lot of luck at night, but in the last year or so, first light and last light of the day has been productive. I guess the increased population of their brothers has made it necessary to forage for food for longer hours.

I always want to try calling them but don't want to ruin my chances of killing pigs by scaring them off. I need to make a trip with the sole purpose of calling, trapping and killing coons and if a pig walks out well he will die too roflmao

I've never seen a coon called in, will have to try that one.

I think trapping coons is my favorite outdoor activity ever really. Idk why, but they're just fun to try and catch and the fur is beautiful. Freaky how much fat is on them too.
