Heard some serious squawking about dusk last night and looked out to see not one, but five raccoons around the chicken house! I had my handy 17HMR leaning against the back door, stepped out and shot the first one. His buddies didn't seem to pay much attention, so took out the second one. The remaining 3 seemed a bit concerned about the carnage, but not enough to make them clear the area, so I shot the 3rd one. That appeared to have finally convinced the remaining 2 that it was time to leave.

Nice.
My brother just built a chicken house. I told him to put DP foot traps all around it.

Absolutely the right approach! I use the DP's all the time and harvest lots of the masked raiders, but had not set them up around the chicken coop because I hadn't seen any sign of them on my game cams for a couple of months. They must of been hanging around, setting up an ambush. . .

Looks like you got the slow learners.

Nice work!

Yeah; I couldn't figure out whether they were slow learners, didn't associate the rather soft report of the .17 with their buddies falling over, or were so greedy that they thought they might be able to pull out a chicken before their number came up. I've seen similar behavior in sounders of hogs but can't attribute it for certain to anything.

Coon heaven?

Coco the Gorilla and every single raccoon ever need to reside in lower heaven...permanently.

Just like men....... when there are birds around, we dont think well, and end up getting cleaned out.

Daaaaang! Nice shooting, but sounds like you might need an auto to take care of all them!

Good job! The only thing worse than them is a chicken snake.

Are you for 'hire'? I have plenty of coons. wink

Also, have a .17HMR but get varying results on corn bandits.

Good Lord, flintknapper! You have an infestation! I'd gladly pitch in and help you for free, but it's a bit of far piece from Mason to Deep East Texas! The commute would be a killer!

Good work! They never stick around for a second shot at my house!

Flint - had a similar situation here in Nac this past fall/spring. Couple nights with the 22 stopped the corn raids and chicken killin'...for a while! Them coons have been thick lately around here.
