Went to re-corn the cams, battery-up and swap cards. Sat in the tree between rain until it got dark. Right at dusk one healthy-looking raccoon came through the brush and down a little rivlet. I thought he would make a beeline for the corn, but maybe coons don't beeline.
Deer and raccoons barely tolerate each other at corn piles. The coons must snarl a bit and the deer try to back them offf.
Surrounded. When I see five coons on a corn pile, it's time to break out the hav-a-hart trap and start shooting them in the head.
When you get the head tilt....time to leave.
Backing them up.
Even the little ones get into it.
The head-tilt. Next, you get to fly!
Getting serious. The does give them a foot-chop.
On the other hand, very few folks have problems with the rabbits.
This is officially too many coons.
