Our raccoon loves to come on our back porch to eat our bird seed. I recently fortified the chicken coop with a lock and doubled the chicken wire, to prevent easy access to my gals at night but they do free range all day on our 10 acres. I have a .22 that I'm deadly accurate with and moved everything away from the bird seed on the porch. I should get a clean shot in the next few nights but he doesn't come until well after midnight. Never in a million years did I expect to be a 'coon hunter but it seems like the logical solution to the problem. It's only a matter of time until he realizes that our chickens are there free ranging all day. Anybody have any coon hunting tips they want to impart to this "wayward city boy" who now resides in the country?
