    He heard the door unlock and split then sat there out of the edge of the light.... Suprise for him is I lowered the screen in my screen door and got my Bowtech Guardian out..... Might not be his night [​IMG] if steps back into the range of the light im going to give him a razor sharp carbon fiber present [​IMG]

    Id normally trap em but all my coon size cage traps are on jobs right now or need fixing:(

    I hope you get him.

    Coons are just like rabbits though, if you see one, there's usually five or six.

    Maybe if we chant...Bad Bad Bad [​IMG] Bad Bad Bad ... it will get you [​IMG] enough to get that bugger! AAAAAAAAAAAAARGH! Danged Raccoons- they will do us wrong on soooo many counts. From cats, dogs, poultry of all types to our trash cans and gardens. They spread so much disease that they are just not even cute! [​IMG] So keep that screen down, pull up a chair and dooooo that good deed for you and the rest of us! Bad Bad Bad [​IMG]

    Bowtech Guardian is a Bow and I think I have his whole family because they havent stopped comming and I havent stopped flinging sticks at em [​IMG] Infact.. I guessing that I should be adding another notch to my belt any minute... Its like they go ona raccon web forum and give GPS co ords to all the other coons!

    If i touched a .243 ( I have a 6mm rem which is close enough) But anyway. If I touched that off in the neighborhood where my 2 family house is. SWAT would show up haha.

    I have gotten away with the .22 tho [​IMG]
