Good for you! I hate raccoons more than just about anything. They are the most destructive little beasties there is.

Kim, don`t let your guard down. bout 2 years ago I had a coon seige. They were trap smart and wouldn`t go near a trap. Ended up killing 9 of them. Of course they killed 13 chickens and a duck before I got them all. Had to resort to The Recipe to finally put a stop to the carnage. I don`t have any $5 chickens. I breed exotic gamefowl and don`t own a feather worth less than $150. Bout made me sick before it finally stopped.

Wouldn't grilled coon be good for the girls? And, people? In this economy would there be a reason not to?

skin raccoon,,boil untill tender,brown in bacon or fatback grease,serve with cornbread and mashed potatoes,surprising how good they taste,and they won,t be harressing your chickens either,could add a bowl of turnip greens ,oops,,wrong thread,,,
