Default Raccoon down :)

First just want to say thanks to the guys on this site for posting their raccoon hunts, I learned so much from you all...

Here is today's story...
Since I am not having much luck with the coyotes lately, I figure I give myself a break and try to have some fun by combining a rabbit and coon hunt.

This afternoon, I went out to do some bushwhacking. I took along my .22 to hunt some rabbits and raccoons. I did manage to kick up one rabbit but no chance at a shot with the .22 but that's okay just being in the bush is rewarding enough.
I brought along my ecaller so when I came across a raccoon den type of tree, I would try and call out a raccoon. It turns out the only den type of tree I found held two raccoons. First one came out right away and climbed to the top and went into another hole in the tree before I could get around the tree for the shot. 30 seconds later this guy came out and I dropped him before he made it to his buddies location.

The hide was really good, a nice soft full coat of fur. I used a raccoon pup distress call.

For those guys that have never done it and are looking for a fun way of spending a few hours out in the bush, try raccoon calling. It can be really fun especially if you combine it with a rabbit hunt.

On a side note...... Lots and I mean lots of deer tracks in the cut corn, the deer are digging like crazy looking for those golden nuggets (corn kernels). So if anyone is still looking to fill a tag, find the food and you will find the deer
