These damn racoons. No sense. They have to hang around to eat cat food instead of fishing out of the river behind my house. I got the big one back in July.....after the Rottweiller took it'* right rear quarter panel out, and the Boxer took it'* tail......nailed him between the eyes with a .22
The big thing here is that my male Boxer is getting old, and a coon can do some serious damage. Then to make it worse, the stupid 'coon tree' is a 100 year old western red cedar right in front of my porch. AND the kids have cats. Coons and cats don't mix.
So this big coon last July beat me to the punch by breeding. Twins. Not 15 minutes ago, I walked out on the front porch and saw one eating cat food. Ran back inside, grabbed the flashlight and crossbow, ran back outside, and NAILED THAT BASTARD!
Got him climbing the tree. He landed a good 15' from the base of the tree. He made it another 5' before he croaked. You guys wanna see the bloody crossbow bolt? (crossbow arrows are called bolts for you uneducated pukes). This bolt landed about 2' from where he did. Went right through. The neighbors (Jseabert and company) made me promise to show them the kill, so I'll let Josh post on the kill when he sees it in the morning!
Now THAT'* what I call a KILL!
