    i was fishing at this apartment complex pond the other night, about midnight, caught 4 and decided to leave bout 3 am or so.... im walkin toward my car to put a pole away {i park about 3 ft from where i sit and fish} and seen a big ol coon standin next to my driver side tire. i rattled my catfish bells and made a bunch of racket with my metal net, but he just looked at me like i was retarded, lol. thats when i guess he got heated and decided to run after me. im 6'3 and weigh 230, and u NEVER seen a big boy like that run in your life! he chased me half way round the pond, and when i came back, my pack of hot dogs were stolen. i shined my light on the tree line and there sat that fat ol coon enjoyin the hell outta my bait! next time ill be prepared lol! :wink:

    Had a Possum creep up about 2 feet behind my buddy.
    Hung up the phone with a BoC member and I turned around and saw it, freaked out. He freaked out, stood up and launched a rock at him. The thing hissed, showed his teeth and he wasn't going anywhere.

    We started freaking out, haha. He finally walked away.

    After that, put the bait in the bucket and closed it - wasn't having anymore middle of the night run ins like that!

    Never had a Raccoon raid me while I was out,,, had river rats slip in under my chair and grab the bait.

    That's good for a rush the first dozen times!:smile2:

    Was bullhead fishing one night with chicken livers and had 3 or 4 little coons about the size of kittens decide they like the smell of the livers but weren't quite brave enough to come get them. I decided they made good company so every time I rebaited I'd throw them a liver. That's been a couple of years ago, got a feeling now they'd come and get the livers if they wanted them:smile2:

    Man, any chance your apartment complex has security cameras? And if so wonder what they'd want for that tape?:wink:

    Well don't you know the FDA now says hotdogs are bad for you. Let the coon learn a lesson now! Besides that he was hungrier then you were. Coon was probably coming towards you cause he wanted petted ya think lol.

    id like to see a tape of that too lol, i know they are getting brave or something, i killed one a month or so back was setting about 5 feet from where my st bernard could reach him, in the middle of the afternoon, i threw a cement block at him and he didnt even move, so i grabbed a steel fence post and gave him the what for, walked right up to it and it just sat there in broad daylight? dunno if he had rabies or what, hardly no fur, but he became turtle food, seems like we are seeing more and more of them, i think we need more coon hunters and trappers :wink:

    I too had a coon try to sneak up on me and JerryB last Friday night at Hoover Reservoir. I think he smelled the cut bait i had sitting on a log. Shined my red headlamp on him and it didn't seem to phase him as he kept moving toward us, but when i hit him with the spotlight he scurried into the brush. He sat there in the brush ready to sneak up again until i started throwing rocks at him and he finally took off. Sorry you weren't as lucky man. I often have run ins with critters when i'm fishing. They must sense us city boys!

    lol,thats a good one.

    we had one coming up to us at salt fork a couple of weeks ago.he was a huge one too.he got to one of my poles before i seen him and he was sniffing it.then,we had a fawn come down by us,maybe 15 feet away,my brother seen it and jumpred,and it jumped in the lake and took off.

    rocky fork is bad for skunks.it is funny to see people take off running because they come right up to ya

    I WOULD THINK IF A COON GOT THAT CLOSE, THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH HIM. I JUST TRAPED 4 COONS AND ONE UGLY POSSOM OF MY PORCH. IT WAS A LIVE TRAP AND I TOOK THE LITTLE BUGGERS TWO MILE DOWN THE ROAD AND TURNED THEM LOSE.

    That there is some funny stuff right there. a few years ago, right after my wife and I move out here. My old blind dog was having a fit at the back door. I look out the back door see nothing so I head right out the door to see what was going on. The light didn't come on right away. Any way. I go walking out the door get about half way across the deck, when the lights come on. To my surprise I was sharing the deck with a family of coons. 2 between me and the back door and 3 blocking the way down the stairs to the yard. Standing on the back deck in my under wear with a family of coons I'm feeling a little vulnerable.
    (A little history beffor we go on. There was the worst looking cat you've ever seen try to keep her kittens alive when we moved in. Nothing but skin and bone, almost dead. I couldn't let that happen so we started feeding her and got them all back to a healthy state.
    Going on.) I"m thinking stay to rules 1-3: Never let the see you sweat. Don't swet the small stuff and every thing is small stuff. When out of the dark came one of the worst cats sounds ever made by and cat I've ever heard. And Bang shes on the deck Looking bigger than I thought she could along with 2 of her older kittens. Them cats bluffed those old coons and got between them and me and convinced them it was time to go. After that they were known as NINJA Kitties!
    those strays when I'd take the old blind dog out to do his chores 2 of them would stay right with him the entire time, One on each side. I called them his armed escorts. Never seen any thing like it before or since.
    Thanks for the laugh and bring up a few good memories.
