    im sure a sling shot could be used if ya hit the coon in the head, i use a .22 mag rifle an have a hard time sometimes knocking them out of a tree,last year my dogs treed a huge coon up int the top of this dead oak,i shot 6 shots into this coon in the head an neck area and when he hit the ground he still tryed to make a run for it,if it wasnt for the dogs jumping on him i think he would have ran off......good luck

    Coons are some tough little critters ain't they haha. I've never been coon hunting but I would like to go and I'm sure its fun. The only way I get coons are in 1 1/2 coils haha. I just happen to have two little baby pet raccoons I caught last spring they make great pets they live in my room and crap in a litterbox and sleep in my bed with me. The only reason they sleep at night is because I wear them out in the daytime haha. They are great pets and they are very affectionate towards me and they get along with my dog just fine.

    How long would those pets last if the price of fur was high? :)

    I've never coon hunted, but I sure do have some that I'd like to take out. These suckers eat a ton of corn throughout the year from my deer feeders.

    I couldnt sell my lil pet coons im too attached to them. I've made them mad before and they do get a lil feisty though but they don't ever really get downright mean. I've had them since the skin was still over their eyelids milked them the whole way up. But they are great to me except for some of their rampages on my stuff lol.

    Whoa that would be a little extreme haha. I wrote a play about PETA for school in my writing class. I had all of them being killed by cougars and catching rabies.... The principal disapproved and the actors were not able to act it out. They said it was childish for a 12th grader to write such nonsense.

    Yea I'm bring a bag full of feathers from the first turkey I get and puttin it in his office with his pissant cat for our senior prank. When he gets back it ought to be nothin but feathers everywhere. Think I might need more than a few turkey though, and kinda thinkin of puttin honey on em too. Then I'd like to see that crazy old man get on to anybody about hunting ever again. :D
