I can't believe this isn't here yet!
We had lots of issues with them in our apple orchard go figure!
Lay out in your yard early morning and late evening with fresh alfalfa woven in to your pubic hair and then hit him with a double bit axe when he starts feeding.
Just be veeerrrryy careful with your aim!
Dude! You are supposed feed that alfalfa to the cows, not smoke it.
Bubble gum. Binds them up.
Seriously? Do coons eat this? If so I will go buy a carton. Them varmints are messing with my corn crop!
I use a shotgun on the ground hogs that show up here.
For raccoons, get a couple of large live traps, dig a small hole place a can of sardines that you have punctured with a few holes in the hole place the trip plate of the trap over the hole repeat with each trap.
You can also bait the traps with a raw egg (fresh egg do not wash it, don't use store eggs, this bait will last a month if the raccoon doesn't get to it). Marshmallows, grape jelly, and sticky buns also work very well.
Make certain the trap is staked down, raccoons are powerful and they will surprise you with how smart they are.
After capture humanely euthanize the raccoon.
ETA: I understand that both ground hog and raccoon are good eating.
Sticky buns also work very well if you are looking to capture Firefighterjake.
Not surprised, they'd work well for a lot of us.
I've caught a few this year with coil spring and small conibears.
Set down in the hole there is little chance you will catch anything but the groundhog. Dispatch any way you want to. I use a .22LR, but a pointy stick will work since you are so close to it.
FYI. Groundhogs and raccoons taste like crap.
But if given a choice, i like groundhog better.
I am not familiar with what crap tastes likeâ€¦care to enlighten us? :cheese:
Crap tastes like groundhog and raccoon.
Ahhhâ€¦circular logic - gotta love it! :lol: :lol: :lol:
Do Car Road Flares work as good as Avenger Smoke Bombs? I use them for chipmunks!
Here is a tried and known good way of ridding your yard of various tunneling critters.
Get some gas bombs insert one in each hole and gas the trouble makers (remember to acquire all needed licenses and observe all applicable precautions).
