This varmint has been raiding some Shaw Island chicken coops.
Got out of the MG 30yard shot with my Ruger 22 long target handgun
Varmint no more winking smiley
Heaviest one in more than 55 years of hunting Coons.
Skinned the tail for a coonskin hat (Danel Boone)

Nice one! smiling smiley

We seem to have more coons than people where we live, possums too, due to the area we live in shooting them isn't really an option (though it "may" have happened a time or two) so we live trap them and take them for a swim....

Haha! When I read the subject line, my first thought was "how did he get the dead deer on his luggage rack!

I should know better, I've never been hunting for anything larger than a pheasant.

He is a plump one, and for those who question the MG content, obviously this is to demonstrate how an MG is an excellent hunting vehicle, providing lots of visibility. smiling smiley

NICE. I've wanted to mount a pair of guns on the bonnet of my '72 Midget, which wouldn't be frowned upon here in Maine, but am thinkin the inspection requirements would interfere -

That is one big fat coon alright and will make a great hat! smileys with beer

Next thing you'll tell us though is that you used a mirror over your shoulder and ricocheted the bullet into the coon at night!grinning smiley

You need a pair of coon hounds. My two killed a racoon a few months ago. Damned thing decided to fight rather go up a tree. Bad decision on his part. The Great Dane tried to help but really understand what needed to be done.

In the end all three dogs had to go to the vets because they got a few nice wounds in them.

I dod not take them in my MG. Are we still off topic?

In reply to # 3908537 by ricornc Jeez, whats this got to do with MG's.

I thought the title was "Went out hunting with one of the MGs"... I just assumed he meant "Machine Guns". I mean, who doesn't?
