I nailed that pesky raccoon a few minutes ago. The same one I shot the tail off of a couple of weeks ago. Hit him at about 12 yards on the run with 12-guage bird shot and a full choke single shot gun.. Got a clean shot at him this time and nailed him with one shot. The shot entered his left flank and came out his chest. This one's been a persistant and pesky little bastard!
