I had to shoot a raccoon once. He kept coming after me and I was on the ground. After the third time I moved and he still followed after me, I had to give it to him.

I had the same problem last summer. I live on a busy street across from the Police station and courthouse. When I shot the dang thing with the pellet gun, it didn't die. It flopped around. I had to get a plastic bag and run out and get it before someone came walking by

Hey gmherps I hope that you leave some stuff for me to kill when I come down to TX next spring.

Thanks for the picture explaining what a grinner is.

You'd never believe it. Sharks. Shot at them off a 350+ foot cliff in Hawaii as they swam around and under goats we shot that fell off the cliff. Some bounced or landed in the sea at the base, and my partner and I spent about a hour laying down, leaning over the cliff and watching the carcasses with binos. When we saw one swim under a goat, we'd blast away on full auto from a M-16A1. Don't know if we got any, but we sure did expend a lot of ammo trying.
If somebody tells me how to post a scanned picture on the site, I'll show you me and my partner, Doug Rogers, with a heap of goats we got. The picture was taken within about a hour of the shark shoot. These are the ones I was able to drag up without falling off myself. Very trecherous place, but I was young and invincible.
I also want to show you guys my bear. 677 lbs. Taken in late Nov in Pa in 97. How could I ever top that one?

I had a fox run under my stand chasing a rabbit. He gave up right under my tree stand and sat down. So I draw down on the little bugger thinking he'll make a good wall hanging if I can get the broadhead inbetween his shoulder blades. Just as I get the release to break he looks right straight up at me, that thunderhead broadhead split him open from the tip of his nose right down to almost the end of his tail. Looked like someone opened a zipper right down the side of him.What a waist of a good hide that was.

One of my archery buddies use to shoot the goats w/ his m-16 while harnessed to the helicopter when he was stationed in Hawaii. Said it was the best fun he had.

lots of varmints with a gun; Coons, possum, snakes, turtles, yotes, prairie dogs.

with my bow, the Oddest thing would be a wall in my house.
Had just got a Cartel mini for my granddaughter, and thought i'd see how far it would shoot (thinking about 10 feet). so i aimed down the hallway and WHACK, it penetrated the back wall... ooops.. definately will go over 10 feet!

In july of 06 i was home one afternoon and had gone out to get the mail. I come back and notice a huge turkey vulture sitting on the barn. It was sleeping, so for entertainment i got out the pellet gun and shot it once. It woke up, ruffled its feathers a little and moved about 5 feet up the roof. Then i got the idea to get my bow. Whenever it saw me come out the door it got nervous, so i had to go out the front door and sneak back through the alley between a couple other barns. I actually shot through the back door of a corn crib with a G5 Tekan. I hit him right through the wing joints and pinned him to the side of the barn. So i figured i should get him down...while i was climbing up there, he flopped around and broke the arrow, sending him tumbling down the roof. he actually fell through a small hole in the roof (its an old barn ) and into the hayloft...so i just had to crawl in there and throw him out.

another example of being thankful you dont practice the "eat what you kill" idea. those are some smelly birds i tell ya

I have caught a few in a live trap. they are mean and nasty. I make sure to make them good and relaxed before I put them in the garbage bag for relocation purposes.

Lot of coyotes with the .308, a few opossums, one at 10 yards while coyote hunting. Waste of a bullet, but interesting.... Crow with a bow 20 yards and a sparrow in the head at 30. Leupold rangefinders are the way to go! Firm believer in the RX-II.
