Hi all. We've had raccon problems at our house again. They've been dumping over our potted flowers about 2X/week which is a huge mess and frustration for my wife. I set a live trap baited with Cheetos (yummy!!) last night and had a coon in there this AM. I shot him in the head with a .22lr rifle while still in the trap from about 50 feet away because I was worried about the bullet hitting the cage and ricochetting. I hit him pretty solidly (I think) but he flailed around in there for so long that I shot him a couple more times. I'd prefer the quickest kill possible and was wondering if there's a "sweet spot" on a coon. I'd like to 12-gauge him but I don't want the people down the road to have to wake up to a shotgun blast at 7am, plus it would surely ruin my trap. Thanks!
