    Raccoons don't like pictures of Davy Crockett ! Run off 1000's of copies and plaster the forest with them , they'll get the message !

    Ever grin down a raccoon ?

    No, I've thrown a bottle at one and it threw it back while standing up... We're on an Island and they swim over and get trucked back onto the Mainland. [8D]

    Not so sure about that. We were camping years ago with some friends and he set a bag of marshmellows on the picnic table behind us. In a few minutes there was a racoon on the table eating them while the dog went nuts. My friend picked up a nice size branch and starts to beat the thing. After a few minutes of getting hit and the dog going nuts he finally leaves with the bag of marshmellows. I have to agree with Red Rebels, only alergic to lead

    I would advise that anyone who wants to apply those products to the ground around their campsite check with the campground officials first to be sure it's OK. I suspect that some parks would say "No." The best way to deal with raccoons is to leave absolutely nothing out to attract them.

    I got to agree with Unstable on this one. Keep food in its proper place, don't leave garbage out and you should not have a problem with raccoons or other critters. However, we stayed at one campground and raccoons would walk right up to you, almost beg when were cooking or making smores. It was a county campground I'd almost bet many of the regular campers feed them, thinking it was cute. I did not. We will not be going back to that campground.

    I agree with keeping your food put away, BUT when they climb ur screen and tear it when it's brand new and there is no food in the pup and no cooking done inside yet either i have a problem with the buggers. [:(!] If I had a chunk of that lead ,,,,,,, well you know what I mean. I know, be nice to the little buggers they no not what they do... whatever.......................... [2C]

    Try peeing around your camp area at night...they don't like the scent of humans...serious!
