Here's a picture of my daughter with a racoon I called in this past year. There's also a picture of a nice gobbler I shot last fall.

Edit: I couldn't get the picture to come up so I posted a link to my photo album.

Thanks for your kind words and helping me get that picture posted. For those of you who have never went predator calling, you don't know what you're missing. I do most of my calling at night, and it is definitely an adrenaline rush when you see a set of beady red eyes sneaking up on you.

I sure will post pictures Del. I am looking forward to seeing Arizona. I hear it is beautiful country. My hunt is not until December, and I am already counting down the days.

Hi Deerslayer,
Well actually he was only about 1/2 that. Maybe 15 pounds, I'm not exactly sure. I did bag him in February, and that means he was hibernating for a few months and probably had lost most of his fat. Thanks for the kind words.

Doug I am surprised that your daughter could hold the racoon up with the size that it is.
That smile on her face is priceless!

Hi Vipress,
Well, I shot the racoon on a rainy warm night and took it home and layed it on the porch, planning to skin it the next morning. It turned really cold overnight and froze the carcass solid. My 4 year old daughter is only propping up the racoon. Most of it's weight is supported by the ground. Glad you guys liked the picture.
