I went out last saturday on the south plate and tried to call yotes ( to windy on the flat land). started out with woodpecker had no luck so i tried racoon fighting on my fox pro and called one out of a tree 20 yards away from my 8 year old son and I. shoot the coon twice and still lost him, my son thought that was way COOL!!!. I was woundering if i could get any more tips on calling coons thanks.

Dirtnap,

Daytime Raccoon Calling is exactly what you described....A BLAST!!!
Check out this YouTube Clip:
YouTube - TBR Outdoors - Daytime Raccoon Calling - Predators: Round 2 DVD "Feel the Rush"

Also, here is a recent press release about some of our newest Raccoon Calling being aired on MOJO Outdoors TV....It airs tonight at 7:00 Central - 6:00 Mountain on Channel 608.

TBR Outdoors is currently in production of an instructional Daytime Raccoon Calling DVD. Some of our current footage will be airing on MOJO Outdoors TV next week. Daytime Raccoon Calling is a fast-paced style of hunting that creates Up-Close, In-Your-Face action that you won’t want to miss. Although we have been chasing raccoons for years now, the addition of the MOJO Critter brings ‘em out of their hole, down the tree and ready to fight!

Please tune in or set your DVRs to record the show.

Here's some information off the MOJO Outdoors Website: MOJO Outdoors TV
Calling Raccoons with TBR Outdoors
The TBR crew has started a new style of "Coon Hunting" with the MOJO Critter and an electronic caller. Most predator hunters have never seen this, but after today I sure would hate to be a coon.

Pursuit Channel --- Direct TV Channel: 608
Show Times:
(MARCH 1) Monday 12:00 AM Eastern / (FEBRUARY 28) Sunday: 11:00 PM Central, 10:00 PM Mountain, 9:00 PM Pacific
(MARCH 2) Tuesday 12:30 PM Eastern / 11:30 AM Central
(MARCH 4) Thursday 8:00 PM Eastern / 7:00 PM Central

For a sneak peak at some of our other footage: Check us out on YouTube – Search “TBR Outdoors” Posted Image
YouTube videos include some hunts from the TBR Outdoors - Predators: Round 1 and Predators: Round 2 DVDs

Feel the Rush,


Richie
TBR Outdoors

I am going to be trying this come Fall. I am really looking forward to it. Is .22 mag enough gun? I can't believe it would be inadequate. What where you shooting that you shot twice and still did not recover it?

Edit: I just watched the TBR video clip and see in the comments where .17 hmr or .22 mag is recommended. I hope to be using a .17 rem or .17 predator in the future.

I have shot over 2,000 coons that were treed by hounds. I always use a .22LR. Just hit them in the head.

Mjllag, I've hunted with hounds over 20 yrs now and just got into calling in the last couple years. You need to go up to a .22 mag on calling, these coons are moving fast and will go from hole to hole in the tree. If you hit them and they get back to a hole you just wasted fur that you will never get. You and I both know that if you misplace a shot when you have a hound that a good dog will finish the coon off for you. I use a .17 HMR and my dad uses a .22 mag and the we haven't had a coon get away yet.

It is a blast but its best to have a partner to watch multiple holes. I've called by myself and had 2 coons charge in that came down the backside of the tree. I got them because they came down, but from past exsperience they don't all come down the tree.

I have, like mjllag, harvested too many coons to count both with 22lr and 22 mag.
In the 22lr I like target lead bullets and the 22mag hollow points. I mostly use the 22lr, but to each his own.
I have not used an e-caller but it should be interesting.
Keep taking your son as long as you can and enjoy it as much as you can, because when he discovers girls it is over, for a while.

I'd like to try it, but I don't have an electronic call with any coon sounds? Do you know of any mouth calls that will work and be less expensive?

I'd be curious to find out what you hit him with twice that you didn't get him back. From my experience on over game, I believe any magnum rimfire would do the trick as long as it's inside 100 yards on a critter that size.

Also, where in NE Colorado do you live? I moved to the Greeley/NoCo area back in November and am working to try and meet more hunters. Kudos on taking your son out too. My daughter was with me when I ended some prairie dogs last Saturday and got quite a kick out of it.

clw-A coon squaller of any kind could work but would be less effective than an e-caller. You could look at making your own e-caller and downloading sounds off the internet. I grew up just north of Salina and using the coon puppies series tapes from dennis kirk is lethal on coons in that area. If you can find an area that hasn't been over called you can really clean up and with a decent fur market you can pay for a calling system in a season. Its worth the investment.

From what I have learned you need to locate a den and set up as close as you can without being busted. An ecaller is the best and I also know some guys who use a mojo decoy and they say it works wonders. They told me they aren't like yotes and cats you can't call them in from long distances.

Last saturday we went out and called in our first coon during the day. It was a blast she was a old and very large one that was pissed when she came in. It was so funny to see when there all hunched up and mad, then they realize that something is wrong when the decoy isn't going anywhere but around.

Does any one ever have any luck calling them out of rock dens(crevises in limestone walls)? I know there are coon there. Seems extremely hit or miss to me dont understand why. If I am at a active den tree and it is alot better odds that something is going to happen. The rock dens are more active than most of the den trees.
