This bruiser keeps harassing chickens at an Amish friends house who has a sweet night vision scope ,at midnight it's like high noon,black and white digital.Popped his noggin with a 17 HMR at 110 yards,about a 2000$ Pulsar night scope.He has kill permits for deer and these varmints,but doesn't use them unless absolutely necessary.

Those aren't chicken bones laying around him. He's just a pup, feet aren't big enough to be full grown. Your buddy better be on the look out for his pappy. He's the real chicken thief.

Sir,not being confrontational,but I was GH hunting there today and that coon is a solid 15lbs 6 OZ,the pic is misleading ,bones are where they dump fallen lifestock and anything a predator eats. Makes for good coyote shooting in fall,winter,spring.I taught em that trick,15 lbs is a big coon,at least in Ohio,however I've dispatched,injured road hits on the job that exceeded north of 25.

Pic is deceiving. Yes 15 lbs is a decent size coon. We used to cut up frozen dead pigs with a chain saw years ago for coyote bait. Hard to handle a big old frozen sow that died. Worked great for bait.

I agree i've seen some huge ones on the interstates I patrol.That night vision worked so well I went and bought one,waited till the Amish friend bought one to see if it was any good,those boys got the money and buy anything hunt or fishing related they want.
