William Feela, Realtor/Trapper!

My seller said something was taking down bird feeders on their deck.

I set up a Game Trail camera and as suspected it was a large Raccoon.

I then set 2 live traps, baited with Jelly...

In the morning he was in the trap.

I took him some miles away and hope he doesn't come back.

Why didn't I finish him off when I had the chance...?

Raccoons are protected and have a season in which they can be hunted and trapped.

A fine and loss of hunting privileges just is not in  the cards for me.
