Stunning. Simply stunning.

I loved the pics of the raccoons too. How did you get them to trust you like that? I never see any around here. I know they are out there though. They get in to our trash.

leave dog food scattered on the ground,Put the food out after dusk every evening. rub the food between your hands for scent.after a couple of weeks you will see coons watching you spread food.when you are sure the coons are ther break up cookies and mix with dog food.let them get a taste of the sweet.after a few days throw cookies toward them, leading them closer and closer,soon you may offer cookies from hand.once one takes cookie, rest will follow suit.I feed dog food every evening,cookies ever other Night.after a while they will gather around you when you put out the dog food,much like chickens when you feed. do not try to pick one up. I found that if you are seatedin chair sometimes you may pet backs.once in a while one will get in your lap.

Get in your lap? I don't think so.

I would try feeding them, but I have a dog who isn't very smart. She is, but she isn't. Like she got sprayed a skunk and she will still chase them if she gets a chance.

I did manage to get the ducks to come within two feet of me this year. The babies. It took awhile of me feeding them corn to do it. Now they practically attack me when I walk out of my door.

The ducks will let me pretty close them but not like this year. Maybe they are in a recession too.

The same feeding will also work for Bear. The best time to start with the coons is in Dec. food is not plentiful so the coons are receptive...that gives you four months to tame a few...Those few will bring thier young to eat dog food and cookies, in latter part of may thru July.the baby coons will be easy to tame and in time you will be able to handle them. the black Bear you have in and around Hiawassee are nothing but Bigger racoons, they are of the same family.I have a pair that I feed cookies to, and have found that they love vanilla ice cream, but that gets costly quick. We call them Honey Bears here for they are blond colored not dark...the coons are leary of quick movement,as or the Bear. Once the Bears learnyou than they are like a large dog. they will smell of you lick nip and rub thier head on you.
