Any ideas on how to get rid of all of these raccoons? Not only are they eating a good percentage of my corn, they are also ganging up and keeping the deer off of the corn. I really don't want to put live traps or leg traps around the feeder. I don't want to turn a coon hunter loose on them either. As you might expect I want to keep the disturbance to a minimum. I've considered putting a can of spiked sardines up the tree but that is probably illegal not to mention secondary and unintended species being affected, so that's out. My wife says that they are cute and just feed them too and don't worry about it.
