2 days ago I watched a crow pick up a egg from a nest 75 yards from My back door and fly off . I’d seen a hen out there couple times and thought maybe she had a nest but wasn’t gonna go looking and possibly screw something up then seen that. I went and investigated and never found the nest but found where the crow had picked another up and dropped it So either the nest was real small and new. Or it had done been cleaned out Idk how turkeys even exist with so many things after them
I'm not so sure that means we have more coons today as compared to times past.
It may be that coyotes hunt & kill more raccoons now than human hunters ever did.
In much of TN the habitat has changed greatly to be a little less favorable for raccoons.
But make no mistake, raccoon are major nest raiders, and I'd like to see their numbers kept in check. Actually planning to do some major coon trapping myself this coming winter. We started last winter majorly trapping coyotes. Will expand that to include a focus on raccoon with the next round.
