If it was easy it wouldn't be hunting it would be shopping.

Even with the finest pellet rifle in the world, shooting the most accurate pellet in that particular rifle, and sighting through a perfectly-adjusted scope with the world's finest optics, it all still boils down to the person holding the rifle . . . !

Yes coons do love anything sweet like honey buns,powdered downuts, and very good cereal lol.btw my gamo has some mods to it for increased power and has taken up to coyotes.and  I still thought that the coon was going to need a follow up because those bandits are some tough critters.

Thats real cool . What was the range you reckon? What weight pellet? This proves that by waiting for a shot rather than just letting one fly , you can get an instant kill and not a maimed animal running for a bid to freedom in horrific pain.
 I get real spewey when I hear about "the one that got away" with a bullet stuck in it somewhere , just because the shooter wasnt responsible enough to wait to get the life ending shot . I applaud you for your sportsmanship . 10/10
There's no argument between right and right,right?

Very nice shooting and great pics!  I
 have been putting out some old Froot Loops (not expired yet, but we just don't eat those), and something has been eating most of it almost every night.  I was almost certain that it was skunks.  Well last night I forgot to turn off the ding donger when I went to bed.  Around 2am, it went off and when I went to the window to see what was out there, it looked like a possum was walking away from the cereal.  I hope it comes earlier next time.  It's hard for me to get up in the middle of the night like I used to.
