yupper, the Cheetah strikes again. I was just out having a smoke and my Rottweiler starts flippin out. I put him in the house thinkin deer were in the neighbors garden again. I grabbed the flashlight and saw another coon by their bird feeder. Quite a bit bigger than last nights kill. Out comes the Cheetah and I sneak acroos the yard to the neighbors fence,using it as cover. I get to the corner of the fence and hit the light. Still there but no shot. He was between the feeder and a wooden stool used to hang them. Douse the light and wait,clicking on/off every 10-15 sec. Finally he moves, headed toward the bushes along the fence and pauses for a second while I'm coming to full draw. THWACK! A grunt,a growl,and a couple last breaths. Lying in a pool off blood, drained by a Slick Trick and a HT-2.
little did I know, the ol' man was standing at his kitchen sink,watching the whole thing out the window. He came to the door when he saw me with the light on the coon. He was very pleased and told me to just leave it lay there by the feeder so he could show his wife in the morning. Lol. Oh yeah, it was bout a 14yd shot, 18-ish lbs.
