Anyone ever come across aggressive raccoons in the dead of winter? This past December I was pheasant hunting South Dakota with some friends and two dogs. Temps were near zero with snow on the ground. We were pushing small islands of cattails on a frozen lake when my lab bumped into a big raccoon. The coon hissed and growled at my the dog. I pulled him off the coon and my lab immediately bumbed into another one on another island. I once again pulled the dog off, then the coon went after my buddy with his teeth showing, "barking" and growling. He shot the coon in the head and it was over. I saw more coon tracks in the snow heading for the other island so I got those guys and the dogs out of that area, but was shocked to see raccoons out in such cold weather. Anyone have the same problem in the dead of winter? I've bumb into them in the fall, but never during a cold snap.
