Donít get swamped
Raccoon hunters must deal with ditches of various depths and widths when following their dogs to a coon or at the end of a successful cast.
Water that is deeper than the tops of hip boots is sometimes crossed by walking or shinnying across the water on a fallen tree. Bold hunters often go into the water deeper than their hip boots, filling them with cold water. Seasoned hunters find a way around the water by circling the area in a pickup or on foot.
A GPS unit with a mapping feature helps sort out potential pathways to get to treed raccoon in the dark.
