Calling Raccoons is not only doable, it is very exciting!
A few tips to get you started:
1) Set up to the back side of the hole (on the den tree) you are calling....this makes the raccoon much more apt to come out of his hole instead of poke his head out and look at you.
2) Play the Raccoon Fight or Raccoon Distress...either will offer success
3) Be quiet, they aren't always asleep in their hole and if you make too much noise, they will be looking at you before you ever get sat down.
4) Have some fun, it is a heck of a time.
We are in production of a Raccoon hunting DVD that should be out in 1Q of next year. Keep on the lookout...here is a preview of some of our success.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fq4CEef-1p4
