The raccoons would all die if nobody had corn out. Check

Maybe they aren’t worth a nickel and nobody is hunting them and there should be no closed season?

Nope, they wouldn't all die, but there might not be as many of them.
Yep.

It is often a matter of "big steps and little 'uns", as Herriot wrote....looking for one answer or one reason why something will work, will fail or is of no value has always been a loser, always will be a loser.
It often is most about not picking a personal favorite whatever to protect...or, perhaps, better put.... “To keep every cog and wheel is the first precaution of intelligent tinkering"---Aldo Leopld.

Too many tinker from a point of view over their own front bead or based upon what will generate high-fives for them from their very loose circle...ie ego plumping.

Big steps or small steps but, regardless, steps forward and out of the generated mud hole of doing the same old, same old, in attitude and all, should be the goal.

No closed season on raccoons is already the rule in several other states. Maybe a good thing to bring up during open house comment season. It might not happen right away but could eventually.

Folks, the problems facing turkeys, or grouse, or quail, or any gamebird, songbird, or even insect is bigger than predators, or habitat, or disease. It’s all of those things and more. Chemicals, pollution, climate change all play a part, and probably other things we don’t even recognize as yet. It’s not easy to be optimistic when you look more closely. I hope the study will consider the big picture.
