YOU CAN'T!!!BUT...Shooting them works LOL...No but seriously Raccoons are not really wild animals. They are urban animals. Raccoons are Far more common in cities and suburbs than they are in undeveloped natural areas Like the woods we Hunt....Raccoon-human encounters are very common and you can shoo them off but they will always return under the cover of darkness.I used to have 1 as a Pet and I know This... Raccoons are VERY SMART, curious, and agile, so in short, there's really no way to simply keep them away from your Corn or anything they want for that matter..They are very determined animals and usually will spend the WHOLE Night getting a FREE Meal...Night after Night.
Oh, and there is absolutely no such thing as a raccoon repellent that works. Because raccoons are so intelligent, strong, and crafty. Only a real, heavy duty fence will do the trick.
I do know this from growing up around gardening...They HATE Cucumbers and will not bother those but I have never witnessed Deer eating them either sooooo...Good Luck and I feel your pain...$8 a Bag to feed some Sneaky little Rodents LOL....That's why they are called ....BANDITS!!!!
