Dealing with coons

How do you guys keep the coons from destroying your mineral blocks/attractant sites? Or can you?

I really don't mind that they munch on the blocks so much, but there is a group of about five or six of them. They roll my blocks way out of my cameras line of sight, they assault my cameras, and I would assume when they're all together they keep the deer away. Not to mention they are there <span style="font-weight: bold">all night</span>! From 9:30pm to 5:30am: 200+ pictures of coons; no deer, nothing else.

So are there any (legal) ways of keeping these coons away from my sites?
