Very nice! That's a good sized one and a great shot too.I have one or two that have been sneaking around my horse stalls, I've seen their big footprints. But I haven't been able to get at them because I'm overrun with skunks coming up from the creek. I need to thin the skunks but it's not fun having to retrieve their stinking carcasses late at night. Especially because you have to get really cleaned up before you come back into the house after dealing with them. Maybe I should invest in a hazmat suit.

I've decided to go back to trapping the skunks and drowning them there's little to no smell. I got a couple of fully enclosed plastic traps that are made for dunking. Plus a neighbor around the corner gave me a BIG stainless steel tub they used to grind hamburger into. It's perfect for dunking the traps into and no more BIG stinks. He said just make sure you leave them under water for 15 minutes or so. I said yeah you want to make sure they aren't holding their breath. He said he had one do that once and when he dumped it out of the trap on the ground he saw it take a deep breath and it's eyes opened. I asked him what did you do? But his wife beat him to the punch before he could answer. She said he slipped in the mud around the tank, fell on his butt and got squirted by the skunk. ;) She and I laughed but he didn't think it was that funny. ;)

John I've got a couple of those 'Havaheart' traps that are fully enclosed plastic. You don't even need a dunking tank. Just turn them up on end with the door end up. Fill it up with a garden hose. Works like a charm.

That a heck of a good idea. But i have a few older traps that I just have plywood around to conceal myself from the little stinkers. But I'll use the hose trick with the plastic ones. Thanks for the idea.

Hey JohnI use muskrat traps and ply them with cat food. Most of the time it kills them outright occasionally I have to coop them. Had a problem with skunks for awhile because a neighbor lady keeps feeding them. I got tired of bathing my dogs at 2 am and went to traps. Had a skunk one morning caught by the foot and he was pissed as I was about to give him a load of #6 shot, my neighbor started yelling at me for killing defensless animals and what an sob I was, I pulled the trigger and asked her if she said something. I finally told her that by feeding the skunks all she did was give me more targets.

We've got 12 coons, 3 possums, and 4 skunks in the last month on my buddy's property. It's been fun considering we haven't seen any deer while out hunting them! Haha.
