#$%&ing skunk
« on: July 02, 2012, 11:47:32 PM »
 :bash: its been a two month war now with this freakin' skunk, and I swear by the time I move into my new house it will be dead, might even skin it and mount it, for this skunk is a very worthy opponent. I think it is trap savvy because every trick I can think of is not working for him. peanut butter nope, chicken nope, hot dog nope, cat food nope, fresh fish nope, tuna fish nope. I have caught about every damn cat in the neighbor hood, but not this stinky foe. He has killed two of my wife's ducks, sprayed my truck, and just been a pain in the  :ass: . Now we have 14 ducklings so he is by about every night, I am about ready to dig out my gillie suit go roll in the mud and lay out in the field and wait for him to show, but the damn horses will probably blow my cover. :bash:

I know a 10-year-old that could get him!  He's killed everything for 600 yards around his house.  :chuckle:

I have thought about using a duckling as bait, but at 2 weeks old I think it would be a death sentence for on to stick it outside all night by itself. The only full grown duck we have left is momma, and to go near her since the drakes were killed and the ducklings hatch you want one of those dog bite suits  :chuckle:

Put out a coon set.  That seemed to always work for me.  Oh do I hate those little demon spawn.

another little trick is to put a leg hold down and hang some bait about 8 inches above it, coons and skunks seem to lose their senses when they are trying to decipher how to get at the bait, they get to dancing around on their hind legs and snaparooney, you gottem...

The leg hold trap and elevated bait is a good suggestion. But get the permit for the trap first. Make sure the little duckies can't get to the same spot.
