It was slow but it is starting to pick up. I noticed when it snows and gets frozen. I don't caught anything. But as some as everthing melts away. I caught critters. Hmmmmmm Well today I caught a small beaver in the picture I drew on the other day. I tried a swim thru in a new spot and caught a big otter.  :IBCOOL:  I need to get syringes for spotted skunk. I popped him not good. Lol  :puke: Where do you get doctor syringes to use on skunks?

any feed store type place should have syringes for livestock.  Go with the big ones, once you have them calm, skunks don't seem to care about needles or how big the needle is.

I am chasing a skunk myself. Since we are talking about dispatch methods, can I hear any of the ethics of the needle vs bullet? Acetone to the bloodstream sounds like it would create a blood pressure drop similar to some serious bleeding.

Never used the skunk pole method myself. I have doubts about it working well on civets. I will say a lot of guys use them on striped skunks and they seem to die fast or so they say. I have read where MEK (methyl ethyl ketone) is supposed to work extremely fast, better then acetone.
It was slow but it is starting to pick up. I noticed when it snows and gets frozen. I don't caught anything. But as some as everthing melts away. I caught critters.

Are you asking about syringes for dispatching skunks or for harvesting the essence? The ones for harvesting the essence are at the farm supply I believe but you would likely have to get he whole kit for dispatching from a trapper supply.

You can build the dispatch pole yourself. I bought the big seringe about 1" around and a stick of 1" conduit with the bell end. The plunger fits very tight in the bell end. I trimmed about an inch off the bell and stuck the plunger end inside. Works great but you need to have a hole cut in the trap so the pole and seringe will fit threw. Cost was about $5 total

Both Bruce... I was just milking it in a jar, but I think a syringe might work better. Plus I was thinking it would be hard to chase the little stinkers around my big cat traps. I was thinking the same think that most of the other trapper are going after strippers. How would you get one out of a big trap to a small trap and gas them? I was thinking of welding up a cover to place over a trap. But it needs to be small.  Or I could cut a 3x4 hole in the side and wire a cover. Then cut the wire to open the hole. Then wait and see if the skunk enters small trap or gas box. Whats you thoughts on this?
