Well a nice elderly lady that lives close by called and asked if I could get the skunk that was under her shed, so I went for a look see and by the perfume eminating from under the shed there was a resident, you should have seen the look on my 3 year olds face when he got a wiff :lol: Any way we set a cage trap and the second day we had a coon

the very next day we caoght old smile'n sam

Still no skunk? But still aplenty o stink :? So I'm starting to think somethings up here like madey the sinker gave up the ghost under the shed, so I ask the owner if she had seen anything go under the shed she says yes a ground hog HMMM, I seen a g-hog tear the crap outa cat that went into it's hidey hole one time, could this be the same situation? We reset he trap and the next day another coon
Image
My cousin from Arizona happened to be back and came along for the check. What do you think of Hunters head gear and pistola ?:D Checked the trap yesterday and nothing, of course it rained cats and dogs so I didn't expect much. I'm pretty sure that the skunk is dead under the shed, but I'll give er a few more days and see what happens.

As usual IT2, great pics of the boys and catches. Whew...I am glad you put the info in about that pretty woman being your cousin----I thought you were giving us a BS line about the "nice elderly lady" :shock:

Everytime I catch 1, it's a LONG time before I can ever get ANY to go in that same trap, or at that same spot. I guess they know what happened to their buddy when he got in that "box". I put it up for a week, then reset, and I'll catch another one, though.
