Should have went with you that day.
thenailk nows this story,happened before and happened again an hour ago. Had a couple of traps by the back deck as I get the odd rodent from the neighbours horse barn.
Had to pull the critter from under the deck to the middle of lawn and make sure it died instantly and left the hose spraying down the grass to get rid of the odor as it will leak out.
Redrider , The day we were there the cove was full of whales, dolphins and seals it was asum to see .the best day we ever had there just to see the wildlife .I'll try to send a little video clip that I took with my new digt camera .Hope I can get it to go through.Iguess it's not going to work
Live traps are great, as long as the skunk can't see you(not an open trap)
thenail and I have taken a trap with skunk inside,placed it on the back seat with the dog, drove out of town and thenail opens it and drops Peppy la Pu at his feet.
Won't spray, just wonders off. He has done it hundreds of times.
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
