I checked the archives and couldnt find what im looking for. I need a good HOMEMADE skunk lure recipe. I dont mean one that has a bunch of stuff in it that i have to get from a dealer. I need a recipe that i can make with common house hold products. Thanks in advance.

eggs,fish,p-nut butter/jelly/syrup, really I believe anything will attract a skunk.

If you aren't on them or you dont have many, then you wont catch many.Typically skunks arent hard to catch if you have them. Set up around old buildings, brush piles, hay storage areas,edges and trails.If you set these areas and still dont catch any skunks you just dont have them there.

Oh we have skunks here. I shoot em in the yard all the time. I just cant seem to catch any in the spots they used to be. I had one that i was smelling every day, so i knew his den was close, but i never could connect with him.

After you catch the first one, make sure he sprays and reset. You'll catch every skunk in the country, they can't resist the smell of another skunk.

I worked nights at first brands in Amherst county Va tuna salad sandwiches seem to be able to do the same thing. But the ones I had in the back yard I used cheese to capture them with.

I quit using eggs or sardines in my dry coon sets cause it seemed I would catch about every skunk in the county. Buzzard probably would sell you a good skunk lure for 50 bucks or so.
