(This is a old post)
I have tried a lot of of different lures and baits for skunks and have had little or no success with any of them, what I use the most is Wise butter popcorn, it will catch many times first night with the tube and in the springtime for babys with the large have-a-heart and putting 3 or 4 piles of popcorn in before the trigger and one small pile after the trigger I can catch a whole family at once and in the same trap, the first enters and eats at the first pile until he gets bumped in, he eats at the second pile and the bumper eats at the first pile, more and more skunks enter until one gets bumped across the trigger which locks them in. with skunks the have-a-hearts solid door gives a side to approach the trap without offending the skunks
Also to satisfy the professional aspect of customer relations I will explain how I taint the popcorn with Red-fish Powder for a lure, popcorn is the visual, red-fish powder is the lure.
Show me something that works as good Wise Popcorn for skunks and I will change!
I invest a hundred + every year on baits and lures, most are disapointing, with multi trap sets I will try the new lure/ bait first, if no catch I will bait one trap with somthing Proven to work. I plan to try the peaches n' cream soon and hope for the best.
I dont like using the popcorn, I use it because it works. and I dont catch CATS or Coons with it.
I just receved my peaches n' cream will try it today and hope for the best
