"Faint scent of skunk" I'd be looking for a fox..... Not that skunks do not eat chickens.

So far one medium skunk. The land owner killed it. He learned not to shot them in the head. His wife is not happy with the perfume smell in the yard. I was hoping to get pictures but no luck. We caught it on cultured egg based bait.

Good to hear. Ground/whole hotdogs with a day or two taint puts skunks in a cage like nobodies business. Tainted hotdogs will handle most nuisance calls pertaining to skunks and opossum.

I wonder how ground hot dogs and cultured eggs would do for skunks and opossum. I bet it would turn a buzzards stomach.

It would be a delicacy plate for skunk and opossum. I would put money on it, that you would do very well on your nuisance skunk and opossum jobs with no other bait and lure besides tainted hot dogs. Just a fact, don't care what any "expert" says. Tainted hot dogs will do a number on them critters, even when nursing. My kids set for skunks and opossums for me they aren't hard to trap by any means, and they bring in good $. Like any other animal we trap for nuisance work, study their habits and tendencies and you'll increase your odds tremendously. That being said, you don't need to be a Dr. Dolittle and "speak" skunk language to trap them like some think.
