Got a skunk call after lunch today a lady that works for the Vet here had a nice skunk in a cage trap, turned out to be a large female I was surprised at the size of the pods on the thing. Tapped close to 2oz from it not a bad haul for 1 skunk it would be nice to get 100 like that. 4oz bottle

That stuff will eat a guys hide off even with latex gloves on if you spill any don't think I'd drink it! LOL Just pour a large amount out at one time and things start to spin and pepper spray comes to mind.

I wonder how old it is? 5 years of eating cat food?

Why are the sacs removed?


2x kinds of trappers
1. humble/inquisitive enough to learn from all sources: young & old, near & far, written & verbal
2. Legends in their own Minds

Sacks are removed to drain them better and to grind them for skunk glands or sweet skunk plus it keeps from getting the smell on the pelts once you defuse the pods the rest is a breeze. Skinning with the skunk glands in can cause problems and your losing money in doing so essence and pod wise.


Wife's a farm girl plus I save the skunks for the last thing of the day and in colder weather they can sit a bit before they get tapped, once in the house the duds go in the washer and I hit the shower right away. Last night I podded that skunk and bottled some sweet skunk for orders so it's time and odor management control.

That's just a striped skunk too bad it was early Oct and not Nov the pelt was flat and it did not tan well no telling what she would of weighed in Nov. A 10 lbs skunk here is very common with a few 14 pounders every year that show up lots of 12s with 6 lb being on the smaller end of the scale.
