Is there a way to avoid catching skunks in sets intended for fox or coyote?

Set back away from fence lines. And dead piles stay back 30- yards.

I have tried pan tension, lure instead of bait, even location and still canít keep them out when they are in the area.

Good luck and let us know if you figure it out!

At this point I'd rather see a skunk in my trap than a coyote.

Skunks are valuable, as much or more than a Georgia coyote

Skunk is worth more than a lot of other fur, now.

I donít mind skunks in my sets. First, they pay for some gas between the essence and fur, and second some of my most productive canine sets ever have been remakes after a skunk catch. Something about it just makes it a canine magnet.

I donít mind them either. Manly because my sniffer doesnít work very well. Loud bait is a big factor on how many non target animals you catch. IMO
