Didnít understand why all the employees where so happy to see me last Tuesday night but now I do. Made 13 sets at one of our yards that night. Full traps the next morning and every morning after. Had 8 yesterday and didnít have time to bait traps, but this morning had 3 more waiting for me in un baited traps. 23 of them have came from a 1 acre area with 7 traps crazy I mapped out the total area Iím trapping today on a farm program I have and it showed 29 acres and some change. They definitely had a problem. Iím the new feedlot hero. Just what I want to be known for sick pic is from yesterday. Pretty sure Iíll hit 40 buy the weekend

Nice catches. Were the skunks eating the mice that were eating the feed?

How do you skin them without getting the smell everywhere?

Dang Marty nice job! That's a serious infestation of stinkers. Good to thin them out for sure.

Awesome! I'm sort of surprised I haven't caught on of those buggers yet this season...

Rich Kasper broke down the numbers one time and swore he made more per skunk than he did muskrat or coon. I think he was happy to see them- the wife and kids who knows LOL

Great question!! If handled right the donít stink. A skunk is cleaner than any coon you will catch. Cat with stripes as far as Iím concerned.

I had a pet skunk for a while-very clean little animal.Trained to a litter box very easily-just like a cat.

I wonder who holds the record for most skunks caught in a fur season?And how many.

Nice haul.

Iíve never seen numbers like this in such a small area. I trap it every year for coyotes and coons and donít see these numbers. Iíd be curious of your thoughts or maybe itís not out of the ordinary. Iíve never seen anything like it. One mile west at a ladyís house I took 10 by her chicken pen.

I had a couple places that I took high numbers in a couple areas over the summer. Numbers were high in other locations those years also getting 9 larger skunks was not uncommon those years in the same cages.

Thatís what Iím seeing. Lots of toads. Iíve caught a couple that seemed real old and only their heads appeared to be infected with mange. Is that just a product of old age or do skunks get mange? Never seen it before. I can post pics tomorrow if it. Didnít skin them because they looked bad

I've seen that before in old skunks. Up on the head and ears and around their eyes. I've skinned some like that, and not sure if it's mange or not, Brad. Looks like it, but have never seen it anywhere but what I discribed. I wonder if it could be some other skin condition, but that is speculation. You got a long way to go to catch up with Mick Meyer, aka Ks Skunk Man! Someone ask about a seasons catch, and Mick used to ship 130-165 a year, but the last 3-4 years the skunks have gotten scarce. Here at home, I haven't caught one in four years, but a few roadkills are starting to appear, and I skinned the first in about three years that the local golf course catches and call me to come and get!

I always wondered if skunks got psoriasis similar to people, I noticed the thickness of the hide when saving the skulls its very thick like shoe leather.
