Have you removed from one spot. Just hung up with customer telling me i have caught 2 more for total of 8 from under his workshop. Beat my old record of 7. This time of year they have been all adults. The 7 were mom and 6 babies.
I guess got to them in time just before they disperse for mating season. Just odd for my area so many would hole up together.
Has anyone ran into a scenario likes this before? Sarge

I trapped a neighbors feed shed one year. 20 skunks, 19 coons, and 1 woodchuck with 2 box traps in one month. That ADC job was a moneymaker.

I did a condo complex where there was a cat feeder with about 20lbs of cat food dumped on an area of the parking lot. Cleaned up all the food , set 6 cage traps at twilight using the cat food as bait. Caught 6 skunks just after dark. Removed them and set 6 more caught them by morning. Caught 18 more over the next 3 nights.
Got paid per skunk. Had free bait ( cat food)

Cat feeders make ya some money.... grin

12 was not uncommon some years out of the same cage trap a few places produce up to 30 skunks the first time you work it. I get calls from one guy that gets 15-18 a summer at his place next to a GFP plot of land. Up to 13 at one place now had another one today so there might be more there.

Looks like 8 is low. The owner is happy. He will be happy once he can use his shop. He may not be happy with the bill. Sarge

Back about 16 years ago, I caught 8 skunks 1 year and 14 the next out of my mom's less than 3 acre yard. During the same 2 years, I caught 27 and 32 opossums, 42 and 58 coons out of the yard. I caught 1 red fox and 1 nearly albino groundhog too. I had 7 box traps set much of both seasons.

My mom and at least 3 of her neighbors fed a huge amount of feral cats and the wildlife was happy to join in. I caught the largest and best furred critters I ever caught trapping there.

Warmed up this week for a few days the skunks were moving some. They have better stripes on them this year some beige tint to many but not the yellow or orange tints we get in the wet years.

Late season last year i caught 14 in one spot. What I found interesting was only 1 of them was a female.

We'll see what that den hole produces this year.

Last summer I removed 19 from a farm. 6 of those were youngins. I caught and skinned another 21 from that same farm throughout trapping season. Ive only caught one so far this season.
