19 from under a house in Branchville, NJ. The people moved out and did not pay me. About 10 years later I got a call for groundhogs under a pool shed. When I got there it took me a minute to place the woman's face but it was the same one who stuck me on the skunk job. She refused to pay me for the previous skunk job so I put the word out to all the ADC guys I knew not to do her groundhogs or you would not get paid. Well one guy did do it and her check bounced!!
As to skunks I have found if there is a female there in February or March you will catch every male in the neighborhood sometimes before she comes out to be caught.

A few years back I had a guy that kept trapping skunks in his attached garage I told the guy that was not very smart and itís better to catch them outside but he did not listen. The problem came when he set a second cage and caught 2 skunks, the 2 skunks were moving nonstop banging his bait cans around and would not settle down. Ended up with 10 in the garage and 1 by the chicken coop.

It seems multiple catches are often big trouble Iíve had 3 in one cage that painted each other orange before I was done with them. I also had 3 in different cages that would not settle down at a place and everyone of them sprayed it was like they sensed the others were near.

In the last 10 days I caught 12 with not one spraying. One place they would move in zero temps and did not move at another place until it was above freezing so you never know. Iíd say maybe 3 out of 100 spray and of he 3 I rushed 2 of them and the other was just a crazy one.
