Landowner called today said I had 2 skunks at his house that he houses his summer workers at. I had a double a few days ago there, so I get there and I had a triple he missed the one by the A/C unit next to the deck. One had huge set of sacks, one large sacks the other average sacks. All big Pepes seldom get small ones during the winter here.

Tapped the sacks and started with a new 4oz bottle to get a accurate measurement of what they had in them. I ended up filling the new 4oz topped off another 4oz and still had some to start a new bottle. Almost 5oz from 3 skunks but we have some big skunks here Iím still surprised they are carrying that much stink they must getting ready for the spring nesting wars. LOL

Tough keeping track but thatís 15-16 in the last 10-14 days Iíll take all I can get this year the pelts are sellable so with the skulls and pods they re worth more them a yote this year will easier skinning. Love the warm ups during the winter months it gets them out and about.

I'm glad you're enjoying your pepe juice! That's what's nice with a rural acreage, eh?

Nice colors for those Dakota stinkers. I usually have ones with yellow-white stripes. I had 3 skunk skulls under a backyard spruce tree from last season getting cleaned up but when I looked this fall, they were gone. Too many neighborhood house cats walking around here...

If they had better stripes with less of a beige color tint they would be selects then the pelts would be top dollar but I have markets for them lucky we have huge skunks.

Those are nice, your skunks do look like bear cubs, especially when you walk up on your lab in some grass and she is eye to eye with a biggun!! I called her over to me and no problems but I have been out there when guys in a Suburban with a dog got sprayed, not good. It was a rental!!

Good looking critters Law Dog... I think everyone around my area has skunk problems, but considering I don't have a truck or an outside facility to skin them .... I tell them NOPE I Want anything to do with them.

After my son caught one last year, wifey said, NO MORE! I caught one around Thanksgiving, and after a day in the shade, it didn't stink at all, so I skun it. Could have gotten lucky though.[Linked Image]
