Imagine the ground hog being trapped in for a long winter sleep with a dead skunk. That ground hog will want a whole lotta revenge on you!shooter223 said:to remove the skunk i stould back and shot it in the lungs to kill it because i dont skin skunks and a head shot would makes them more because thats the nerves and then there muscles contract and the skunk sprays but they still do spray before you shoot them hence my question. then i left it there till night and removed it by undoing the trap and carrying the skunk with a shovel so i wouldnt get the smell all over me and the ground around it then i found a ground hog hole threw the skunk down the hole and covered it up with dirt. i dont know if this is the proper way or not this is my first year trapping and my first skunk i caught and hopefully my last.
Especially as the weather gets colder, skunky smelling lures work well. If you didn't know this then write it down! Skunk essence is a great attractor for just about any furbearer you are going after. I'd go make a set either right where you caught the skunk (if you're gonna use the stinky trap), or I'd go make a set about 15 feet away from where you caught it. Good luck to ya!shooter223 said:o wow i didnt know an animal would be attracted to a skunk. this is only my first year trapping and this website is teaching me a lot thanks!
