Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Thumbs up Caught a dang skunk

A skunk has been walking up to our front door almost nightly.

I put a trap out with donuts in it (so as not to attract cats) on our property as far from the house as I could get. I caught him. The nosy neighbor saw it. Bad concealment on my part? Nope. The trap was in scrub oak and not visible from the neighbor's property. He is just nosy and patrols...

It is not legal to shoot in the area, and local laws require traps to be checked and empties every couple of days. So I had to call a skunk removal expert to come get the skunk. I am inside and I can smell that the guy just got sprayed.

He earns his money.

You should have just ran up real fast and grab the trap and throw it in the back seat of your car. They will quiet down when you are driving.

You could have saved a few bucks.

The Havahart traps keeps the tails down, tie a line to the trap and put the entire thing in a barrel of water or in the river. Skunk drowns, then let it out.

For real the best way is to slowly walk up holding an old blanket between you and the skunk in the cage then throw the blanket over the cage.

Then you can take it to wherever you are going to release it - preferably in the back of a truck. Then you can release the trap with the blanket still over the cage and walk away. After the skunk walks away retrieve your cage. The blanket won't be of much use anymore.

I did that for my sister in law many years ago.

The neighbor across the road caught a skunk in a cage. He shot it with a .22.

It was early in the morning. I heard a gun shot and then a couple of minutes later the powerful scent of skunk drifted in the windows. The neighbors house smelled like skunk for several weeks.

How about in the front seat of a convertible Porsche with the roof down in a parking lot?

It is unlawful to shoot here.

I have been skunked before and it was worth $125 to not get skunked again.

Best way to catch a skunk or git rid of one is to call a PETA liberal animal lover to relocate it to a "safe zone"
