Sitting out here having not seen or heard anything so I'm easing through the woods and see a coyote. Not close enough to shoot so I squeak at him with my mouth call but no luck. I ease on up to the wood's edge and sit down. I open up tndeer to see if anything is happening when I hear something just to my right. Now I'm sitting with a bunch of scrub brush around but that's when i see him literally 10' away. Him is a skunk I had to scare off with a rock just the other week in the same area about 60 yards away. He was coming straight toward my foot so I jumped up and ran about 10-15 yards and turned back. He was standing their with his tail up ready for battle. Turns out he was not match for Hevi Shot Mag Blends. I didn't want to waste a $5 shell on a skunk but didn't want to be sprayed either. I dang near had a heart attack

lol

i had a staredown with this poor little soaked fellow one morning.

the last thing they want to do is spray. just make no sudden moves and he will go on his way. skunks get a free pass and a thank you from me for digging up all them yellowjacket nests.

i dont shoot them HOWEVER just an FYI but skunks has as much if not more of an impact on turkey eggs then any other animals minus coons. Even more then a Yote which always seems to get the blame for disappearing animals.

I didn't give it a second thought when this OL' Boy got to close for comfort.

REN is correct on the turkey eggs. That was in the back of my mind too and why he almost got shot the other week. I wanted to get a picture of him but the smell was just too bad. I grabbed my seat and got the heck out of there.

Anything that destroys turkey eggs must be destroyed.
