Third time is not a charm.

Little brother, ultimate hunter gave me some advice after I killed the last one, double lung them. Went out to the chicken coop tonight and ran into one. A minute latter I put a 22 through it's lungs. The stink tells me something went horribly wrong. \:\)

Is there a trick to it or should I just always expect the same outcome?

I don't have a scientific answer... but its a skunk. I think that's pretty much what they do.

I may owe little brother an apology. When I went out a few hours later expecting to be knocked over (like before) no stink. He said that's how trappers do it.

Don't you hate when little brothers show us up?

Yep, but in this case I can live with it.

It's hard to double lung them with some 3 1/2" 12 gauge hevi shot mag blends. \:D It was rotten but he shouldn't have walked up on me like that for the 2nd time.

Yeah, there's a difference between a skunk stinking, and a skunk spraying! Last one I live trapped got one in the head and he commenced reflexive squirting. Wasn't pretty.

I've shot a few with bow and never really sprayed, just always walk off abit then die, I've also caught some in live traps.. kinda cruel but put them in the sun they die pretty quickly.
