My moms friend has a skunk problem under her house. She only has a pellet gun and I'm pretty sure it's just laughing at her by now. What's a good way to keep skunks away without trapping/killing it. If nothing works ill do a stake out smile

A mean asss dog... if she dosnt want to kill it a live trap is the only way... i get them bad and cant always choot them since they are always under the house...so catch them in a live trap with a rope tied to it so when i catch them i can drag them down to tha creek and just toss them in ha....i aint bout to try and handle them

I haven't laughed out loud like that since deer camp jokes in december


Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back everything is different.

Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

I got some Aguila Super Colbri 20 gr powderless that I will mail you a few rounds for free if you PM my your address. I hate this ammo issue we hunters are having and I will help you out for nothing.

The little 22 CB caps work great for in town shooting. Neighbors never hear anything and the skunk goes to wherever skunks go when they die.
