I used to run a pretty long line of fox traps back in the 70's. I caught 6 skunks in one day, a double on skunks that day. I had an old single shot .22 rifle and would put a .22 short into the lungs. I was always in a hurry, all week trapping in the dark before work, and left them sit a day. Most did not spray, they did if you hit the front leg. I also trapped two skunks in a 220 conibear set in a coon trail once. I looked into the marsh grass and thought what a huge skunk I had, but the one in front was caught across the hips and still alive when I picked up the trap and saw it was two skunks. I smelled kind of ripe most of November back then.
