Sardines.....

.... well, the whittling continues apace around here... and so far it is appearing that it'll likely be some kind of penguinesque statuette that emerges..... imagine that, eh?........

....... but in other news, I cannot describe just how crestfallen I am to report that I haven't seen hide nor hair of my skunk visitor since de-mothballing the .22 magnum, sighting in the scope at 50 meters, and procuring a tin of sardines at the local Save-a-Lot yesterday afternoon....

..... you know, I've never killed a skunk before..... and I've never really held a grudge against any skunk in particular.... I've smelled lots of them, sure, but I've never been sprayed...... never had a doggie slink home bearing the evil funk of having tangled with one the night before..... hell, I've never even been a party to a vehicular homicide of a wayward skunk..... and yet...... and yet...... something deep inside me is more than just a little bit disappointed at the disappearance of that cat-food stealing skunk.....

.... perhaps it was the challenge of seeing if I could cap him without him finding a chance to spray...... then again, maybe my bloodlust has just gone too long without being slaked by the sacrificial life force of a cute, forest dwelling critter..... good lord, God knows I haven't drawn a deadly bead on anything larger than a squirrel in over 10 months.... something's gotta give, rubberneckers........

..... who ever knew that Pepe LePew could cause such a skew in my perspective of view......

.... mercy, that was bad......

Bullshit So Far

Well, my brother says that if you cap a skunk, the last thing he'll do is spray (voice of experience).

His method is to live trap them, then put the trap in a black plastic trash bag & leave them in the sun.

Death by natural causes. No spray.

Your being too easy on the smelly little rodent. Mothball the .22 and pull out the 12 gague with buck shot. If you are going to quench a thirst, do it right. Set the sardines out about 20 yards and sit on the porch. My dad just peppered a black bear with bird shot and the dumb SOB came back for a second. He was Army though.... I told him to pull out the .45-70. I haven't had a cofirmed kill on anything since '92, but I was young and dumb back then... I still vote for the 12 gague.

Well hell, don't kill the damn thing. Trap it and ship it to California to Nancy Pelosi she can use it to touch up her perfume.

LOL - well make sure you don't miss if you get the chance to shoot at it. You can't even give him the chance to turn around!!!

Brother Blade...Just my 2 cents, I have experience...if you're gonna shoot it, shoot it at the longest range possible. The loooongest range possible.

Trust me on this, and leave it for the buzzards if they'll have it.
