Must make clean head shot. Quick kill and they wont spray. Pick up by ear and throw in river and clean up with your handwashing station.

I had a bear getting in my trash at home years ago. I had some pepper spray and figured I 'd chase him away next time he got into my trash. One night I hear the bear and grab the pepper spray and run outside. I start discharging the spray with the bear standing 15 feet away. The bear turns and runs away, determined to chase the bear away I start running after the bear pointing the pepper spray at the fleeting bear. Doing this I run directly into the cloud of pepper spray I am releasing, quite effectively pepper spraying myself. I'm sure I gave the bear a good indication of what the pepper spray would do if he came back as he sat in the woods laughing at home stupid human macing himself. Bear 1 Me 0. careful with the skunks.

Hey gang, not that I don't think skunks in camp is a super important topic... but I hope all 812 of you have also popped on over to the AW thread about final comments on the Colorado Water Plan and have sent in your letter in some form or another. Not gonna matter if there's skunks in your camp if all the water's trapped behind a dam anyway.

I would never think of harming wildlife, but this skunk in question crawled into a dry bag and dropped a duce. That kind of made it personal.

I have Coon hounds that I take on overnights. They have run off everything from skunks to brown bears. Other than wolves a dog or two should keep the critters away. My girls are a chop mouth and a ball mouth, when they sing critters get gone.

Would take care of the annoying campers in the next site over.
