Default Withdrawal

Snaring was a blast this year and I had my best year ever, however going thru withdrawal and easing out of the snare mode isnt easy ...So I set up a bunch of snares for coons to try and help out the pheasants , skunks are getting in on the game as well . 8 coons and 3 skunks , as well as a few porkys that cant be left out ...caught these 2 on the same trail 20 ft apart today .

Are the 'coons worth anything in the fur ? There's a fella on here making skunk mittens also. For a large financial consideration I'll skin 'em for you

Nice way to wind down the season. Well done!

Do the skunks spray when caught in a snare? Usually just hammer them with a 160
