I found a skunk under my coop tonight. It was noseing around and causing the girls to cluck loudly. I went to investigate and saw it illuminated by the almost full moon. I went and got my .22 cal pellet gun and turned on the illuminated feature of my scope. The skunk was leaving the scene by that time but was still a siloette in the scope. Due to bright moon light I was able to get a good sight . One shot to the head and it was skunk history. Luckily, the breeze was moving away from the house. I was going to skin it but in my old age, my stomach is weak. I just put it in a garbage bag and will dispose of it come garbage day. I tan hides normally but I just could'nt take the smell.
