If ya ever see a skunk in the coop... NEVER shoot it while its inside the coop. It smells horrible, gets all over your poultry, and if ya miss once cuz the flashlight ya duct-taped to your gun keeps goin on and off every time ya shoulder it, you'll blow a whole right thru the coop. Make sure ya look behind ya once or twice, there was a huge skunk behind me and I scared it when I shot the other one... Need I say more? Make sure, if ya do shoot it while inside the coop, ya kill it before it gets to its crawl hole, or its hell to try to get it outta there. And last but not least, make sure when ya go out there in the middle of the night, especially if ya got guests, to get fully dressed before runnin out there. I woke up and herd a bunch of strange noises in the coop so I jumped outta bed, grabbed my gun and ran. Well, when I got back, my Nana (who was stayin over for a while) was standin at the back door and there I was, buck naked in front of God and everybody. Lord, not a good night. Well, on a good note, my chickens are all ok, they smell BAD, but they aint dead. By the way, anyone know anyway to get rid of skunk smell? I aint found out yet, and I really stink LOL!
