    Becoming A Skunk Addict.

    I got the urge halfway through the night to go back to the lake. I know it's only been a few days and I was still quite skunky, but the itch remained. As usual, I decided if I'm going to shut my nagging up, I'd better just flip a coin, so that way I can just blame chance if I end...

    Here Kitty Kitty

    THis morning I was heading off the front porch to wait for hubby in the truck. It was still dark out. I see a critter waddling toward me. Hmm, which of my cats is that coming to me? I look over to the cat bowl where all three of our cats are accounted for and contentedly eating...

    This time I was very reckless

    and I paid dearly for it. Since I won the coin toss I usually take to determine my fortune for the night if I go skunk-chasing, I decided to go for it, since the weather has been improving considerably as long as you leave early enough at night and maybe wear a windbreaker, you...

    A Warm Summer Night's Skunking

    I left the house at about 1:30 a.m. after fully suiting up for a skunk-seeking, including (thankfully) some vinyl gloves to wear under the usual protective gloves, which are fingerless. This ensures I don't have skunked hands and end up touching everything from my car keys and...

    At about 7 p.m. I headed up to the lake,

    the time being perfect for a chase given that the temperatures have risen to acceptable levels, the snow seems to be melted here and it's now skunk mating season, so I know they'll be extra pungent! Right off the bat I found a skunk, but it was surprisingly close to a known...

    Positively Drenched Tonight!

    Yet another fun little trip to the lake tonight, this time I came prepared with a head-mounted HD video camera. Unfortunately, those do require a LOT of light and a lot of steadiness. Anyway, onto the story. I got suited up in my sprayed clothing and headed down to the lake at...

    Reeking Quite Sweetly This Time!

    After my skunking Saturday night, I couldn't help but notice I didn't seem very well sprayed on my skin. I would be very pungent indeed when wearing my sprayed clothing, but not all that strong otherwise (more of a "burnt tire" smell, it seemed). I suspected this meant I didn't...

    Good Stinks Come To Those Who Wait!

    When I got to the lake tonight I found a skunk right away, near the little feral cat feeding station as usual (they seem to be relying on it lately). He didn't notice me, but another skunk near him did and ran into the nearest pipe before I could do much of anything. The first...

    A Very Fragrant Night Indeed!

    The last two times I went to my usual skunk habitats by the lake, I was saddened to find myself walking around for 2-3+ hours never to find any sign of skunks. I was nearly completely resigned to just finding another location. I scouted another lake tonight to also come up short...

    Blinded By Skunk Spray As Nature Intended!

    It's not often when I'm chasing skunks that I get sprayed directly in the eyes. I used to wear goggles just in case, but I lost my previous pair in the move (with the rest of my skunk-chasing gear, which I've since replaced except for the flashlight) and the diving goggles I got...

    So, I blame it on the night.This was a few years back, I was dating my ex at the time and we were walking down towards the park at night. There is no sidewalk right in front of the actual park so you are forced to walk in the grass. Well, I was coming up on this tree and I...
