Well, today was the first day I could sneak out for a dove shoot with my old man and chocolate lab. Usual have decent amount of birds at this particular farm. Today was different. 30 minutes into the hunt I saw a skunk emerge from the ditch. I yelled oh crap! Old man thought birds were coming in. I peppered the skunk three times with 12 gauge 1 oz 8 shot. Nothing. My lab decided to dispatch it... sprayed. That really ticked the dog off. So he bit the skunk and shook it near death. Two more sprays from the skunk and daddy finished it off with two more shells. Talk about the most horrific putrid rancid smell. Wouldn't wish that smell on my wrote enemy. Anybody else have a dog/skunk experience?
