I think that was the last time i went spotlighting rabbits. I had to ride home in the back of the truck.

In the back yard, if i remember correctly, then seeeeeeeeeeveral regular showers and baths. I had to junk my jacket, and the shotgun had spots bleached out on the buttstock.

The tomato juice is good for the bloody Mary or three you'll need & everyone who lives w you as well. Our old hound took three baths w all manner of cure- all but it had to almost wear out. She didn't get back into the house for about a week.

The best thing is green tomatos. They can be mashed up and add some soap this works. The same thing can be done with ripe tomatos.

I know it's off topic but I have a skunk story of my own. I used to live out in the sticks and my cousin lived across the section from me. He was over one warm summer night and we were sitting out on the back steps drinking more than our share of Budweiser and feeling pretty good. Right down beside the steps we had a bunch of baby kittens, they weren't very old. Out of the darkness this skunk runs right up to the steps and grabs one of them by the head. Of course we just about s*** out pants, and the skunk takes off with the kitten. So I, in my slightly tilted wisdom, ran in the house and grabbed my .357 and ran out the door and after the skunk, trying to save the kitten. It was close to total darkness and I started winging off shots at the skunk. It never even wavered, didn't drop the kitten or even speed up to get away, which it did of course. Next morning I found a bullet hole through the bed of my work pickup. Skunk 1, Jim 0.... LOL

Yeah right... moral of the story, large amounts of beer + .357 + shooting in the dark at a fearless skunk = bad idea...

First time I've heard of one poaching a kitten right by a house. Did he come back for seconds or maybe kitten isn't - "Good Eats..."

PS: I've had better luck w 22 shorts to keep the woodland critters in check. I use a pump rifle - real quiet but a pistol will work as well.
