Yesterday while on the way down to feed the ducks acertain scent caught my attention. Could the skunk smell be a sign of spring? I didn't get close enough to ask him/her/it, and had enough trouble convincing the dogs to let it alone. It sure stunk like a skunk but, I hope it's a sure sign.Lol :)

Hmmm...sure doesn't sound like the Disney scene of the little skunks in the flowers in Bambi, lol. What was the little fellers name? Oh yeah, Bambi mistakenly named him Flower, lol.

yep skunks are more active in spring. in the 30s they had a bounty and my dad & uncles used to almost raise them. they'd see one and hold back, follow it to its den and watch for when it had babies, then dig the litter up and collect money on all of them. during the drought they denned up in cracks in the ground. now i've had some lousy jobs but can you imagine collecting skunks in gunny sacks?
