So this past saturday i took my kid (5 yo) down to the creek to shoot his bb gun. we had seen a few squirrels and he had his squirrel call so we sat down beside a big tree and he was trying to call them. he started calling and i told him to listen close because we would hear them in the trees with they come out. so anyway, were sitting there for a few minutes and hes calling and i hear something coming through the weeds on the other side of this big tree. i leaned back and tried to see what it was, thinking it was either a squirrel or possibly a coyote, i couldnt see anything around to the right side so i started to lean to the left and check it out. by this time i can tell whatever it is, its very very close and just on the other side of the tree. so i start lookin to the left side and SOB! Theres a fukkin skunk coming around about 6 feet from us, NO BS! I told my kid to run but by that time the skunk was raising its tail and BAM BAM, in about a nanosecond i pumped 2 rounds from my Rem 870 12 ga. into its face and pretty much blew it to smithereens from 6 feet away. then me and my kid both looked at each other like "holyshitballz" that was crazy. we couldnt believe that we almost got sprayed at point blank range by a skunk. then a few seconds later the smell began to spread and we had to make a run about 50 yards out into the open cornfield away from the creek, and boyhowdie did it stink. anyway, it was another good time of hunting with my kid, good times, good times. :09: oh yea, and that was the first thing i killed with my Remington 870 12 ga. i just got it about 2 weeks ago and have been pretty antsy to test it out on something. i woulda got some pics of the destruction, but i didnt really want to go to work the next day smelling like pepe le pew. ty 12 ga pump!
