Reply To: 1st Wildcat casualty
A skunk is know to be quite a scrappy animal and in my situation, the skunk had dug a hole under the concrete and the last thing I wanted was a dead stinky skunk 6 or 8 feet under the concrete. I know that a vital chest shot kills animals but not always instant. A head shot 99.9 percent of the time is instantaneous. I have a .1 percent story I will leave for some other time. I needed to drop the skunk in his tracks, so a head shot was my best option.
