    Has anyone been catching any? I caught 2 of them last season in my DP traps. And does anyone know if they are worth anything?

    Taxidermy mostly from what I understand...they are small for most fur usages to begin with but as novelty they should be valuable

    They were spotted skunks. If you shaved all the hair off them they proubly wernt much bigger than a fox squirrel.

    Locally called civet cat. Pelts might bring $6-$8. Saw one sell in the round at the fur sale in Russelleville a couple years ago for $51.00! :up:

    if you are catching any you should contact blake sasse with game and fish... he has been asking about them statewide if anyone had caught any or been seeing any.
