When David Phipps went deer hunting, he never thought he would meet this.
A big skunk became all too friendly during this deer hunting trip.
Check out this big skunk visiting a Virginia deer hunter way too close for comfort:
When this deer hunter went hunting in Clifton, Virginia, he thought his homemade ground blind looked like the perfect spot. Well, it was—for a very large marauding skunk.
This incredible footage was caught by David Phipps of a skunk coming along and dropping into his hunting blind. The skunk then decided to smell, chew and ultimately try to climb under this hunter’s boots. Its cat-like playfulness would just be another hunter’s tale if not for this wonderful video. This skunk ambled off afterwards without spraying.
Special thanks to David Phipps for sharing this remarkable encounter with this polecat. He notes that he used no scent lures at all on this hunt. We now certainly will be keeping our eyes open a little wider while waiting for our game.
