Skunk Shedding-When-What time in the spring do skunks begin to shed? I have a male and female and would like to kill the male after the breeding season so that I can market his fur.
Skunks do their mating between the middle of February and the middle of March. Unless you are certain that the confinement has been productive of results it is safest to leave the male with the female until the middle of March, and it is best if they are not together for a few weeks before the breeding season. As they shed in March and are usually in bad condition by the middle of the month, it is not likely that your plan will be practicable.
