Polecat refers to a carnivorous mammal of the weasel family found in wooded areas of North Eurasia and North Africa, but is also a colloquial term used to refer to the American skunk. You can find this polecat just outside Arkansas' first State Park, which is a great place to visit.

From Morrilton, take Hwy 9 south 9 miles to Oppelo, then turn west on Hwy 154 and go 12 miles to the park. Continue on through the park to just past the western entrance. From Centerville, take Hwy 154 east 13 miles to a pullout on the left just before the entrance sign.

Walk north to the left side of a large rock where a high chain fence meets a lower one. Starting with that pole, walk left (west) 6 poles to where the fence starts sloping downhill. Look under the rock lip next to the fence about 2 feet left (west) of that pole. Camo microbox is under some stones. Please rehide well.
