    Well I've never heard of anyone setting out to hunt possums. I would find a coonhunter and have them help you find a dog that will run possum and coon. Check out www.huntsmart.com and get a good light and a .22 lr will work.

                    Bomber it wouldn't be considered a good coon dog, I've coon hunted a long time and if a dog runs anything that isn't a coon its considered trash and no one really wants a dog that runs trash.

                      Out a live trap in your back yard baited with peanut butter.

                        Peanut butter won't draw a skunk (like sardines) but coons and possums love the stuff.

                              Well....basically...a gun. If you want it to be easier just set out something in a trap or bait them.
