I don't know if this has been mentioned or is even interesting, but I thought I'd share since people were complaining about finding skunks etc.
I stopped by this clearing to skin some foxes I shot and became inundated with wildlife prancing around for me to shoot them. Aside from two or three fox kills, I completed all of Master Hunter Rank 6 (5 skunks/foxes/raccoons I believe)here as well as killing over the required amount of Grizzly Bears for the Bearly Legal achievement.
So if there isn't a spot to get both of these quickly and easily, there is now. Just make sure to stop by at night/early morning and watch your back. Every time I killed a bear or boar, a new one popped up shortly after.

Sorry for the bad quality cellphone pics.

Thanks for the tip. I'll check it out next time I'm hunting. --- "I've got you beat. I had to put my son's swing set/jungle-gym together today. I pulled this off without killing anyone." - dirkdiggler
No problem, I just hope it wasn't a glitch or anything. Seemed pretty solid as far as I could tell.

I went to the area you marked on the map at night, and it was absolutely crawling with raccoons. Got five of them in no time at all. Didn't see anything else other than bobcats, though. I set up camp to save, and then it was daytime. The same spot during the day was like bear city. I literally killed six of them in under a minute. Saw a couple of boars, too. --- http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v354/ryziun/franklin_quarry.gif

I don't recall if bobcats come out during the day or not, but like I said, I went to the area marked by the X on TC's pic at night and saw bunches of them there. --- http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v354/ryziun/franklin_quarry.gif
