Nonfeeding Western

Yeah I know I know, but I am usually good at getting my snakes to get back on feed. I have tried a few things such as raising the temp to get it going and tried scenting with a five lined skink I have in my freezer. It's just a baby and I don't know the sex. It fed for me 2 times after I got it with a little scenting aid with the skink. Then about 3 weeks ago I went to feed it again and no responce other than some mad hissing and general pissyness that I was in there. It seems more scared of the pink than anything. I was just wondering if anyone in here knew of any "sure to get them feeding" recipe. This is my first Hognose and I hear they can be picky. I am not worried I just want to get it under control before it gets too late. Like I said it has been about 3 weeks with not eating and it hasn't shed or anything so.... Anyway any tips etc would be appreciated. I figured I had a good feeder since it fed the first couple of times for me. AHHH well!
