I was just sitting in my Room commenting on NJ Gunners, Camoflauge Post and I started to smell a Skunk. So I went out-side with a Flashlight and was looking around for it. Didnt see it but Smelled it Strong, my Questions are

# 1. How far can a Skunk be away from you, but you can still smell it?

# 2. What is Good Skunk Bait? I would love to grab my "Pellet Gun" and put one through his head.

Yup, Tuna or fish smell. We had one caught in a commercial crab pot in the 80s because my neighbor didn't clean out the bait holder well enough. Next morning we had a job on our hands in getting the skunk out without being sprayed.

Let your dog off the leash at night. It worked for me. (twice with the same dog)
I have a Nice Size, Border Collie, he could probably kill it, but he would probably get Sprayed by the Skunk before he got to do anything though.

My thought too. Unless you see it and it's acting strange, like rabies or distemper, why not leave it alone?

Maybe it's just me but I don't feel the need to kill everything because it's there. [confusedagain]

If the wind is right you could smell a skunk that sprayed from a loooong way off.
