Snared skunk this morning in my set. Dispatched through lungs but still sprayed, but not me. Truck now has a unique odor and getting alot of looks when stopped in traffic. Got the critter home and washed w/ peroxide, baking soda and dish soap really did the job.

I am about 7 for 8 with skunks. 7 times they sprayed once it did not! Need someone smarter than me to figure out how to kill them without getting sprayed! [rofl]

According to Dr Grant Woods of Growing Deer.com Shoot trapped skunks through the lungs with a 22 soft round pt. If you use a hollow point they will spray every time.

cb shorts do as good a job as any. just do not hit the shoulder or there will be a spray. the key is letting the skunk calm down before you shoot let it smell the barrel and ease up. also I found that putting the end of the barrel touching the side works a little better. but even then they all seem to dribble a little when the die. not a spray just a leak out.

I heard that if you get down at eye level with them. Grab the tail, lift it straight up so the feet leave the ground and stare at the ~vent~ they will not spray...the trick is to yell loudly while shakeing the tail violently
