It's funny a lot of people think it's just easy to deal with skunks and it is until you let that genie out of the bottle then work and family often get in the way. LOL It's funny people walk into one of my buildings and their eyes open wide and I can often not even smell it. It's not for everyone that's for sure but I don't mind it as I get excited when I catch a big skunk when others would be cursing up a storm but not me.


I have it now where I don't even need to set my own cages often people will set theirs and call be when they have a Pepe even other trappers that won't mess with skunks even call to give away free skunks if I go take care of them for them.

Two seasons ago, (about a year and a half now), I had about 5-6 skunks worth of stink juice sitting in a jar on a shelf in my garage. I reached for it to add some more and knocked it over, and of course the jar shattered, sending stink juice all over the garage floor, myself, and my wife, who happened to be checking in on me. Needless to say, she was less than pleased. The garage still hasn't recovered, she says. I cant tell anymore. I learned my lesson though, now the jar never leaves the floor.

Okay thanks. I never done it myself. I would like to someday.

I pulled this out of the archives: "This is a photo of a set of skunk pods prior to draining. Once drained the pods can be removed and saved also. Or the drained pods can be cut out after skinning. I prefer to drain or extract the filled pods prior to skinning to avoid incidental discharge and wasteing some essence."
