My lab just got sprayed about 15minuted ago. :evil: Dogs went out and as I was standing there, they started sniffing around a bush along the deck I heard some russling like Casey wasn't alone bam, the smell hit me. My wife is at wallymart getting peroxide and douch for the cleaning concoction. I need this skunk to die. I have access to a 220conibear. Would that be the weapon of choice? I think I can also get a live trap so I don't get the neighbors damn mostly feral outside cats. Then of course I would need to kill said skunk.

Anyway, what the perferred method of setting up a 220? Should I place it along my deck, perpendicular to the base? There really isn't any place to to live or hide back under there, as I have a walk out basement and the deck is elevated and skirted with lattice. I'll post a pic of the area tomorrow if that would help.

I don't know about how to set that trap, but good luck getting that stink off your lab. I don't know what it is, but atleast once a month one of my female labs comes home stinking of skunk. The last time I found her on the sofa on the deck tearing the skunk to pieces. It took forever to get the smell out of those cushions.

We used this recipe on our other dog when he got sprayed last fall. Used it again last night. It works well.
What you need
Next go to a drug store and get the following, if needed:

1 quart (or liter) of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide, H2O2.
Use fresh (unopened) hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Hydrogen peroxide eventually turns into water (H2O).
1/4 cup (50 ml.) of Baking Soda
1 teaspoon (5 ml.) of Liquid Soap
1 pair of plastic or latex gloves

To Use
Bathe the dog outside or, if it's too dark or cold, in the bathroom with the door closed and window opened.
Combine the ingredients in an open container (do not store in a sealed bottle--it will explode).
Using gloves, wash your dog with lukewarm water and the mixture while the mixture is bubbling. Work the mixture well into the fur.
Be sure to concentrate on the area that was sprayed.
Keep mixture away from your dog's face and eyes (it's a harsh solution). (If your dog has been sprayed in the face, try Tricotine Liquid Douche Concentrate or any over-the-counter douche.)
Let the mixture stand for 10 minutes or so before rinsing off.
Rinse the dog with lukewarm tap water. Don't wash the mixture into your dog's eyes (use a washcloth to cover the eyes if you're rinsing the head).
After bathing, check your dog's eyes. If they are red and watering, your dog may have taken a direct hit in the face. Skunk spray won't blind the dog, but it's very painful. Contact a vet.

I've used tomato juice to get rid of the smell on my dogs. Worked very well too.

As far as varmint removal, you can trap it, but hell a .22 is just fine for the job, just read my sig line though. A wounded skunk is quite nasty. Dont ask .... :shock:

Go Skunk Sniping Man!!!! :grin:

I had a Golden Retriever that got hit by a Skunk twice in one setting. He initially got sprayed once then ran back to me then went back to attack it and got it again. Both times in his face and chest area. Holy shit did he stink.

I tried everything I could think of, Tomato juice, spaghetti sauce, alcohol and a rag, gasoline on a rag diesel fuel on a rag, I even went to the pet shop and got this stuff called SKUNK RID and other special stuff and nothing worked. I was real mad that the Tomato sauce didn't work because EVERYONE says that works, I found that to be PURE 100% bullshit. So after smelling him for the night (he was in the garage) i took him to my lake and let him swim for a couple of hours and that was the only thing that worked. I think Myth Buster did a special on Skunks and remedies.

Many years ago my buddy had a German Shepherd tied to a tree up north her in Mich.. And one day everyone went to the store for whatever, then when they came back they noticed the dog was acting out in a very bad way and to their horror they noticed the dog had been repeatedly sprayed by a skunk and the dog was staring to go in to respiratory arrest and before they could do anything for him he died. They later concluded that the dog died of severe bronchial inflammation contributed by the skunk. The dog was about 4yrs old and about 125lbs. Skunks can be deadly in was you would never think.

So, later on that year we shot and killed all skunks and Porky's in the area. Porky's where included because they would eat the wooden shingles of his roof and also the wood side on the house.

Here's the pic of the back of my house, Casey even posed for the pic. I believe the skunk travel or prowls around the bottom of the deck area because Casey got sprayed under the big bush one right.

My sergeant told me today that a skunk will evacuate it's smell about 30 seconds after death. Can anyone confirm this? It would be bad to kill it and have it stink everyything up. It's not like I can double bag it and throw it away like last weeks groundhog.

What are my skunk deterrent options?

I have shot maybe 40 -50 and you got a 50 /50 chance.

I still say you use the connibear.

live trap it then use wires to drag it into a cold, watery grave....that will freeze its spray glands.

or use dragon's breath from a distance... set that mofo ablaze!

I've used this several times and it works great.
