Well, I bit the bullet and skinned out not one but 3 skunks on Sat. First one went off without a hitch. No problem. They actually skin quite easily. On the second skunk........I always pull the tail bone out before I hang the critter up. Well, as I was pulling the tail bone I inadvertantly applied some pressure, too much pressure, to the vent area, and.....PHEWEEEEEE!!!!!
.......just glad I was wearing skinning gloves! The odor still went right through the gloves and onto my hands.
Needless to say I finished that skunk and then skinned the 3rd using extreme caution as I pulled the tail bone....LOL.......All windows and the door on my fur shed have been wide open since.
