What do you mean...Skunk stink out of your clothes? stink out of the actual fur? or cutting out the musk glands to sell the fluid?

Take a sharp razor and gently cut around the anus of the skunk. The glands are on either side. Once the anus is cut free from the hide, you can pull it out a little, and cut some intestine out with it. Then use a clean syringe to extract the essense. If the skunk has already sprayed and you're just lookign to get the stink off of him prior to skinning, throw him in a cold creek for a couple of days.

Use this formula to get rid of skunk smells. Just mix enough to use, you can't save it. One quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup baking soda and one teaspoon liquid soap. You can even wash your skunks with this before you skin them if you want to.

get a dull butter knife, harshly jab the glands, this will cause the scent to bust out and allow good coverage :D

do as said above, i just use the syringe and remove directly, store in a glass bottle
