I Had a Skunk Encounter

    I've Had a Bunch of Them

    I have been surrounded by them once on a construction site. Had to be 30 to 40 of them babies and all. I had been sent there on a call for suspicious activity on one of the houses under construction. I had gotten out of my patrol car and walked into the site to be utterly...

    Heavily skunked before the winter comes!

    I decided that with the snow coming in and everything freezing over, I had to have just one last chase before I'm locked out for most of the winter due to snow and hibernation patterns, etc. (and yes I realize skunks are not true hibernators, but they do have long-term...

    This is my final story.

    On November 6th, 2013, I had just moved to the outskirts of Flint MI, into an older house, less than a month ago. Skunkry and Cologne were sleeping in their room. (Yes they had a room to themselves, perfectly skunk friendly, no outlets or anything.) When my house caught fire...

    A Warm Summer Night's Skunking

    I left the house at about 1:30 a.m. after fully suiting up for a skunk-seeking, including (thankfully) some vinyl gloves to wear under the usual protective gloves, which are fingerless. This ensures I don't have skunked hands and end up touching everything from my car keys and...

    Another Fun Night At The Lake.

    Hello my fellow skunk-sniffing readers,I got dressed in my previously-sprayed clothing last night with the full intent of going to my favorite skunk-inhabited lakeside park for a perfuming. Arriving shortly after dusk, I wandered for about an hour, luck seeming to be with me on...

    I've been sprayed a few times in my life, most of which weren't entirely accidental... It all started in the 3rd grade. My friend and I were out on the playground when she spotted a skunk sniffing around a tree. She became very excited, saying she wanted to try and get sprayed by...

    Penelope, Sweet Penelope.

    I got to the lake a little late since I worked until about 9:40 and had to head home. Still, 11 p.m. or so isn't too bad a time to arrive for skunk-chasing, all things considered. I saw a lot of feral cats gathered near the park patrol station, since some guy in an SUV was...

    I too have had a few skunk encounters.

    It started walking to school in 4th grade with my best friend Mia. We heard a sound coming from the bushes and could see a skunk in the bushes. Then Mia tells me she had always wanted to get skunked and I said "Ok, let's do it"! We approached the skunk and it let loose on us...

    Having a very fragrant Skunktember!

    It's been a very long time, 2 months exactly it seems, since I was last perfumed, so to celebrate Skunktember I decided that despite the fact I have to go in to work tomorrow night I just HAD to get at least a misting, and knew full well that a misting is never enough. Once you...

    Skunkry And Cologne

    Well, I went to get my pet skunks today. Both male, hooded, and not deskunked, but fixed. They're housebroken, and trained to obay two commands other than the basic sit and stay, by the breeder. The commands are some weird language, and tell them either to spray the user or who...

    A Pre-Spring Chase, successful spritzing.

    At about 7 p.m. I headed up to the lake, the time being perfect for a chase given that the temperatures have risen to acceptable levels, the snow seems to be melted here and it's now skunk mating season, so I know they'll be extra pungent! Right off the bat I found a skunk, but...

    A Very Fragrant Night Indeed!

    The last two times I went to my usual skunk habitats by the lake, I was saddened to find myself walking around for 2-3+ hours never to find any sign of skunks. I was nearly completely resigned to just finding another location. I scouted another lake tonight to also come up short...

    Celebrating Skunktember This Year

    I went to the park last night looking around for skunks since I'd just lost my job and was really stressed out and depressed, so I needed the pick-me-up. And boy did I get one.Most of the skunks I found are usually really smart about avoiding me, and when I first parked I decided...

    Refreshed by the little perfumers.

    I'd already begun to seriously miss max-strength, fresh-sprayed skunk enough that when the opportunity came to get my other pillowcase scented, I flipped the coin for a lake trip. Surprisingly, I won the toss by 1 out of 3 in the third round. I still hesitated to go get sprayed...

    So, I blame it on the night.This was a few years back, I was dating my ex at the time and we were walking down towards the park at night. There is no sidewalk right in front of the actual park so you are forced to walk in the grass. Well, I was coming up on this tree and I...

    Blinded By Skunk Spray As Nature Intended!

    It's not often when I'm chasing skunks that I get sprayed directly in the eyes. I used to wear goggles just in case, but I lost my previous pair in the move (with the rest of my skunk-chasing gear, which I've since replaced except for the flashlight) and the diving goggles I got...

    Multiple Skunkings, Enjoyed Each One!

    Well first off, a bit of a confession. I, like some of the other users posting stories in this group, *really* enjoy the scent of skunk. It's rich and pungent, very musky, and so what if it's also sulfurous? There's far worse stinks out there (rotting flesh, diesel fuel from a...

    Careless skunkseeking leads to bites.

    This time I was very reckless and I paid dearly for it. Since I won the coin toss I usually take to determine my fortune for the night if I go skunk-chasing, I decided to go for it, since the weather has been improving considerably as long as you leave early enough at night and...
