Skunk Wash

8 posts in this topic

I know people have posted the recipe before and here is what I found with a search. Can someone confirm this information and if I recall correctly, you do not mix until you are going to use them.

1 Quart (approx 1 litre) of 3% hydrogen peroxide.

1/4 cup (approx 45ml) baking soda.

1 teaspoon (approx 5ml) liquid soap.

After having my dog point a skunk on day 1 of a 4 day hunting trip. I will be sure to carry this stuff.

Keep in mind that the 3% hydrogen peroxide will freeze during late season hunts if left in a vehicle. I had a couple bottles in my first aid kit and it made a little mess once it thawed because the bottle cracked/leaked. Not sure if much can be done about that.....maybe a different container.

Should be able to take it out of the vehicles by late season, but need to remember to do so.

Is there a time span that you need wash your dog with it? Like within 15 minutes? 1 hour? No time constraints? I assume it works on humans and clothing as well? I got hit a bit as well since he was pointing it in thich cattails.

I knew there was trouble when my eyes started burning. Holy snikes does that stink at 5 feet.

This is a great potion and I have used it twice.

My brittany was sleeping on my bed an hour after

she got her de-skunking bath.

I have used it several times...specifically with Dawn Dish Soap. It doesnt matter when, and you may also do a couple treatments. You dont really want to get it in your dogs eyes. I dropped a few drops of olive oil in the dogs eyes before the bath. I read that doing so should help reduce eye irritation.

I never hunt without my "skunk kit" anymore. It is NO fun driving home with a dog that was sprayed.

I have used that recipe six times already. Four times in my dog's first year of hunting. It works. It usually best to use it as quick as you can after your dog has been sprayed.

Four times in the first year?? Wow! That's some bad luck.

My dog had the honor of getting her first dose last year. She didn't get it too bad though and I think she walked through some freshly sprayed grass instead of a direct shot. I never saw the skunk but could sure smell it. I called the vet and instead of selling me the off the shelf stuff, they gave me the formula posted above and it worked as advertised.

    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
