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.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.

    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
