Skunk Skins-How to ship-The express companies refuse to handle skunk skins if there is any odor to them. How can I remove this scent from the fur?
Before skinning the skunks make a small fire and throw an armful of evergreen boughs on it. This will make a dense smoke, and if the skunks are hung in this smudge, not too near the fire, for a couple of minutes and then hung up in the open air about a day, the odor will nearly all pass away. As soon as the skins are dry enough remove them from the boards and hang them in an airy place until you are ready to ship hem, and when sewn up in a sack you would not know that it contained a skunk skin.
