WoodieSC - Let me know what method you use and how well it works I have a similar situation at my home. I've seen two that have been using my property as a highway. I can't discharge a firearm in my area, so I've been thinking about running an arrow through them. After reading this, that might not be the best way. Two years ago I let my Golden out to do his business when he bolted around the corner of the house. I followed since he normally has a leisurely stroll before he finds the right spot. As I rounded the corner he already had the skunk in his mouth shaking it. I yelled for him to drop it, which he did (read - bad move). When he dropped it the skunk lifted and sprayed right in his face/chest. Man that stuff stinks. Many tomato / vinegar and baking soda baths later..... For about a year whenever he would get wet I could still smell skunk.
