I have an issue at the house and haven't done much skunk eradication. Any suggestions on what I should do?

In the head, preferably a side shot. I've killed quite a few over the past few years this way. Stomp around or toss a rock near them to get them a little ways from the house. About 1 in 4 sprayed after shot.

A friend at church live traps them, then calmly covers with a blanket, then hooks up a hose from his roto-tiller (on blocks) exhaust and eases the other end of the hose under the blanket.

I have spine shot a few that have not sprayed. Any other shoot placement is going to result in more spraying than non-spraying for me.

A soft point .223 is hell on them. The one I shot about turned inside out and didn't spray!

Hit 'em with a 60gr Partition from behind and they do turn inside out. My choice would be an American Eagle HP in my suppressed 10/22. Trapping them and drowning or gassing is another, more personal way.
