How do you guys get skunk smell off traps ? I've got one hanging that I don't use any more just been hanging on that nail for 3 season even if it didn't smell it would hang there but I passed it few days ago and it's still stinky (it keeps wife out of fur building)
If it's one that you can rotate to the water line, if you water trap, a season of that usually cleans the smell. off. I used to do 1.5 coils back in the fox days for mink. If it's not completely aired out it'll skunk your wax if you wax. If you paint I'd go ahead and paint it. I'm beginning to think we don't have to be completely odorless with traps.

Something I would highly recommend when skinning skunks and for me mink or anything you don’t like to smell you need to buy Scent Thief. It’s a black spray bottle with yellow lettering. I had a skunk leaking some goodness out and I sprayed him with the Scent Thief and the smell was gone. I went from gagging to skinning in seconds. It’s amazing how this stuff works. It’s like a human scent jammer.
I don’t know if it would get ride of smell on traps as a cleaner but will cover up smell while skinning for sure. You can order or I got my at cabelas a little cheaper that internet.
