I caught my first skunk a couple of weeks ago. Following Bob's instruction, I layed the skunk on its stomach, held up its tail, made a crecent cut with a single edge razor blade between the tail and anus. This lets the anus and scent sacs sort of lay out where you can see them and then it is a simple matter to remove the essence with a hypodermic needle and syrenge. Once the essence is extracted, there in no problem in the skinning operation. Do wear gloves and the essence must be stored in a glass container with a metal lid as the essence will eat through rubber or plastic. I keep mine in a jelly jar but it still stinks through the container. Might want to put the container into another container to keep smell down. Bob's videos are really informative and make the process very easy to understand.
