I once lived next to a large, open field. Skunks would wander by on
warm, humid, still
evenings in summer. The odor was never terribly strong or long-lasting,
so not a bother.
A fence might cause them to change their path, if you know where they go
and how close
they are. They never bothered me, and I never saw them. When I lived
in a home with
motion lights in yard, raccoons and possum would activate the light -
never saw a skunk
there. Perhaps what you have is an occasional skunk encountering other
Coyote or foxes around?
I live in the city and miss the critters I used to meet - possum and
raccoons would come
over to my Florida room late at night, stand up on hind legs to peer in
at me :o) Something
strange about the possums is that I could always hear them before the
light came on and
they sounded like humans walking through the grass.
