Skunks don't smell unless attacked or something scares the heck out of
them? Even then, the skunk doesn't smell, but whatever attacked or
scared them probably will. Well, they smell if crushed by a car or
I've had skunks living under my shed a number of times and only smelled
them rarely, probably just before eaten by something or run over by a
car. They never seem to stay around long? I've had dogs come home
smelling like skunks many times though. I've even seen skunks kept as
pets, with the smell glands supposedly intact... no smell, just don't
piss them off...
Are you sure it's not a local dog that enjoys the smell and found a way
to enhance the neighborhood aroma:-)
At any rate, a .22 short should work well.

I agee that shooting works. Another thing is that even skunks don't
like the smell of ammonia, if you want to toss over a poorly sealed
containter of ammonia, or squirt ammonia with a pressurized pump tank
sprayer, they may move on.
Standard precautions apply: gloves, googles, etc.
