Old hunting buddy turned me on to this -- it works fast and completely. 1 quart of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide
1/4 cup of baking soda
1 to 2 teaspoons liquid soap
Wash pet promptly and thoroughly, work the solution deep into the fur. Let your nose guide you, leave the solution on about 5 minutes or until the odor is gone. Some heavily oiled areas may require a 'rinse and repeat' washing.
Hydrox helps the baking soda 'bond' to the skunk oil and the soap carries it away.
