Default Badger season

The first of August marks the beginning of badger season. So, I am taking my Mossy 590 mariner on a little hike tomorrow morning. I love the taste of the sweet badger meat. Then, my friend and I are going to sit and wait for the Roe bucks. I hope to have pics of a successful harvest to post. Ain't life grand!!!

How do you hunt the badgers? Do you have to make them come out of the hole somehow? Never heard of such a thing. Sounds fun though.

Dachshund (badger dog) go into the holes to chase them out. Or, we wait for them without dogs. Did you know that fox and badger are sometimes found together in the same hole? Badgers sometimes make the den cave in to trap the dogs. Hunters have had to dig their dogs out with heavy machinary. Or, they will sneak behind and tear the dogs up. Badgers are vicious little bastards. Anyways if a fox also comes by tomorrow, we will shoot it too. My friend makes jewelry with their teeth or trophies with the whole fox.

Sounds like fun but I'm not eating one of those things.

I've read about Dachsunds originally being bred for hunting Badger. With the short legs allowing them to get down in the holes.

I've got two miniatures and they can be mean as hell sometimes. lol They make for a great alarm system.

But the American variety seem to require about 20 hrs. of sleep a day. We treat ours better than most people treat their kids.

Here one of them in his normal habitat.

The baggers in CO, where I grew up, were mini wolverines. Mean, nasty, and tough. I never heard of eating them! Skunks, raccoons, porcupines and badgers were pests we would kill on sight.

I hear the two-baggers are even uglier and likely to snore.
