View Full Version : I wouldnt want to mess with this bad boy

Just thought I would share some pics of a badger. Not sure if this would be the right forum for it or not but here it is. It was picked up off the side of the road. I dont think I have ever seen one but sure looks like it could do some damage if it was too close and pissed off.

Yup, they don't make good house pets!

I've always wanted to get a nice one to get mounted but I've yet to see one in the wild. Cool mount.

I ran headone into one at Fort Hunter Liggett a few years back. Worst possible place too. I was sidehilling above this deep cut creek looking for hogs laying in the mud below. FResh hog tracks and turds everywhere so I wasn't watching the trail out in front of me real well. Came around this outcropping where it was real steep and here came Mr. Pissed off badger. Looked like he was sportin' a wedgie from the scowl on his face. My life flashed before me since I only had 3 ways to go, two obviously fatal. I chose to immediately back down the trail and give Mr. Charming a LOT of leeway and let him pass. He waddled on by and I breathed a sigh of relief.

I feel you Spectr a few years back I was checking cattle on the 4 wheeler and saw what looked like a bath mat running across a field, well I hauled it around front and there it was not 10 feet away. It just stopped sap back and looked at me like "You Want Some?" Being unarmed I gladly allowed him to go on his way. can you say nerve racking? http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/sad.gif

Actually badgers make very good pets if you can find a young one ( baby ). I've killed a few in my life, they are not hard to kill. Of the ones I have taken I never found an exit hole, they are tough.

He## yes they are tough what other animal that size takes a frontal from a .270WSM 150 Power point at 150 yrds and walks 20 yards to his hole?!?

That is a nice mount. Scary looking too. You should put that near your front door and watch family and friends get startled. That would be funny. Enjoy.
Definitely a nice mount. http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-faces-toast-beers.gif I have only seen one in CA so far. Ran into him during an A20 (X-12) backpack hunt on the way in for 5 days. Didn't know if I could take him or not and didn't try. He cruised by me at about 10 yards in the grass, I did have the bow at the ready though if he turned my way.
