Re: Badger with .222 Rem
Heck ya, those badgers got every hillside covered with huge holes. You know there isn't 1 badger for every hole, they must dig 20 for themselves or something..We dont see that many of them really. LIke I said, I"ve shot about 13 or 14, but thats been over about 6-7 year period. My dads only shot like 3 of them. I've talked to people around here that haven't even seen one.
Ha ha, funny you mention the barking thing. My dad read or heard that somewhere and he was the first to try it out. It has worked for us a couple times. We'll bark and hoot and holler and howl, its pretty comical at times, ha ha. Its kinda hard to hold steady when your barking and howling though, he he. It'll work on the younter dumb ones more then the older and wiser ones. But there have been times when we've stopped them and got a lot better shot oppurtunity then them running mach 10..We might have to try the slow caution approach. Everytime we see a coyote, its like slam on the brakes, by that time, the coyotes already hauling hay the other way, ha ha...I have actually heard that you can drive past them, drop somebody off, and have them walk back. I've done that a few times with success as well..I just dont think they like it when you slam on the brakes, and start moving all fast, and shut the truck off. Its just that you gotta try and hurry becasue they dont stand there forever, know what I mean, ha ha..I"ll give some thought to your tactics next time out though, see how that pans out..
