I had a trio of badgers cross the road in front of me. I pulled over to see if I could pop over the hill to get a shot. I exited out the passengers door of my gmc topkick 5500 (very roomy cab if your wondering how a full grown man just jumped out the passengers side door) anyway im glad I looked down cause the young ones didnt follow mom over the hill they must have gotten confused because there they were waiting under my door when i opened it. They were not happy to see me. Took the pics with my phone but they turned out pretty well.

Hey, good job on the pics guys! Not very often people get to see Badgers close up.
They really can be mean though. A few years back I was shooting at one (it was running) from the truck with a 22 pistol. He managed to get over the hill about 100 yds away before I got dialed in on him. So, I grabbed another clip and took off on foot chasing him.
I managed to catch up to the big fella just right over the hill from where I'd last seen him, I was up on him before I even realized it. No sooner did he see me on his tail and he was turned around 180 and coming straight at me! Teeth showing, claws churning, growling and hissing the whole time too!
That's the only time I've ever been "in retreat" and shooting at the same time. I did get him killed, but he was only about 5 yds from me at the moment. Sure am glad they aren't real big and fast, I would've been had. I've caught em in coyote traps before and they're pissed and mean then for sure, but that was the first time I'd ever had one charge me out in the open.
That had to be hilarious. It's not when it's happening but after the fact
you can't do nothing but laugh! Surely put a smile on my face.
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!! ---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!
Kinda neat being that close to the youngsters.
Popt this medium sized female a couple weeks ago while out doggin. The 40 grain Vmax out of the 223 put her light right out. Turns out she was in the middle of dineing on a ground squirrel.......If I had known my partner had never sean a badger before I would have had him try to take it away from her
Its a good thing badgers are not any bigger or it wouldnt be safe out on the prairie ! Stepped on one in the dark one morning going out to get cows out of the pasture=scared the bejesus outa me and wrecked a new pair of boots!!
