Well, we just got the bad news that we did not draw fall turkey tags. I thought it was sure thing. I have already rented the cabin and arranged for the time off so, going to have to figure out something else to hunt. There are badgers, some gray fox, coyotes, bear & mt. lion in the area where we are going hunting. With my 4 kids in tow, badgers my be the only realistic quarry of the bunch. From what I have gathered on this site, badgers in the UK are protected, not here, just the opposite. No closed season, no bag limit. I have never hunted them but have seen them while deer hunting. I don't know anybody that actually hunts for them, they do make a very fine rug mount on a piece of felt. I'm guessing a jackrabbit distress call placed out in the sage might work. Anyone do any damage control hunting for them? If so how do you hunt them?
