Nice catch! It's crazy they can do that much damage with a trap on one of their front feet. How long are your chains? That catch circle is huge.

12" of chain. The one with large catch circle about 8" of cable was exposed as well ... I pulled out the stake with ease and moved new sets to the outside of catch circle

Badgers are about the only animal that I cannot, for the life of me, estimate their fur value from one animal to another. I've sold $5 badgers and I've sold $70 badgers and for the life of me I can't tell once from the other.

Throw some of those badger glands in your coyote or cat gland lure if you want to perk it up some.

They are like ringtail cats. We don't have a ton of them, but they just show up . . . sometimes in the most odd places. We don't have the agriculture here so we don't have that habitat to support them. I catch a handful every year in little sandy washes in the desert, but I catch just as many in the rocky, boulder slopes covered with pinion and juniper. There just isn't any logic to where they will show up.

I caught one a week or so ago in a boulder pile and it had rearranged every boulder within reach of the trap -- no soil to dig but it had moved every rock in the area.

That top badger picture is cool. Typical badger response: "Maybe if I show him my teeth he will go away?"

Ya I don't mind a couple of them but after that many in 1 day I was beginning to get annoyed with pulling up to a mound of dirt every time. Talk to one of the ranch hands on this ranch and boy they were happy to hear that I was catching that man. This place is just riddled with badger holes. In the long run...catching all these badgers will greatly help me with the renewal of my permission to trap here in years to come.

On a side note almost all of the coyotes I am catching here are all very large mature dogs. They flew this spot ranch last year and killed 700 coyotes (so I was told by one of the ranch hands) I have heard this is one of the places that they have had to pull off because they ran out of shells for the day. They flew it a week before I started trapping here and yesterday when I checked I saw 9 coyotes in the a new section of fields that I set up. Anyways I think I am catch the smarter old dogs that have adapted to the planes. Any thoughts on this?

NV SAGE:

So you started asking about badgers and sure enough . . .



Why don't you ask about big tom cats?

For he life of me I can not catch cats. Trust me wish I could be more of a cat trapper but just don't think I have it me... But those damn stink dogs I can catch them all day long. In time maybe I can learn to catch more then just 1 or 2 a year.
Nice cat!!

NV SAGE, I caught two badgers today and just couldn't stop thinking about your earlier post. Both badgers were caught with two feet, one was both front and the other was a front and hind leg. They were caught in a two trap walk through for bobcat. I caught two cats on Wednesday and two badgers today, I certainly liked the skinning Wednesday better!

They were both males, the first one was much larger. I cased them out, what stretcher should be used for them? I've only stretched one badger and that was about twenty years ago and I split it and stretched it open. CAN NOT believe how much fat those things have!

Yep they sure do have a ton of fat on them. I haven't put many of the badgers up that I catch but the ones I have I just put up on my cat strrtchers.
