Default Badger Encounter

While out horn hunting I had a run in with a badger with an attitude problem. I at first could not tell what was moving in the grass at my feet, then it turned and raised its head. I did not have a gun with me, but my buddy who was about 100 yards away had his little .380 Beretta pocket pistol. I yelled for him to hurry over as all I had between myself and a badger was my hiking pole. I managed to get the gun from my buddy and connect on my 3rd shot from about 25 feet.

I have always wanted to get a badger, as they make a really fine rug for the wall, and are impressive with the colors on their coat and their long claws and teeth.

While skinning the badger out my buddy went for a little hike and found an old rusted bucket that I used to pack the badger out. They have a strong musk smell, and I was thankful I would not have to strap it to my pack.

Glad you didn't end up getting your foot or any part ripped off; those things can be pretty vicious from what I have heard. And it'll look great up on your wall
