|go for an afternoon Badger hunt. So he came and picked me up and we went back to his house, so that he I
called to talk to Brendan on Saturday around 12:30pm, we talked awhile and by 1:15pm we had decided to
could get ready to go.
We left his house around 3:30pm. We arrived in the sage around an hour later. We got to our first calling
spot, the weather was good, until we sat down, at which time a storm began to come toward us, the wind
began to literally howl from the north, sounded like a tornado was coming, just roaring, I looked to the
south and there was another storm coming to the north, where the two storms merged right above our
heads. Brendan and I barely got into the pickup when the deluge began. The trail were on turned into a
river, and the low spots become lakes, we drove through one of the lakes and I thought that it was going
to submerge the truck, mud bogging, what fun.
Back to the badgers. Brendan and I were driving along a dirt road in another area, and found a badger
crossing the road, so we sat up and tried to call the badger, but it wouldn't respond. Brendan got up and
went and put the stalk on the badger, finding it he shot it. Not only did he shot it, but he shoot it in the back
of it's mouth/throat, and the bullet exited in the middle of the back.
Here is Brendan, his badger is the one closest to him.
The badgers are taking a tailgate nap! But they are using my Rem. 700V, 22-250 Rem. as their protection.
The other badger is the one that I shot. We were driving down the road, and I saw it's head sticking out of a
whole right next to the road, so I yelled "STOP Badger!" So Brendan slammed on the brakes, I bailed out of
the truck, the badger stuck it's head out looking at us, I got the crosshairs on him, and then he took a step
out farther, so I laced him with my 22-250 Rem, with some rounds that Brendan had bought for me for my
Birthday, they were Remington 45 gr HP's. They shoot great out of my rifle. The bullet entered in the neck,
and had no exit, it was great. Brendan does tanning, so I am having him do it, and do the skull for a mount.
This is my Rem. 700V 22-250Rem, with the GSPHA Sticker on it.
Yeah! I know that I am not pretty enough to be in pictures! But! Someone has to do it!!!
You can see in this picture of the bullet entrance in the neck. There was no exit. 45gr Remington HP Bullet.
