Today was the last day of the early bull hunt & a local kid happened to get "sick" & missed school & took off on an elk hunt all by himself. Good kid, I see him quite often & he got a dandy!

A few days ago a local rancher got in touch with me & said he was having a real war with badgers, said they were tearing up the area around his barns & sheds & wanted to know if I would look into it for him. I told him I would love to

Well, I got out there, located the hidden key & drove into a remote area where few people ever go. Indeed he did have a badger problem, there were holes everywhere. What I found was he had a family of badgers that had taken up residence on his place, the 2 badgers I saw were about the same size, not big but nice, well furred badgers. I got one of them & I'll go back for the others if an elk doesn't get in the way. I was going to give this one away like I always do but it's a bit small, although the claws were nice. I'll see if I can't get a bigger one in the coming days.

My weapon of choice was my 8 shot Blackhawk 327 maggie using a 113 gr HP with 13 grs of H110. These are powder coated & are nasty when they whack something, badgers hate them. As usual the holster is my wonderful Barranti crossdraw.

I love it & it gets shot all year. When the weather gets cold I use it on Jackrabbits & that HP is like shooting a pillow when it smacks a big Jack. In warm weather it's a beast on ground squirrels, rock chucks, skunks, etc.

That's a dandy bull! Those .327's are 'deadly'. Congrats on the badger.
