Someone told me once if you can "bury" your hand in the back of a badger's fur, its probably worth selling as fur. I've only sold 1 digger at auction. It was a Nov catch of average to large size and not overly pale. The fur did seem thick so I put it up. The price started at $15 but ended up at $21. I was ok with that. Not a $50+ score but it wasn't an extra large silvertip either. There seems, at least in the past, a pretty fast drop off at NAFA from those really nice badger prices down to the $10-15 range. I may have to do some occupied hole hunting myself later this winter. Its been a while since I scored on a digger...

It seems like if I set within 100 yards of a fresh dig this year that badger will work that set, the one yesterday left hair in one set and was caught in the other set 10 feet away, not bad fur and white backed. I had some spring badger and some fall badgers last year and the buy liked the fall ones better then the spring ones so go figure. LOL

Went through the books today to see what’s been taking fur. For what it’s worth the really loud baits are up. Way up.

said we were supposed too. streets are dry as of now though. theyre also yapping about a storm coming in this weekend. to quote the weather man "we could either see quite a lot of snow, or very little from this system". so theyre forecasting somewhere between 0 and 48 inches i guess.

Busy day started early got 12 extra sets out today, finally picked up a good yote (big male) 1 grinner, 2 badgers and 2 coons. Badgers are so thick I had one a couple days ago and filled in the big hole it made with a hoe, I go by that catch circle today and another badger had dug a hole in the circle, never seen that before. LOL

I pulled most of my dps last Sunday but ran a couple of places during this week that were on the way to work. Decided to take today off of work because I need to get some stuff done in town and big blizzard coming in tonight and Saturday so I pulled the rest of my dps today. I have a few coon cubbies out. Set another one last night, freshly built a couple of weeks ago, along a fence line between a pasture with a deep-side creek running through it and a crop field, I've caught a few coon there before. This boy was out prowling last night and he had no problem sticking his head through my newer Bridger 160. I thought he might be the heaviest coon of year so far but only went about 24 or so on the scale.

Getting to be routine 1 coon (no tail), 2 badgers and a yote again today the badgers just keep coming. Picked up a free yote today guessing it was shot gunned on the paid bird place next to where I'm trapping at, will see how good it is tomorrow.

Figured there’d be something moving before the “storm” but I’m skunked for the first time this season today. The rain this morning is sure gonna make a headache though

Trapping rats in their huts is tough work but easy to catch them. Just make sure you really get it sealed up well again after you put your trap in

Yep cut the huts or use a ice auger with baited conis is my favorite just need to wait 4-5 days between checks or they won't work the sets.
