Hello, this hole is new within the last couple days at a property i trap and it makes me think its a badger as the owners wouldn't have had anything to do with it. First I want to confirm with you guys it is what I think it is and second how should I go about setting this to catch it, are there multiple in one or no, how often do they use it. Thank you

It looks like a badger hole. Badger probably isnt residing there however. Most likely dug up a rodent for a meal. Make coyote sets in the general area and it will turn up.

I agree with Danny on this one.

I'm with Danny and scout. That is a 'foraging' hole. It will look like someone dropped a bomb, when they dig a hole to stay in for any length of time. A good coyote set will take them, but be sure to double stake it DEEP.

Look around the area for the den site, a badger will plug the hole he's in with dirt. If legal for you I like a bucket set with a 220 when specifically targeting them., I use pheasant carcass or jackrabbit carcass for bait. If you have any questions feel free to shoot me a pm, I enjoy going after them.

Yep most likely badger digging, just make the best coyote set by it and let the badger turn you up some good dirt.
They make a good mess, good luck

Badgers dig, eat, and repeat. That is still a fine set location but I rarely have to set for badger- if they are around they find you and usually quickly
