I have tried several time without success to get a Badger into a cage.

Hopefully, someone can offer a tip or two.

I think foothold traps in Montana are still legal. Get some and find their burrows. Don't place them in an area frequented by loose pets.

Reinforce your cage, these are not your Brit badgers nor do they give a hoot about your will being

Humptulips and Rainer 10,  I proudly and sorrowfully can claim I no longer live in King Inslee Kingdom.  Where Washington has been my home for the past 61 years. In just 32 days and counting I will officially be a Montana Resident.  Out here Badgers are considered a pest and can be trapped and hunted year round.  I have some new activity on my property so this evening I plan on convincing them that this is not a good place to reside.

Congrats on the move and glad to hear it is legal there.  I was surprised and disappointed to hear it was illegal here when I looked into it.  I am overrun with badgers on my property.  A new batch of babies just showed up.  Three more little guys to look for a home to tunnel out.

Best of luck getting rid of yours.

Sounds like a good reason to take the online trappers course. So you can get a cage trap and see if you can catch them. Study for a bit then take it, maybe takes a hr / hr and a half.
Just took the test and passed. Thanks for the tip.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Badger's have a beautiful coat of Fur. With some luck you may even score a Double.  :tup:

In my experience with badgers, you could get out and yell “hey badger!”, and it would come to whoop your @$%.

 :yeah:

Hard a pair charging/chasing me in 12” stubble  :chuckle: could barely see them except when they’d hit the tire tracks. Three guys running zig zag trying to make it back to the pickup.
