Just got my pictures back from 1 hour photo place and I have an unidentified furry creature. Does anyone know if bobcats or badgers live in N Minnesota.
Had the photo place put the pics on CD when I get it back I'll post them
Well, I can tell you for a fact that there are bobcats in northern Minnesota. They love the thick brush and heavy timber of the northern half of the state. They are rarely seen, but you can usually find a set of tracks in the snow in heavy brush/timber. Not sure about badgers in this state. I've yet to see one or see signs of one......but who knows for sure?
I also am from Northern Minnesota, and yes indeed, Badgers do live in Northern Minnesota as several years ago I caught one in a wolf trap.
W/O a picture, it is hard to tell, could have been a bob cat, coon, porcupine, even a skunk???
Everyone has different ideas about trophy pictures. Looks around and you will see "long armers," "set behinders," "big cheesers," and "blood covered brutes." I have a few tips to keep your trophy pictures from being laughers or worse yet just plain gross.
#1 Clean it up. Try to avoid bullet holes, gut pile, mass amounts of blood, and the tongue sticking out. You don't want your big buck to look like a angry 1st grader with his tongue out or a MMA fighter during the 3 round.
#2 Long arming...
