I was going out gopher shooting with my good friend and I brought along my Garand and a couple other .22's. I know, I know, FAR too much rifle for gopher shooting but I had a good time with it and man I could pick them off with it! I haven't done a lot of shooting before but the rifle pretty much does it for you at anything under 75 yards. The real reason I posted was because while we were out at the farm, they also had some badgers out there which hunt the gopher population as well, and I almost got one. We found it sort of stuck out in the middle of the field and I guess it was digging a gopher hole out. The badger was kind of stuck out away from it's own holes and it knew we were there. My friend and I were driving around in my girlfriends gold Ford Focus! The badger knew we were there and it kept poking it's head out and watching us but not enough for me to take a shot. We both waited for the thing to show and I only had 2 rounds left in my clip, so I went to eject both my rounds and put in a new clip so when it came out we could unload on it. My buddy is covering the hole with his FN FAL and while I'm ejecting my rounds, the badger came out and my friend fired off around and missed (had his peep sight rolled up to 300 yards!). So, when I can back up to take a shot, the badger was in it's hole, scared far too much. He waited us out and we had to leave before he came out. GAAAA!! That was our prize trophy, and we couldn't get it because it waited us out. It was fun though. Anyway, any stories of your own?
