Started out the day hunting pheasants behind Gunner, my Britt. We walked out a quarter section in loops, getting up several hens. Finally got a good point on a Rooster, dropping him into the flooded field. Walked out the final loop, and decided to not cross the creek as it looked too deep, but Gunner went across, and in one clump of brush got up a nice covey of quail, and three roosters. Too far for a good shot, so I just stood there, and kicked my lazy butt for not getting across the creek. On the way back, he got kind of jumpy, which I though was odd, so took off at a run to see what was going on. Almost ran right up on a badger that was in a very angry mood. At three yards, the Sweet 16 took all of the angry out of him.
As the afternoon went on, we hit a couple of other places with no results other than a nest robbing possum that bit the dirt as well, so Gunner went to the dog box for a well deserved rest, and I went to the deer blind.
Some does came out right at last legal shooting light, so I took the biggest. 117lbs. Nice and fat. She was a chore getting out of the flooded field. It was so mushy, the ATV couldn't even get in there, so it took me two hours of dragging and jerking in the 12" deep mud to get her to solid ground where the three wheeler could take over. Sorry about the crappy deer pic, but I was so exhausted, that I really didn't care if the pic came out or not.

Nice day of mixed bag huntin' Dennis. I had no idea that we had badgers in Okla till a buddy from Prague said that they have them there. Sure hate to bump into one on the way to a stand in the dark!
