Default What made this hole??

This is at my lease in Kirkland 10 miles east of Childress. Its on the edge of a wheat field. The hole went back as far as I could see and was big enough in diameter that I could probably fit my leg into it.

I'd be shocked to find out it's not an armadillo. Certainly could be badger, but I've seen a couple hundred just like it on our old ranch made by armadillos.

They pay $2.50 down in Halletsville, $3.00, maybe more.

I've seen 1 badger in 12 years on our lease south of Vernon. I was in Webb county this past week and saw 3 in 1 day. There holes were a lot bigger and deeper than that one.

We have several holes just like that on our place south of Kirkland. Yesterday I watched an armadillo go into one of them. I always thought badger until then.

Looks to me like an original badger den dug out by a coyote. Almost impossible to say what dug it originally. Could be a lot of things living in it now though. Most critters are pretty opportunistic when it it comes to living quarters. Could be badger, rabbit, coyote, possum, bobcat, taratulas, snakes, Jimmy Hoffa, or Hussain (oh wait, he's dead). Looks for tracks or put a camera on it.
