Pacific Northwest Badgers

Hi Everyone,  I’m from western Washington State and have been trying to find an American Badger for a very long time but to no avail.   Since I have to trek to the desert to find them I’m always limited to one or two night visits to their habitat.  Does anyone have any pointers of where a very active badger area/natal den might be found in the Washington/Oregon/British Columbia region?

    Hi Joe

    I can’t swear to how reliable it is but I saw a Badger in among the Washington Ground Squirrels at Moses Lake in Washington State.

    Given I saw it at 11am (it popped out of its burrow when I was squeaking in a Squirrel) then I suspect they ought to be easy to find at night there. Snake River near Boise is also a very good place for them (see cheers

    I live on the Olympic Peninsula and a dog on our property drug in a mummified badger carcass. I was surprised to have one found in the area at all.

    I’ve seen an American badger twice now on bald hills road in yelm wa. Only place I’ve ever seen one around here.

    While driving both day and night from Moses lake to soap lake on Stratford road I see them. Quite often spring to the warming of summer then I don’t know where they go.Early around 8:00 and then about 6:00pm . My best guess is it mating time and me on motorcycle don’t pose a big problem.
