    You mentioned a trapper saying the badger was a bit skinny/small, I have to agree. It's a good-sized animal you got, but there are ones out there that are really big.

    Here one takes on a grizzly bear:

    "So, what did you do at Burning Man, Tim?" "I took apart a badger to see how it worked. Then I made it into stew." I don't know why people bother taking drugs at Burning Man, if there's stuff like that going on without you even having to hallucinate it.

    Good work skinning and dismembering that badger. If you ever get tired of engineering, you could always be a trapper (if you weren't one already in a past life). I hope you had the chance to try it with some cold Fosters. Roast badger and Fosters pair up quite well. Cheers!
