Hunting & Trapping

Badgers can be hunted and trapped in Missouri.

Badgers are heavy-bodied, medium-sized mammals with a broad head, short neck, short legs and a short bushy tail. The ears are low and rounded. The claws, generally gray with a slight yellowish tinge, on the front feet are very long. The brown face is marked with a white stripe, white patches and vertical black bars. Males and females look alike, although males are heavier.
