Travis, if you go out there to try to photograph the animal, first of all understand that you might never see it. That gets frustrating to some wildlife photographers. Remember the time of day that you saw it, and that is a good time to try again. Many animals like that have a daily routine. If you think you have converged to a den area, then keep some distance, but construct a blind. The Brits call that a hide. But you will want to sit there unseen until the animal comes along again. Then you will want the longest camera lens that you can afford. The smaller the animal, the longer the lens.
