Activists from campaign group Stop The Cull now expect the pilot schemes to begin on Tuesday, according to their website.
Members of the group have reportedly gathered in Gloucestershire, where one of two badger cull pilot schemes is due to begin.
The group has formed a "wounded badger patrol" to help animals that have been shot at but not killed.
