Since it is Groundhog day and I can't wait for spring, I am starting this thread to inspire spring to make its way to Ohio. Spring in Ohio brings green to our fields and that equals hungry groundhogs. I enjoy warm summer days looking for groundhogs as much as standing on the trap line. Here are some groundhog hunting pics of mine, please add yours.

The .223 and Grant got these, but they ate many beans before we got there.

This was one old and big groundhog. He was living in a farmer's collection pile that included furnature, old pallets, etc. This g-hog could always see us coming from the only access to the area. He would hide in the mix of items instantly. Grant made a wonderfully long shot one summer day when he peaked his head over a pallet. That is a 25lb shot bag that we filled with sand as a rest in front of the hog for size reference.

Tch, tch...if you'd quit planting beans in those fields, Joe's "brothers" would have no reason to be there.



(Nice shot on that mom and her babies...bet they have no problem seeing their shadows now!)

those SOBs do some damage when they dig a hole next to a foundation. My parents' barn foundation was partly caved in due to years of groundhogs digging into the rock foundation.

We don't have groundhogs here in Oregon. Instead we have a 3/4 scale version called the yellow Bellied Marmot, better known as the Rockchuck. The 22-250 rules on these guys.

Hey, where's the snow? Or are those summer pics?
