What??? No varmints left???
 
Been over a month since anyone posted here. I guess that everyone is haveing my luck. :( I haven`t shot at a froundhog yet this year. I seen the first 1 I`ve seen in weeks today, but didn`t have a gun. Haven`t seen a coyote in acouple of weeks eather, but I guess that don`t matter much since I have yet to kill my first 1 this year. Did pretty good untill the first of the year and since then I`ve missed acouple off hand shots that I thought I should have made, but it seem most of the time I see them when I don`t have a rifle of there is a house behind them. I took several running coyotes off hand last fall and the last one I got was running at 314 yrds. over the hood of my pick-up. I was on a roll last fall, but then I guess I gor run over.:(

Not so sure if its bad luck or just good conservation practice.
This is the time when the young need the mothers and I think most sportsmen hold off the hunting for awhile.

Well, I was raised on a farm and we hunted groundhogs hard early in the spring becaused we figured that every one we got early was 4 and they eat alot of our beans. Guess I did to good. :rolleyes: I still got some arould the building I need to get rid of, but they never seem to be out when I`m around, about to set traps.

Groundhogs
 
Farmers at home used to have me start shooting them about this time of the year. They ate the crap outta of the beans. They wanted 'em all gone...but even with a long shooter that was nigh on to impossible where I lived. When they took out all the hedgerows it sure did for them pretty permanent though:rolleyes: Got a minimum of a buck each to shoot 'em. Highest I ever got was 10 bucks for one. He was a real hog though. He ate over an acre of beans all by himself. He ate most at just barely can see and for 20 minutes in the evening. He even came out on a nice moon bright night...according to the farmer. Shot him at just slightly over 300 yds. Left a very thing groove in the mound where he came up. 1/2 inch lower he would have been safe..at least that time.:D

Was out scouting 3 farms last weekend and saw no groundhogs. Some fresh dirt but thats it.
There are three chucks living behind the forge but they're my "pets". :D

well got my 6.5 tuned in to 1000 yards, but not too optimistic, since the coyotes showed up here, all the chucks you see are on the shoulder of the roads denning in culverts. the wide open river bottom fields are vacant unless ya wanna shoot at crows.
