    Good shot. Nice. I was bushhogging Friday and got my lower part of field done and was up on my upper part and groundhog came out. Wish I had my rifle. Been a longtime since I busted one.

    They are few and far between these days. I spent many days in my teens and twenties pursuing the in Kentucky and Ohio. It takes me almost a year now to shot what I use to on a good day back in the 80's. Coyotes and lack of permission to get on property have put a big damper on my groundhog shooting.

    Just to make it interesting now a days I leave the 22-250 and 243 rifles in the safe and use the pistols since most of my shooting is done in small barn lots.

    This was a good day back in May of last year. Both from the same hole about 75 yards with a 22 Hornet. 1584466530-picsay.jpg

  7. They were never common in my E. KY home but we would see one on occasion. In Greenup and Rowan County I used to see three or four per month in the warmer months of the year. But, I have not seen but one in the last four years. I too blame the Coyotes mostly.

    I saw one a couple hours ago at my farm over on the hill. 250 yd and I did not fire my AR...thought I would bring a Real Rifle over ther in a day or two.
    I was over there filling up Holes they dug in my barn that I just emptied most of the hay out of.
    Coyotes about wiped them out and they moved in with us.
