Little FR I ease out of the house every day now and look past my garage to the neighbors barn looking for one before I slam the house door. I usually kill 5 or 6 a year from there but didn't see any from there last year.
I was going to go over to the neighbors hot spot this afternoon. Two big barns two sheds and a sink hole that would swallow a small farm house. All sitting with in 150 yards from the spot where I park my quad and set up.
But when I got things together and headed over they were loading up cattle.
The Contenders are ready for action and I have been working up loads for a Savage 112 single shot in 22-250 that I picked up back in the fall.

a good groundhog, is a dead groundhog. if ya cant shoot em, pour some bleach in the entrance hole, and the vent hole.
fumes sink, replaces oxygen, into the tunnel. i'd imagine ammonia would work, just not at the same time. makes toxic fumes. cant remember the name right now, starts with an H. i believe.

Killed 2 more before I quit. This rascal was 85yds. No exit. Mach 2 must expand well even at lower velocity. He still has some delicious soybeans in his mouth. Made our hogs happy, saved some pig feed too.

If I can’t shoot them I’ll trap them. The .17 HM2 is the business for around grain bins.

Neighbors mowed hay last week but I haven't had time to go over there. Went out today and watched some sink holes in two different fields. Didn't see anything over there so stopped at the corner of a hay field over looking my favorite barn site. This one raised up out of the grass
as soon as I stopped the car. Stood up watching me the whole time I was setting up the sand bags and resting the pistol. The 6mm TCU hit point of aim where the cross hairs were sitting just under the chin
