    I deleted an earlier post because I didn’t read carefully and thought you were talking about wild hogs. As I posted in another thread, I still believe Lexington Ky is the groundhog Capital!

    Been one under my pool deck for a couple weeks now. I was worried about him digging under the liner. Fast little shit. He finally popped his head out while I was setting up a new rest on the critter gitter. Wrong place, wrong time

    I went several years in the mid to late 90's, without seeing any groundhogs. Maybe longer. I see them pretty regularly now. Coyote numbers down, or did the groundhogs just get smarter?

    My brother and I, back when we were teenagers met the meanest groundhog to ever live.
    My uncle bought each one us a single shot 410 shotgun to squirrel hunt with.
    Well, we took off hunting and was walking along a nice ridge loaded with hickory trees.
    My brother said "Look at the size of that squirrel up on that limb" We walked a little
    closer to get a better look at him. It was not a squirrel but a big old whistle pig up
    there laying on that limb resting.
    My brother said "Im gonna shoot him off that limb" He raised that new 410 up and aimed.
    POW !! That old groundhog rolled off that limb and fell to the ground with a thud.
    That is when he and I knew we messed up. That old hog got up to his feet growling like a grizzly bear.
    He looked at us and came on a dead run straight at us like a runaway train. Teeth snapping, hair raised,
    growling all the way.
    I ran left and my brother ran right and that ground bear went right between us. At the time we did not realize that he was
    just heading for his hole in the ground behind us. He sure put the fear in us that day ,,,,,LOL

    lol. I spotted one in an alfalfa field about 20 yards away one day, several years ago. He was grazing, carefree as a lark. I squatted down and slipped up on him. He had no clue I existed. When I got within about 3 feet of him, I jumped up and yelled like a madman. He just fell back and gave it up, panting like he'd just run a marathon. I started laughing, and he laid there on his back for a full 30 seconds. He finally regained his composure, rolled over, and ambled off very slowly. Glanced at me over his shoulder twice as if he was saying, "Asshole." It was hilarious.
