    Been after this guy for 3 days now. The first time that I saw him he saw me first and booked it to his hole and wouldn’t come back out. The 2nd time he wasn’t where I was expecting him to be and he made it to his hole again... determined to not let that happen a 3rd time, I called Erica on my way home from work and told her to grab the 17Remington and set it by the back door along with a pair of ear plugs. Figuring he would be close to his hole again; I crawled on my hands and knees to get the high ground. Sure enough there was. Feeding and with his back to me.

    SPOILER ALERT! He didn’t make it back to his hole a 3rd time. This is the 3rd chuck this week.....I have seen 2 more around. Thinking I’ll leave those until later in the summer.

    That looks like a big one. Congratulations on staying after him till you got him.

    Now, if you can just get Erica to Cook it for Supper....

    Man idk....I’ve shot a few chucks over the years. Nothing ever made me want to eat one. I’ve heard they are decent, and considering what they eat they probably ain’t bad, but I just haven’t been that hungry.

    I remember the day when you could drive up the road , stick a gun out the window and shoot as many groundhogs as you could and no one said a word about it. Farmers around wanted them gone.
