    hey gang

    gotta a major problem with groundhogs.

    about 20-30 of these creatures are in a 2 acre area of homeowners, and destroying everything...gardens, swimming pools, sheds,barns,garages....
    appears they have a vast tunnel network..

    i thought about shooting at them, but there are houses,kids,people,cars,etc, in all directions.

    any of you know of a way to trap or kill these creatures?

    thanks :confused:

    use a .22 or a compound bow.

    Or call Bill Murray

    They sting a little but if you're a tough kid you can suck it up.

    If it moves, this dog has killed it, possums, coons, snakes, pit bull dog ( unfortunatelly) I could go on .. Rent her from me, for the cost of her food!!! The beast can eat. She is very defendive of her turf ( our yard, hence the poor pit ) and my family.. the dog is an absolute varmit killing machine:D
