Hey y'all just got back from the back yard with a successful stalk i live in town and we cant use firearms in town so the groundhog population around our area has begin to rise i have a 15acer field behind my house and it has taught me a lot over the years on how to stalk whitetails and other game , Let me ask ya have ya ever shot a groundhog at 5yds with a bow? have ya shot a groundhog with ur bow from any yardage? well if not ur missin a lotta fun let me tell ya this is great practice for later in the season ill admit it took me 2 shots tonight to pin this hog but not cuz i wiffed the 1st shot just missed the head by a few inces and ended up breaking the off side shoulder going in through the neck i just gave him another to speed his demise don't like to see them suffer any longer than they do i shoot field points for groundhogs and always aim for the head usually 1 shot kills that way now by end of month ill be switching to broadheads for groundhogs as it gets closer to opening day n ill be shooting for behind the shoulder got pics will have to try to up load tomorrow was a good time give it a try y'all its a blast .......Will

I shot one a few years ago with my crossbow. Just wanted to see if I could do it. But, when I hunt groundhogs I usually take my .17HMR or my .22 Magnum. I took this trio from a big brush/junk pile with my .22 Magnum. These are the first three groundhogs I took with this rifle. It is going to be my go to coon calling rifle come December. Just doing a little bullet testing this summer. Hoping to find a fur friendly bullet for the .22 Magnum.

Last year 20 yards. He went about 10 yards and died. He was standing up and I got him right in the chest.

Great job fella's!! As my uncle used to always say, they lived off of animals like groundhogs during the great depression....treat them right and cook 'em up!!
