    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.

    I may be opinionated...but, my opinion is the only one that matters anyway.

    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!!
