Title: Going groundhog hunting thursday
Post by: fuzztsimmers on June 12, 2017, 11:49:03 PM
So im going groundhog hunting this Thursday. My dad is bringing my 17hmr I'm taking the 22mag. Want to take the 222 but i need to replace the barrel the damaged chamber is getting bad enough it binds up. I didn't damage the chamber but use has made it worse.

Good luck, fuzz! HMR and .22 Mag should knock them down. Where are you fellas hunting?

Do you have lots of groundhogs? We see very few here.

Going out to a friends farm. Also in southern pa. There are tons of ground hogs here. With the wood lines, brush piles, and fields all in such close proximity there is perfect land for them to live and eat.

Didn't manage to get any. Did get a shot but i blew that. When pa's dove season comes in we might be going there to hunt those.

We've never really done it before so we probably just did it wrong. Was pretty hot to so might not have been a great day to go.

Yeah, I bet those ghogs didn't poke their noses out. Maybe very early in the morning they were out during that hot day.

The only lace around here with a huntable   amount of GH's is the city gulf course.
There never pleased to see my with the 6mm in the cart...
We shoot them if we see them out and about but never made a "Trip" to shoot them.
