You're doing good Glen.  I went out last Monday to a meadow where we normally see several groundhogs.  Stayed out most of the day.  Didn't see a one.  For some reason (coyotes??) we just don't seem to have as many as in past years.

 :roflmao:  James-- That was Diane laughing her ass off at me!!  :biggrin: We were talking about the deer that were about 135-150yds in front of us & the fawn that was right around 90-100yds in front. I didn't hear her say there was a groundhog out & I thought she wanted up close footage of the fawn. After about 1 minute I realized she was telling me there was a hog at 50yds & she wasn't asking where the fawn went!!  :roflmao:  And you're right about that big boy. That's why I scaled him & posted a pic of it. That was one heavy dude!! The Bopeye of the groundhog world if you will!!  :roflmao: :roflmao:

Just funnin ya Bop!!  :biggrin:

Jim-- The hay fields here haven't produced much for us the last couple years either. It's been mostly bean fields. The coyote theory is a valid one too. Hang in there tho. I know 1st hand that hunting anything in W Va is tough.  :wink:

I even got to nail 2 yesterday as well. My 1st one was with the 204 & a 32gr V-Max at about 60yds. We couldn't get this on videoed because Diane couldn't find it. It was just out of her sight as she was setting about 1 foot lower to me & to my right. So I scrambled everything inside his 11lb head too.  :eyebrownod:

My next one came with the 22WMR. We were walking back the lane between barns & I caught him out in the open at 50yds. The Marlin WaMeR did a number on this one too. No video as we were walking.

This is probably it til next weekend. I hope it holds you over til then.  :eyebrownod: The hogs will be tough to see at 1st. But the 204 gives up there location nicely.  :laf:

Here is Diane's 1st hog of the day. Head shot.  :yoyo:

I took the 17HaMeR out to retrieve her hog & walked up over the hill quck. It paid off on a small hog that was caught a long ways from it's hole. Diane's is the larger of the two.

This is her 2nd hog of the day. You can't see it but it's there. You'll see the puff from the gaping hole in it's neck tho.  :wink: I called it a headshot thru the binos but I was wrong. The shot was a tad low but effective nonetheless.
