What have you used to kill chucks?

Things I have used to kill rockchucks:

5 iron at BLCC
Dart gun at BLCC
Darton 80lb bow
22 LR
22 Magnum
12 Guage shotgun
17 HMR
17 Remington
17 Mach IV
223 Remington
22-250 Remington
220 Swift
6mm BR
243 Winchester
6mm Remington
257 Roberts
257 Roberts AI
25-06
260 Remington
7mm STW (when they are out there a ways)
and last but not least the good old 30.06.

Closest shot is with the 5 iron kinda like playing polo from a golf cart. Catch a large chuck resting in the middle of the fairway and run them down!

Most chucks killed in a day was 250 plus on one 40 acre farm that was just infested.

Longest shot to date is 873 yards with the Sendero in 7mmSTW. Chuck was still tossed in the air a good 6 feet!

Mike.

    I've killed varmints with everything in my arsenal including the 460Wby mag. The Hornady 300gr HP bullet @ 3,200 ft/s will do some interesting things to a groundhog, regardless of whether or not he is in the hole.

    A dead branch that I picked up. Chased him down on the school playground and beat him to death. I believe I was in the fourth grade at the time. Brought him home in a paper bag on the school bus. Roasted him up over an open fire and tried to eat him.

    The treehuggers would have you locked up if you tried that today. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Better to use a firearm while we still have them. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Got one with a 4-wheeler two days ago. Got a fox the same day with the same 4-wheeler. Saw a bear but he wasn't in the road at the time and don't think I would have run him down. Have had numerous close calls with deer on the 4-wheeler but fortunately have not connected.
