Anyone getting antsy?

I was out with my daughter the other day looking at prospect farms and asking farmers for groundhog hunting rights. It sure is nice when you ask and you have a 3year old next to you . Psy ops at its best. Anyone else getting the bug this time of year?

I found 20 new ground hog holes on my family farm and first walk around at the inlaws yielded 40+ should be fun as I can set up out to 440-880 yards on the holes....1140 if I'm feelin lucky...

Oh Yeah!!! My wife and I hunt groundhogs together and I told her on the way to church this morning that I have a plan for when they start coming out this spring. Hunt the soybean stubble fields before the corn is planted. Then hit the soybean fields when the soybeans are coming up and the hogs are eating them.

Saw my first hog yesterday afternoon. It was even on some of the ground I can hunt them on.
