I'd share but I'm gonna keep my spot to myself. I believe just about any remote spot on the Raisin (in non populated areas) will be just fine, or a local drain.

There as as thick as prarie dogs around here..... Little more hard to get though....

Get a window mount for your spotting scope and drive the back roads. If you see one, talk to the farmer and promise not to leave them in the field. (throw them in the ditch or a place of the farmers pick) You'll find farmers hate fixing equipment trashed by a chuck hole and few say no.

Yep just as weshootalot said,
I was going to say just go around to local farmers and I'm sure they will have no problem taking a few off their land as they are a nuisance. I used to go around on back roads and pop a few but it is getting risky to do it that way.

Re: Ground hogs in se mi

We have a opossum problem here. They keep getting in the barn and destroying straw thats to be sold. (I farm by the way...) (eradicate my own hogs....).

Those things die hard but I've taken to popping them (in the straw) with my Bond Derringer with a 410 shotshell of No.8 at close range (6-8 feet). Only takes one and no mess plus aim isn't critical, just point that way and squeeze....

They go on the compost pile with the hogs and the cattle that don't make it.....
