Ohio Groundhog

Well, not near as far as some of you shoot, but a personal best for me at 535 yards tonight with my Sig SSG 3000. The groundhogs have been hammering the new bean fields that are just starting to sprout, and tonight I hit it just right. They were coming out of the wood work. I had some issues at 490 yards for some reason with my dope, still not sure what was going on, but I continued to miss some small ones that were coming in and out of their holes.

Later on this one came out and I checked the wind one more time, dialed the elevation in, held a mil off for wind and squeezed off. He never moved. Man I love varmint hunting.

Re: Ohio Groundhog

Great job. Nothing better than smacking a 'hog from several football fields away. What's that Sig chambered in?

Thanks.

lewwetzel the Sig is chambered in .308. It has proven to be a very reliable platform for taking out varmints and banging steel. I really enjoy it.

Re: Ohio Groundhog

I enjoy varmint hunting and it is the only opportunity for rifle hunting in Ohio. 535 on a groundhog is very good shooting. Keep it up. My opportunities are diminishing with each day as the beans become cover.
