Re: North Central Ohio Wood Chucks

I started shooting groundhogs with a 22-250 about 1980, I dont shoot as many of them now because the coyotes seem to have really hurt the population, I have turned the guns toward the crows. They are a challenging target and you only get one shot at them. I do however shoot the hogs at long distance I have a few of my rifles zeroed at 300 yards and dont often shoot any any closer than that. Last year I had a couple kills over 650 and a bunch of kills around the 500 yard mark. These distances are not what some of the expert marksmen on this forum would consider long range but I have fun doing it.

    Wow that is really impressive I need to get some lessons and some knowledge from you! I have hunted hogs for about 8 years, much more the last few years since my summers are free (i teach high school). I did use an MP-15 AR. But want to take my shooting to the next level. 500 yard shots that is pretty awesome.

    Do you reload? I assume you do using an 250 AI.

    Buzz,

    I'm from Shelby, OH. I have a lot of experience long range shooting. I also hunt a lot of ground hogs and big game. This year I harvested an antelope at 900 yards. A 6x7 bull elk at 1115 yards and a cow elk at 1750 yards. If you want to learn how to shoot long range I can help you. My wife is also a teacher she teaches 2 grade. Ill shoot you a pm when I get home I'm traveling today and trying to submit this post using my blackberry not sure if this is going to work or not.
