Re: Wood Chucks or Ground Hogs???

In new jersey I would say that wood chuck and groundhog are about a tie with whistle pig a distant third.
Bill Murray definitely says it's "Groundhog Day"

They are a ground squirrel and can climb trees but I have never seen them higher than about 6 feet.

edge.

Re: Wood Chucks or Ground Hogs???

I live in northern NJ, and it's about a tie here as to what they're called. Either ground hog or woodchuck seems to work. Although I seem to call them woodchucks more often than the other lol. I sure love shootin' em though, doesn't matter what you call them !

Lived in Mass and New Jersey and heard both names used. Woodchuck seems to be used more.
