Here in N.E. PA. I've heard them called both, the good ole boys call it like it is ground hog and your more aaaa, sophisticated, fellows call them wood chucks. I call them dead when shot with my 45/70 and a 300 grain Sierra H.P. . Nice article, had a few chuckles . Thanks.
I like one shot kills where possible and prefer to do all my hunting before I shoot. Elmer Kieth
