Re: Wood Chucks or Ground Hogs???

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

    "How much wood could a woodchuck chuck......................."
    Here in these parts (Maryland) we call 'em groundhogs.
