Body Count '14 - #6

Caught another on sneakin' around the shed at home while I was lookin' out the window of the breakfast nook. His mad dash back to the shed as I stepped out onto the porch with the ol' 12-gauge proved to be a futile effort.

Edit: Just whiffed on another one. Little bastards are everywhere today. Hopefully I'll get another chance at that one...


  1. This may be a stupid question, but if you'll pardon my ignorance, is there good eating in a groundhog? They look pretty big.

  2. Stupid questions are always welcome here.

    Some of the old-timers talk about havin' ate 'em before, but they tell me they ain't too good. The younger, smaller hogs were apparently better eatin'.

    Groundhogs and starlings are the only critters I'll shoot that I won't eat. I just ain't that hard up for wild meat.

  3. Thanks for the reply, down here in the southern hemisphere we don't have any critters like groundhogs. Notwithstanding, stupid questions are somewhat of a speciality of mine.
