I'm using 6 x 6's, 4 x 4's, 2 x 4's, wire mesh, plastic pallets, Unistrut, 4' x 10' SS sheet metal and plywood.
 

 

Couldn't find room for some duct tape too?

 

Wow you must have some wussie groundhogs in Jersey. I have yet to be able to finish one off with a 22. Doesn't seem to phase them.

 

You just ain't putting the bullet in the right place!!

The old dog I was blessed with when I was around 14yrs old could kill them in a heartbeat.  I saw him kill many while running without stopping.  He would be running like a train & as he would pass the groundhog, he'd grab them by the neck & whip them into the air maybe as high as 8 to 10'.  They'd be dead when they hit the ground from a broken neck.  Man I miss that old dog.  We simply called him "Doggy".

The last pic is a .22 hole in the screened in back porch. There were like 30 others. Till I replaced the screens. Most were confirmed Ground Hog kills. I used to shot from inside because they'd run if they heard the door open. I've been trapping them in a havaheart trap for the past few years. Then they go swimming in a 55 gallon drum of water. No worrying about shooting in the hood. And no blood splattered in the garage either.

And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote."

Thankfully my internal safe search filter is working and I can't share in your vision.

(Under the heading of stuff you can't unsee)

Come to the dark side.. It's fun over here...  :smilewink:

Wow you must have some wussie groundhogs in Jersey. I have yet to be able to finish one off with a 22. Doesn't seem to phase them. I've also had two havaheart traps DESTROYED by groundhogs. Mangled frames, broken welds, bent doors, etc. I don't even bother with box traps anymore because they've always escaped.
I just can't fathom how an animal with a head that is 3 or 4" across can fit thru a 1" opening between my shed and a concrete block under it at a full run without even slowing down. Freaks of nature. Satan's house pets.


Jim, you actually need to hit them with the .22 bullet, hitting the broad side of the barn next to them won't scare them to death !! Lol

If I can get close enough, my .27 air rifle with a pointed pellet will do them in as well. If I'm bored when it's hot out, I'll open the windows in the garage, throw out some bait and wait till they show up for lunch. I'm talking 10-15 yard shots.

John@Relible that is one classic movie !! Karl Spackler is the man.

Spent a few hours today with my son Tyler working on the wood rack, so we could get the trailer loaded with split wood unloaded and stacked. Need the trailer empty for a tractor pic up tomorrow.

Sorry, no pics today. But its coming along great.
