I would love to do that, but won't they die close to my own house and smell funny? If I was on the farm and having this problem. I wouldn't care out there, but I sure don't want a groundhog dieing on the neighbors driveway!  :o
Hey KCK what you need to do is go to your local gun shop and get some .22 CB caps. Its a 22 short but with no powder, the bullet is powered by the primer. Its extremely quite and the hogs will runn back to there hole and die. Instant burial. Also works great on cats, when we lived in town the cat ladie had 40 cats, needless to say when we moved she had 2.

Well, I guess I left out the part about me not doing the whole gun thing. I am the most accident prone person, so I don't need anything else that might complicate things! LOL. I am not even allowed to use a knife to cut much anymore after an accident requiring stitches. So, I am going to find a safer for me alternative! Or, maybe I could just farm them? We did find some stuff at Lowes last year, but can't remember what it is. Guess I will have to wonder the store for an hour or so (clapping)
PS- don't google groundhog control, either. Their methods are all how to "deter them to other locations!"

I know for a fact that fly bait and coke works wonders on coons! If you decide to go ahead and raise groundhogs, maybe let the chokecherries grow as well, then you can tell everyone that you farm hogs and fruit! (lol)
