How do I keep them from eating my vegetables ?
Holly might be able to help you. She will lay by there hole for hours sometimes just waiting for them to stick there head out. I think she has gotten at least 3 so far.
Lucy has dispatched 5 this year and badly scared two others.
Have-a-heart traps are effective, baited with fresh lettuce.
They are vegatarins so eat them.
Groundhog is way too gamey for me.
Thanks I'll check into those traps.Maybe you should rent out Lucy I'd pay her !
Ya they're vegetarians but I don't eat meat.Just fish otherwise I'd stew em.Mother in law likes em but to cityfied now to butcher them.
Trap and relocate.
Just not here!
It's actually illegal to relocate critters around here... but, only if you get caught.
i trap still ,its hard not to break any laws here because

.22 will take care of them, Box trap will do it if not home much. They will mow veggies down left to their proclivities.
Not here, I don't want to rub it in though, move north. Freedom awaits for fine folks like you.
Slow'em down with a have no heart box trap and then an extra tall trash can full of water to give the whistle pig and the trap a good bath.
The girls find them entertaining for a few minutes before they go to sleep permanently
I'll add my .03 here.
They are rodents. They are destructive. I had one undermine a brick walkway and collapse a section of it almost causing injury. I know two of my relatives that were working in gardens and unknowingly cornered one and got charged. I have heard stories of farmers being thrown from tractors when the wheels hit tunnels. I have no love for them.
Catch with a trap, and then a well-placed powerful pellet rifle shot.
Catch with a trap. Run a shop vac hose off exhaust of vehicle to trap. Cover with tarp and a few bricks. A few minutes of idling and it goes to sleep.
This works if you can get vehicle close enough to hole.
Smoke bomb down hole, make sure second entry is covered too.
I have one evading me now. Canteloupe did not work. Lettuce on the menu now.
Brussels sprouts is good hog bait.
On your own property is legal in most states, otherwise it is illegal in most states. Trap and dispatch in Maine except on your own land. I use a .22lr when I can.
