Piccy; Groundhog - Wikipedia
Ya I was told by an old timer they make the ground unstable with their borrowing.He also warned they can be very aggressive so don't think they're so cute and fuzzy.They're not !
They are only legal for underwater sets here in PA . I think/know I lost several barn cats because my neighbors were doing it.
Yep... that’s why you gots to know what your doing... cause it doesn’t discriminate... on what it closes on. That’s why with groundhogs, they are placed in the entrance and exit holes... and on coons I use marshmallows... targeted placement is the key...
Unfortunately my barn cats use the holes for shelter down in the woods. I know this because I watched them using them while in my deer stand.
One method I’ve used a few times successfully is to pour a cup of gas in one hole, and then start a small fire at the other entrance. Fumes are pulled through the burrow, there is a semi-thud, and that’s it.
Double bubble gum placed around the hole works well sometimes. They eat it but cannot pass it or bring it up.
I did not have any around the garden last year but one each year for the previous 2. They both feasted on lead offered from the bedroom window. Both times the quickest thing I could grab was a deer slug and it did the job well.
Not acceptable. I found this under the wood stack today.I'll get on it this weekend. It needs a weed whackin' too.
Suppressed .300 blackout, can shoot 3 or 4 before they figure out your killing their friends
put a bodygrip trap over that hole and it will be done
Its' tight under there. I have a smoke bomb.
No kidding unclefess. Can't have much fun around here taking care of things.
Dang, it just dawned on me what stripped two rows of brussel sprouts clean to the stems. A pair plus litter mates under the stacks. No conibears with ours and neighbors pets running around. The 22 sounds appealing. Need to get the box traps out, baited with brussel sprouts.

Welcome to the club. Bunch of great folks on here, sharing knowledge and humor.
How did you come across this method and why does it work only sometimes ?
Holly dispatched one today.
It went under my car, so I had to assist in getting to leave the safety of the car, but she dispatched it quite quickly.
Did have to wash the side of the car though.
She got treats of course.
Guess maybe a bad choice of words. It has worked every time I have disbursed it around their hole. Can't remember where I heard of this originally.
I use Mr. Marlin it has worked reliably for me. I know of another ingestion method that always works but it ain't nice in polite company and gets one banned on most forums.
