I was out on the back deck this morning enjoying some coffee, when I spotted a wood chuck in the woods, ??? with the wind gusting and raining I was a little surprised, he duct in his hole for 15 minutes or so, I got him when he came out. A 95 yard shot through the woods.

I was pretty excited. Aint nothing better than snipping a chuck drinking coffee on your back porch.

I have one under my shed, but I don't think squatting deserves a death sentence

I shoot them whenever I can. Use a .22 long rifle. Got one last year and saw another one in the tree line but never got a shot and haven't seen him this year yet. I also pick off the coons in the farmers fields.

Looks like a hoot. What gun/scope combos are you using and what seems to work better?

Top gun is a 22-250 stock Remington 700 . This is the tenth year out here for it. Scope is a Nitrex . Time for a new barrel . Bottom rifle is a Defiance action 243 with Brux barrel. It has a newer 3-18 Leupold.
