More Groundhogs
As long as the groundhog stories are still going I decided to
throw in my two cents.
A few years ago while my son Mark was running a sheep farm in Gap
Mills, West Virginia, he naturally had a vegetable garden and occasionally
shot the groundhogs which were raiding it. He was rather surprised
therefore when one early summer day, a pickup truck with three men and four
dogs in the back, appeared and they asked if they could come in and shoot
groundhogs. He quickly advised them that he took care of same and had
already shot 6 in two months, in addition to the fact that he was only a
caretaker and the owners might not appreciate his allowing them to come in
and possibly shoot some sheep or cows. They continued to talk and finally
persuaded him to allow their hunt and directed them to an approximately
four acre alfalfa field. They were gone only a few minutes before he heard
shots begin ringing out. This continued for slightly under one hour when
the truck reappeared at the door and the men stopped to thank him for
allowing their hunting. He looked into the back of the truck and was told
that he was looking at 56 dead groundhogs which would be frozen and used as
dog food.
