Starting to see lots of woodchucks around the farm I work on.Shot one each day for the last three days on my lunchbreak.All with handguns,I made a 152 yard shot one one with my new 223 barrel for my Encore(dont get too bent out of shape Bushy,I was using iron sights,no scope.Does that make it count as a handgun?HaHa). Glad to see them out and about,gives me something to shoot at!

Hey roklok, thats some good shootin. We don't have any of them little hogs around here to shoot but do have some Prairie Dogs. Since our winter was so mild this year have been out at least once a week keeping them thinned down. What makes it really great is that no one else is out and the snakes are still holed up. A few pics, my hunting buddy and a hunted one. Hope ya get a bunch more--tr

Yep the gophers will be out here soon as well and I've got over 4000 rounds of 22 lr ammo and I'm ready to go. Good shooting guys, have fun. Smile

I'd love to hunt prairie dogs but they are scarce in PA,someday hopefully I will get a chance to. Nice pictures.Shot another chuck today with the Encore,184 yards(no BS, I laser ranged it).I was planning on scoping the 12" 223 barrel but am having success with the excellent TC sights,probably stick with them.

Ground hawg is good eats! dress it like any game animal and quarter it, soak it in salt water for a few hours and put some Olive oil in a pressure cooker, brown the meat, putting on some salt and pepper, alittle Mrs Dash, when all meat is browned good put in the nesessary water seal up the pressure cooker, cook at 15 psi for 50 minutes and WOW! good grub! Very Happy Serve with mashed taters and corn, and a tall cold beer.
