That sounds fun. What do you do with the chucks when you get them?

Once I saved two to barbeque on the grill, the younger
One wasn't bad, the older one was very tuff.
I have a summer long ground hog shoot set up on another site. Just for fun , but I found a site that has some very serious shooters, one guy posted his stats
For yr 2016 , he got something like 105 wood chucks
With a confirmed kill ,longest shot of 515 yards.
He didn't do that with open iron sites. That is some great shooting.
I also have a woodchuck target shoot , again for fun, at the NRA. Certified target, that me and another guy, are working out the details on,
He wants to due it more professional, than I would have.
But I am giving him first shot at it, will see how many sign up for his way, then I will do one my way , and see how many sign up for mine.
I started this to get people ,to get out to the range with throes old military rifles and have some fun, and give them a reason to shoot.
8mm Mauser's / 303 British/ 8x56Rs mannlicher, 30/40 krag, etc. Two categories iron sites and scoped.
He wants just iron sites, and everyone mails the targets
To him to score.
I Am just going to trust everyone, to post pictures of there targets, and believe there measurements.
Like I said, just want to give people a reason to get out
To the range, and have a friendly competition.
It's not to get you ready for Camp Perry.

If people want to cheat , they will, But they won't beat me . I can make a perfect 5, shot group, with my Dewalt
Battery Drill, at any yards, until my battery goes dead.

Added in 17 minutes 12 seconds later:
The farmers want the ground hogs gone. With there dens
And holes in the fields , many times a almost fully loaded hay wagon, has been dumped, and left with a broken axel, or snapped spindle because of wood chucks.
Many farmers smoke bomb the holes and fill them in.
