    Good shooting. I'm surprised that they let you get so close to them.

    Thanks everyone!!

    Calbarry,

    I'm can't say I'm surprised anymore….being my longest shot was at 50 yds, two at 35 yds but the rest were inside 25 yds.   I'd like to get more 50 yd shots on them but I'll probably have to set those up to happen that way.  Like I'll need to walk away from the woodchucks after I spot them so close to me….LOL!!!

    Moby,

    I'm using the Motorola Z2 Force with an App called Open Camera.  I've settled on recording at 1080p and 120fps.  Then I use Windows Movie Maker for editing.  It's a very basic editor.

    Nice shooting the smaller ones are this springs young. They grow pretty quick, don't know how your time schedule works but what is very effective is to scout out the holes. You will usually find them as you did in dense vegetation, or hidden under or by structure. The bot flies also will give away their location in vegetation, and often they will conceal their holes with addition vegetation, and debris. After a day of foraging they return home. I make the rounds on holes, giving 5-10 minutes of attention to each and move hole to hole. this is done about an hour before dusk. On one piece of nursery the workers pointed my attention to Mulberry trees, it was a feast as they ate both the leaves and berries. Looking up was the last thing I would have thought. I enjoy your vids, and applaud your video graphic commitment, I would have grabbed the gun before the camera.

    I've never heard of a "s" load of them.. I've heave of a "s" house of them and a "s" ton of them.. I'm thinking that a "s" load somewhere in between that number..

    guod,

    I need higher magnification binoculars for sure.  Mine are only 10x and are barely good enough to see a woodchuck at 200 yards unless he's moving.

    I've scouted out some holes but whenever I check on them, there is no activity.  I'd like to get a 200+ yard shot on one with my 6.5 Creedmoor.

    I also don't mind walking fence lines with the air rifle. 🙂

    I was strapped for time while caring for my mom, and by accident I found once the hole is discovered they will return at or near dusk. During the day they are out and foraging.
