    Ok I was Spraying weed Killer along a Fence. There was a Ground Hog laying in the shade.

    Looked like Dogs might of bit him on the back but other wise ok. Just seemed he was just happy laying there if he was up running around I would go ahead and butcher him.

    Think he might be sick, I can walk right up to him? Going to see if he is still there this evening.

    I'd offer it to your neighbor. Lot's of things I'd rather eat than a sick groundhog.

    You need a couple nice carp to go along with it and you can have a regular Hill Billy Surf & Turf dinner. :eek::

    I think Sandals would be interested. :wave:

    Yea I'm thinking it is sick. Thought maybe it was just laying in the shade.

    My wife said it might have gotten Rat Poison.

    :D The Big Grin isn't eating it.

    Doesn't CJ need a groundhog to add to his coot sausage?

    If you sprayed weed killer near him, that will probably be the death knell.

    That would probably save its life, but cause it to grow a second head and three tails...........:D

    Just went out he is gone. If I see him again I figure he is ok.

    What is this about eating Coots I've ate several especially in Louisiana with family in late Fall??

    :D The Big Grin is a Hillbilly not a Coon A.

    If I had to deal with everything you have to deal with I would be sucking the poison out of that groundhog like a Popsicle.

    I think that ground hog was sizing you up. He probably just changed his mind about gaining your confidence and then killing you. :D

    Nothing better than smoked groundhog.

    Been hunting them hard the last few days.

    No luck so far.
