I'll be moving soon to MO and I just read the "hunting off-season" post on what to do when there is no hunting season open. I like sneaking around on groundhogs with a bow and wondered if MO has them? And if so, is it legal to bowhunt them? Thanks................................:cheers:

yes and sure you can but there not millions of them but i got 5-6 last year. mainly cause they dig in the feilds alot and there good practice with the 22-250 they really like fresh clover right after a hay cutting

good luck getting close enough with a bow

I've killed a few in West Va. They liked to burrow in holes either in the wide open fields or along the edge of woods. I've also had to redo a few bales of hay because the trailer shifted on a side of a hill when we ran over their holes! It also makes a good starting conversation topic with a farmer in the summer (if you know what I mean);)

Plenty of them in Missouri, and the season is open most of the year. It closes for a couple months due to turkey season, but other than that you're good to go. It'll be quite a challenge with a bow. :wave:

Wish we had more around here.Not enough to fool with hunting.Sure would like a mess of them.

My wife has never ate one.

I use .22 so I don't mess up too much meat.Seen Guys use High Powerd Rifles tear them up real bad.

Maybe it's mostly southern Mo, but I can't tell you how many times I've been busted by chipmunks while stalking deer and squirrels. That high-pitched chirp they do lets everyone know something is wrong. :stickfight:
