I'm glad someone suggested this one, becuase I just noticed the other day that the ground hog, a.k.a., pasture poodle, whistle pig (my favorite lol) or woodchuck, is protected in this state. I think this is one animal that proves SOME of the gentlemans in Mad town don't get into the field much. And have never knocked their kidneys down to their knee caps hitting a hole in a field on a tractor ever. These lil guys are what got me into varmint hunting back (a while) when I was a kid, when I had a farmer that would pay me $10 per every one that I shot off his fields, and brought up to the farm to show him. I'm hoping with the mild winters over the past years the the population grows enough to have them open it up to even a limited season.
