    non-heat question--Chuck Shaw

    Can anyone tell me how to get rid of woodchucks (i know most of the jokes). I cant shoot them, because of the residental neighborhood, I have tried bombs, I have tried traps, and I have tried flooding them out. I have also sprinkled dried blood in the garden, and also fox urine (tough to get them to pee into jars). Those work, until I water or we get rain. I am looking for a permanant solution. Short of complete deforestation.

    It is a steady and slow job of trapping them. Good luck

    Live trapped the buggers

    in one we made from scratch. Just for fun, we took the rascals over to a local ambulance chasers home for release into his astoundingly beautiful garden. Nothing like unleashing one pest upon another(G). Poetic justice, we termed the catch/release program!

    works best...

    if you have a tractor or similar vehicle with a manual choke..... pull that succker on just so the motor keeps running and make LOTS of smoke!!!!!
    Then stand at the other hole till the sucker comes out all groggy and beat him with a hammer....one good blow to the head will knock em stiff!!!!

    Man I miss those days!!!!!

    Got rid of one today Hydronically

    Found a wood chuck and his holes in our veggy garden yesterday. This morning (after reading pumping way) I hooked my pool vacuum hose to my filter's backwash pipe. While pumping away from the pool, at 70 GPM, and the hose in one hole, I stood at the other hole with a pitchfork. The water started coming out the hole, and soon the woodchuck was swimming to get out. So, how do you cook one of these suckers?
