We have a resident woodchuck on our land, quite close to the house. I’ve stopped trying to take shots at it. It has reached the status of “mystical” at this point for bullets go through it like a ghost. It built a far reaching tunnel system with holes 300 feet apart. It removed a massive skunk I had buried in one of them. Above all, it respected our garden for 2 years and doesn’t seem interested in making new holes. At this point I have nothing but respect and admiration left for the little guy. I just hope we don’t come to regret it, a raid on the garden would void a lot of our efforts.
