    As for cooking them
    I normally for young of the year I cut them up and fry them
    The size she shot a cut them up and soak for 24 or so hours and then slow cook them

    As for this one
    We were 3/4 mile from the truck
    So the coyotes got a treat

    Funny I heard it as "Mongrelated Monkey Meat"

    Its an oldy for sure.
    I truly believe we need to get back to basics.

    Get right with the Lord.
    Get back to the land.
    Get back to thinking like our forefathers thought.


    May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you
    and give you His peace. Let all of the earth all of His creation worship and praise His name! Make His
    praise glorious!

    Yes, shot at one 40 years old with it sitting on a Mulberry limb. I misjudged the distance with Grandpa's ol 222 and grazed the bottom of said branch. That g-hog lived for another day.

    Can't count how many chucks I killed off fenceposts and large rocks both; they climb well.

    I've only tried to eat one. It was head shot with a 30-30 so the body wasn't messed up. Normally I'm shooting them with 22 CHeetah, 220 Swift or 22-250 so what's left isn't that appealing for a meal.

    As I was looking I saw her raise her Ruger MK2 and fire
    A few seconds later a mid sized male groundhog fell out of the tree

    Not sure if it was eating the mulberry's or the leaves
    But 40 grains of lead to the head took care of him for good

    Ruger MK2 5 1/2" bull barrel
    Millet 30 mm red dot
    CCI 40 gr HP 22 ammo

    Range 10 feet

    I guess we need to look UP for Groundhogs sometimes LOL

    John
    I've killed a many of them out of the apple trees at my barn in Minor Hill Tennessee. Like you I've not done an autopsy to find out what they are eating but I have concluded they can climb as good as a cat.
