Shhhhhhh… I’m Hunting Woodchucks

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if you shot it in the butt?

Rep. Andre Jacque and Sen. Tom Tiffany began circulating the bill for co-sponsors Thursday. The measure would remove woodchucks from the state’s protected species list and establish a hunting season for them from the beginning of July through the end of December with no bag limits. The legislators say the animal is abundant and they’ve heard complaints about woodchucks eating gardens and flowerbeds and causing damage by burrowing along sidewalks, driveways and building foundations.

We had a couple of woodchucks in our yard a few years ago. The local hawks took care of them.
