Unbelievable!
« on: July 12, 2019, 09:05:25 PM »
Just after a late lunch, about 2:30, I looked out towards the barn and saw something fuzzy by the corner of the barn. Got the binoculars out and now I could see it was a woodchuck, with its head just outside the opening at the base of the barn.  While watching it, it suddenly ducked completely under the barn.  I had been staining our deck so I had more work to do before stopping.  I had planned to stop working at 5 pm, but by the time I was done putting stuff away and cleaning up, it was slightly past 5.  Washing my hands at the kitchen sink, I spotted the chuck by the barn, pretty much in the same spot where I shot the other one on 7/11.  My time was limited cuz we were meeting another couple for dinner at 6 pm, but I couldn't just pass this opportunity.  Grabbed the Axis, and headed out the garage door to my shooting spot.  The chuck was oblivious to what was about to happened.  Got settled down, centered the crosshairs and squeezed the trigger.  it was DRT.  Caught it on the left shoulder and exit was a gaping hole on the right side, just behind the ribs.  This one had ticks on it, too.  I never would have thought I would see and shoot another woodchuck so soon.

Rumor has it that a large migrant caravan of undocumented chucks is on the march towards Louie's place.  Hope he has a good stockpile of ammo on hand . . .
