Oh, Look: It's Giant Rat Day Again

Good morning and happy Giant Rat Day, everyone.


Oh my God, I'm so full. That was some gooood garbage. Mmm.

We have one of these things living under our forsythia. He has absorbed volleys of small lead pellets to apparently no ill effect. Unless you consider an excruciatingly heightened situational awareness, an ill effect. Which I certainly do, since it makes it impossible to draw a bead on the fat bastard anymore.

He has grown so sensitive to sound and movement that he now runs when he hears planes overhead.



Here's my prediction: You now have fleas.

Anyway, around my neck of the woods, we don't call these rats groundhogs. We refer to them as 'woodchucks,' or simply, 'get the .22, he's back.'

Anyway, enjoy your Rat Day. An early Spring is coming! In Florida.

Bonus shooting Video: Pigeons.

Thanks to Scott.

13 Called them woodchucks where I grew up as well. My grandmother had a dog that took care of them. She lived on a farm, and every summer we would visit about every two weeks. The dog would display its trophies by the side of the driveway, usually a new one every two weeks, sometimes two. By the end of the summer we could count about a dozen of them. He was a good dog.

I'm surprised that PETA hasn't come out in support of the poor, defenseless skeet (naked, of course). From what I've heard, even the president likes to shoot them. Those harmless creatures don't even have wings, and must be loaded into an inhumane launching device for the amusement of people.

Love the Skeet, Don't shoot them!

40 The thing about prairie dogs is, besides the disease-carrying fleas and the holes in the ground that injure livestock, any area they occupy quickly becomes denuded of the grasses which hold the soil together- so a lot of topsoil is lost to the elements

73 Depends upon the type of lunge. I would guess.

Human type lunge is easy to visualize. Abrupt movement to grab or grapple.

Now there is horse lunge. Where the horse is controlled remotely by a trainer using various methods. There is no rider on the horse which moves around the trainer in a circle.

So if any of the rumours of lunge and Larry King involve Sarah Jessica Parker, believe the later. Other wise the former.

81 Back when I was a wee lad, one spring one of those bastards buried under my granny's house (who lived next door to me) and chewed threw the 220v line going to her air conditioner and was promptly electrocuted. Two months later, the air conditioner repairman made the grisly discovery as to what was causing the stench.

From then on, if we saw a burrow going under her house we put a rabbit trap in it. My job was to check the traps daily and dispatch any varmints with my .22. Things went well for a while, and a couple of groundhogs met their maker at the business end of my Marlin. One day though, we caught the mother of all groundhogs. 15+ shots to the body just made this big bitch angry. She actually turned around and growled at me after I ran out of ammo.

Even though it was more likely to elicit a visit from the one cop my town had, I knew I was going to need a bigger gun. I went back to the house and grabbed my Browning Auto 5 twelve gauge and went back to finish the job. One shot, two shots, the critter was mortally wounded but still not finished until finally she (or he, hell I don't know) turned around in the hole to growl at me again and I was able to get a head shot that finished the poor bugger off.

And that my friends is why we need high capacity magazines. You never know how many times you're going to have to shoot a PCP crazed groundhog.

He's shooting the much more technically difficult "Ground Skeet". It took the range operators a long time to get him to understand that skeet are traditionally shot while in the air.

198 Personally, I think skeet could become an exciting spectator sport if the skeets shot back.

Also, TFG looks like he's not used to wrapping his right hand around that large of an object. He's probably used to smaller diameters.

I have had some success with killin' off ground hogs. If you can get close enough to 'em with a sturdy shovel, ya bonk the hell out of 'em on the head. That stuns 'em a little but they'll still be alive. So repeat, two, three, four times. This kind of abuse would kill the average human being immediately. But not the average groundhog. So keep poundin' away while you picture the damage he'll do to your garden if he survives.

He's gonna take a day or two to die, but die he will. As far as shootin' 'em, if you can tree 'em it makes it a little easier, a little .177 varmit gun will do the job. I'm not comfortable with firing into the air with anything larger then that -- even with no neighbors even remotely close.

I'm still thinking about that thing that someone posted late yesterday...about Barky 'waiving' the Child Soldiers Prevention Act, with a stroke of his pen.

[link in my nic]

Bush signed that Law...to outlaw sending arms to countries that use Child Soldiers.

Barky waived it...and allowed it for, get this, Lybia, South Sudan, Yemen and Congo.

This happened back in October.
Which makes me wonder if it didn't have something to do with Benghazi.

201 Is spelling 'Lybia' like that an inside joke or something? Thing is I've seen other sites spelling it that way as well.

202 Cleaning weaponry today - 10/22 and .17 hmr. Ground squirrels will be out in a couple of weeks. Nasty little buggers that dig in the horse pasture and vineyards, denude areas, and draw in badgers who did BIGGER holes. Anyway, a half mile away, tucked in the foothills outside Boise, is a Planned Community filled to the gunwales with transplanted Californians. Who, in good weather, jog or bike their lycra-clad butts past my place. When things work out just right, I'll be hunkered down near the road waiting to get a head shot on a squirrel, and a gaggle of them will traipse by. They won't notice me, but DO notice when I cut loose a round. The collective flinch is glorious. I've had a few fly into the road ditch, assuming they were under fire.

Man, I love Spring.

Maybe just a common typo?
Which is what it was in my case...

It's spelled...Libya...of course.

My 12 year old sheepdog with RA would disagree with that.
My wife generally concurs with a second opinion.
Posted by: jwb7605 (Let It Burn) at February 02, 2013 11:40 AM (Qxe/p)If you mean by predicting what the daily weather is or tomorrow's is going to be. Otherwise your dog isn't fortelling the future 6 weeks from now.The free hint here is that this is a sham ginned up to bring dollars and publicity to some podunk berg up where, if in 6 weeks it ain't freezing, it's considered 'Spring'.

206 LauraW being too cool to fucking link the one thing that made groundhog day something more than a provincial curiosity. I hate that sorta swagger. you know, the "I was there" before it got popular schtick.

214 I have one of the little bastards wintering under my back lawn. SOB tunneled all over the place.

I've had all winter to get a good sight bead and distance measurement.

Six more weeks of winter may very well add six weeks of breathing air for him.

That's if the GSD doesn't get him first.

215 You wouldn't believe how hard it is to ring a groundhog's neck. A cement block does the job...it was pretty graphic and I'm still not sure how I convinced myself to do it. Lesson learned: be a better shot.
