Default ground hogs

i am planing to do some ground hog hunting this summer and was wondering what to do with them afteri have some...i know some people use them as fox or yote bait... i do not think u can sell the fur for money or can u?... or do u just pitch them? i do not think i will pitch them i might make a bait pile and see if i can get coyotes and fox in close..

Young groundhog is edible, and actually is quite good. Try some on the BBQ. Treat it the same way as rabbit or squirrel.

yes dont throw away the younger ones they are very good eating,you can batter them and fry them just like chicken they are good and not near as tough as squirrel.The older ones need to be pressure cooked or boiled and made into barbeque they are good also.I dont start killing them till the little ones leave the den though,it would be a shame for them to starve to death without mom,and they make good targets and good eating when they move out!

We usually toss them out in a bare spot in the field, and the next day buzzards come and clean them up. Natures vacuum cleaners.

you can chop them up and add some skunk urine like a drop or two and if you want to you can add a few more stuff but then use it for fox and coyote bait when trapping

I use the liver for channel catfish bait. And I tie wire the carcass to fence posts and go back the next morning to try and catch a coyote. Tom.
