Woodchuck Hunting

So on the family farm and a couple other properties I was taking over 80 in summer. Number drafted down and I haven't been seeing many anymore. My savage model 12 varmint rifle was in partial retirement. There was a chuck digging up the barn yard around every building. The old varmint and I still got it. Picture setup to not be so graphic with the giant hole in its head.

Use to hunt them all the time in my youth. I have a pre 1980 Remington 700 varmint special in 22-250. I had so farms I would hunt south of Nunda one had a field that was over a mile long and a half mile wide. One evening I shot 23 chucks out of that field.

Biggest field I had to hunt was around 500 yards wide, but well over 1500 yrds long.  My farthest shot on a chuck was a verified ranged at 502yrds.  I could see the "red mist" in the scope.

Off memory I think I'm 8.75 MOA in elevation at 500 yards. Just over so I'd add another click and send it.
