Does anyone know a good way to eradicate groundhogs?  Angry

I have about a 1/4 mile segment which at last count had about 50 groundhog holes which i have called Groundhogville.
Looking for any suggestions.

22-250 oughta do it. ; )

They are near hibernation time and if you can seal them in their holes.  They make a poison gas bomb you toss down their holes.  Coyotes get most of them here but I have one in the barn that is going to get gassed.

Besides making leg breaker holes they weaken levies.  Muskrats damage my pond so they just get trapped.  It is harder to trap a groundhog.
