Too late to get it to a taxidermist?

Got this little guy yesterday afternoon. That brings me to 7 so far this year, all in my back yard. There is also an infrequent visitor from a neighbor’s yard that I’m keeping an eye out for. He/she will likely be #8.

Nice job, attila. You must have a rather large back yard to support in excess of 8 ground hogs

I finally broke my dry spell by making my rounds tonight in addition to my usually early morning patrol. I'd been after this guy for a while and already missed him three times. Twice from just over 200 yards out and once from just over 100 yards after I had dropped my rifle and obviously knocked zero off. Tonight I saw him poking his head up just above the grassy rise from a laser ranged 176 yards. I called Eika to heal, set up my stool and shooting sticks. Took a peak through the scope, which I left zeroed at 100 yards, no wind to speak of, zoomed to 12X, adjusted my set up so I could rest my elbows on my knees, and in about 90 seconds he popped up again. I let the cross hairs rest on the top of his head as I exhaled, bang.

Since I couldn't see him any more I could tell if I connected. Eika took off after the shot and watching her pause and point I knew I got him.

Eika just wanted to eat him up. Turns out the shot connected just below the ear. Bedding the Savage BMAG seems to have paid off.
