I've got a fairly large ground hog/Woodchuck living under my shed. It's actually starting to wear a path between my shed and my neighbors shed. The problem is I live in the Wyoming City limits and no gun fire is allowed (and I have one a-hole back yard neighbor that would call the cops at the sound of a fire cracker). Anyone got a trap laying around they could loan me or some other sure fire method to get rid of this thing? Gun with a silencer perhaps?? :evil:

A steel trap will last your lifetime if stored inside. Make the investment, other chucks will find your shed in the future. If you would rather give a couple of dogs some work, you'll need a terrier and most any other dog. Send the terrier under the shed, have the other dog standing by between your shed & the neighbors.
If this were a skunk, I would suggest a live trap, bait, small rug to cover trap, & drown.

Please don't use the anti- freeze method. You don't need a poisoned ground hog flopping around in your neighbors yard. Buy a live trap and take care of it that way.

if hes going under the shed, buy yourself a 220 conibear from gander mountain or a local trapping store and and set the 220 right at the hole going under the shed. Will kill him dead, you dont want to be live trapping and relocating woodchucks, they are a nuicense and it will become someone elses problem whether it be a farmer or a neighbor down the road that you dont like.

crossbow would work quiet and deadly. I used a 12 gauge on 2, live trap on another 2. tree hugger neighbor complained about the 12 gauge told her I would live trap if I could release them under her deck:evilsmile
