Now that fox season is over time to start after those woodchucks. Has anyone seen any out yet? Also are there and woodchuck hunts like there are fox and coyote hunts?

Yes, I have seen several out and about.
"Predators are either active & feeding, semi-active & callable, or utterly inactive & then practically speaking, no call is needed; we're just taking our guns for a walk. We can & should get used to it, & follow their leed cuz they just ain't eager nor apt to follow our’s any time soon!

I Haven't started yet.  I figure if I shoot mom now,  that's less young ones to shoot later.
