I know its not a predaor, but here lately been more focused on groundhogs in my yard than yote hunting. They are tearing my yard up. Anyone know any tips to bring them out of hiding?

I've only had luck when sneaking up on them.
They seem to like to loiter in the same area, in the sun.

If you know where they feed, just sit in a chair 20 or so yards away with your favorite rifle or shotgun. Just be ready and Wait.....I've killed several this year....

Yep, unless your gonna trap them, laying in wait is pretty much your only option.

Unless you can get between them and their hole, then you can chase them down and kill them with a stick. \:D

It is funny to see, but it CAN be done. \:D

If you can get some smoke bombs like they sell during the 4th of July you can light a couple of them then throw them into the hole and that will do to things, let you know how many holes and where they are and will flush them out if their in there so be ready.

Use of smoke or chemicals to run an animal from a den is illegal.
