Because then, you might have thought this thread was about cider and gotten all excited, only to be sorely dissapointed.
Nobody would ever mistake whistlepig for a tasty draughty refreshment.



Or would they? Whistlepig Ale?
Does kind of have a ring.

Groundhog population here moderately steady. I have a few farmers that I aid in controlling damage to soybean crops. Used to shoot some of the commercial apple orchards in the Shenandoah Valley of Va.

My main pig gun has been an older .220 Swift, but this year will be trying the Savage .17 HMR.

Wills- I am a country boy, and have eaten groundhog- but it would not be my first choice. And the .220 does not leave a lot to cook.

With wolf populations and coyote populations up, I'm not surprised BG dips in woodchuck and prairie dog populations in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.

Whistle Pigs in this area are a small verity of ground squirrel that are only out and about 4 to 5 months each year.
The same name appears to apply to other critters in other parts of the county.
No, we don't eat them, but they can make for a fun day shooting.

Are you really this daft, or are you attempting to make a joke?

Leave Wills alone. He is king of cryptic posts. He's just being Wills. If you don't like his posts, put him on ignore.
