Live Trapping Woodchuck

8 posts in this topic

Anyone ever try to live trap a woodchuck. I have been asked to live trap this critter and I've never even thought of trying this before. Personally, I woould just shott this critter but, thats not an option here. Would a guy use some veggies for bait? Carrots and lettuce, maybe some ranch dressing? Any suggestions?

We had a latino worker at a tree farm I worked at and he used his refried beans with great success. We tried quite a few different configurations of vegetables with absolutely no success.

I used to live trap woodchucks at a driving range when I was a kid. I couldn't remember what we used, but I called a buddy and he instantly said that whole peanuts work good.

i guess if you used refried beans you would know if he is around or not by smelling his tunnels!!

One of the "hi-power" air guns might do the trick. Gamo has one that shoots up to 1600 fps with their pellets. Problem is, the cost of the gun is about $400.
