Seems like they were more popular as table fare back in the 50's and 60's. Anybody got a good recipe? I kill plenty of them every year, always wanted to see if Im missing out.

You can bake them or put in a crock pot. There is also a market for there skins also. put up like a coyote on a wood board for a coon with the tail slit open but leave the tail bone in.

Your missing out! I love groundhogs. You can cut them in to fryer pieces, roll them in flour, S&P and brown them in oil in the skillet. Then bake them @350 for 40 or so minutes depending on the size. You can also pressure cook them till almost done, and then fry them. Sometimes I leave them whole and put in the slow cooker like a roast, taters, carrots, onions and such. One of my favs is to either pressure cook them or slow cook them and shred the meat off the bone and add your favorite BBQ sauce. Pulled GH sandwiches. People often scoff at me for eating groundhogs but GH's are a tasty critter.


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

They're super good. Like the best grass fed beef ever. You can do most anything with them you'd do with beef. For Halloween one year I made general tso's beef with black rice, and everybody loved it.

Used to know a guy that canned them. They were good. He would give us canned bear and groundhog. You would only know which by the small rib bones of the groundhog.

Where do you sell them coydog?


Trapping is easy you say? You try getting your target animal to step in a 3 inch area of its whole territory.

I love to slow cook, shed, and add barbecue. I take a cooler with ice in it with me and get the guts out of them then on ice.

Several years ago when I was a bachelor we had a pot luck dinner at work and it was made mandatory that everybody bring a dish or dessert. My dish was barbecue ground hog. I remember everybody lapping it up. Later I revealed that it was barbecue ground hog. It was priceless. I was never asked to bring a potluck dish again. I was hoping for an encore because I was going to use the same recipe, but change it up with Racoon meat.

You can come to my house. I take out between 20 and 30 a year. I have a few under the shop right now that I'll have to set the connies for. I can make you fat on groundhog.

They are more fun to hunt than eat .The reason they where table fare years ago was people where much poorer .They did not waste ammo or food . During the depression days and later wasting anything was never considered
