      I hunted a lot of groundhogs for the family spaghetti sauce. The thing with groundhogs is that you MUST kill them instantly with one shot, because if they're just wounded they will run down down their hole and die there where you can't recover them, and I preferred to eat everything I shot. So I learned to drill them through the head at 100 yards with a ten-power scope.

      Of course, the groundhogs were not shooting back . . . . .

      I've always been a very good shot. My dad was an Airborne Paratrooper, and I could usually out-shoot him.
