Asking that here?
Kind of like a mouse asking where the cheese is!

Oh hell, it ain't that big a deal. Nearly any rancher will let you shoot critters, just ask--and besides, there is a lot of public land available with those critters--maybeso not like an alfalfa field , but not bad. Finding a critter patch isn't like finding an elk patch, knock on a few doors. You'll do fine.

Too bad you're not in Ohio. We're over run with the little SOB's at the moment, and I work 60+ hours a week.

None of the specific species mentioned... but a Woodchuck is as much a varmint as a rock chuck...;)

Aren't they the same basic critter, just a different variety (subspecie)?

Basically, yes. They are both under the marmot family or Marmota genus, in the rodent family Sciuridae . A woodchuck is the same as a groundhog. A rockchuck is a yellow bellied marmot. Rock chucks lives in the rocky mountains and the sieera nevada mtn range (thus the old western insult yellow belly).

Prairie dogs, ground squirrels, whistle pigs or "pot guts" are under the same family Sciuridae but a different genus of Cynomys.

The problem is the nick names often vary by the area and are often used to describe all the critters. Groundhogs whistle to alarm others of predators and are called whistle pigs. But whenever a person says whistle pig, most people think of prarie dogs, because they do the same thing.

Anyone know what hunting land sells for in Iowa? Have 80 acres, 20 +/- tillable, butts up against a river to back edge, other 60 acres all timber

Look for Crane Oregon just past burns. Stop in at Crane supply and ask. You will have a place to shoot rats. Alfalfa is just about too tall to shoot though. First cut is mid June and will be lots of shooting then. Just spent 10 days of the past 3 weeks shooting. What a frigging blast. Take lots of .17 HMR ammo and plan on shooting all day. Enjoy, R
