Aren’t Groundhogs rodents?
Down here there are folk who eat most anything. Gators, crawfish, now the crawfish ain’t bad. Sweeter than shrimp, not as sweet as lobster. And really we eat some weird stuff. Last weekend we fried oysters.
There is a swamp rat called a Nutria, weighs about twenty lbs. They had a bounty on them at 5 bucks a head. The critters are an import that got loose in the waterways, and they are doing major damage to native plants.
They tried to promote recipes for eating them but, nah.
I’ve done the same, planted a part of the property in what we call deer feed. NO SHOOTING allowed. Helps to keep them out of the berry bushes.
