    Any tips for "live" trapping groundhogs?

    My neighbor and I have a ground hog making holes under some trees of hers. The dirty thing never gives me a clean shot, and conventional trapping is out because she's got lots of cats and critters running around. I've never used a live trap before, but I'd like to in this case because I don't want to harm any of her cats especially. Do any of you have any suggestions of what to put in the live trap that works well for groundhogs? I was thinking about putting it 10' from his hole and throwing lettuce in there, but I'm sure there's a better way to do it than that.

    I have had luck using a paper plate slathered in peanut butter and then large marshmallows stuck in the PB. Doesn't seem to attract the cats as bad. Will pull in the possums to. Good luck.
    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.

    I have a shed that groundhogs like to try to live under. I can't just shoot it whenever I see it because of houses, so I have to get it in a certain area. I'll set out tomatoes and other stuff in the area I need it to be, set up my motion detector, and wait for the alarm. When the alarm goes off, I can see what it is, and shoot it if it's the groundhog.

    Even if using a live trap, check it a couple times a day.
    Once in, the little dude will try to root his way out and can chew up his nose.
    Even if your gonna shoot him, no sense in letting him get torn up before.

    Planning on dropping off the trapped animal somewhere?

    Cantaloupe and apples for bait. Close the trap at night if you don't want coons. You can drop him by the hacienda down in Brown County. Coyotes gotta eat too.
    Couple of mole killing smoke bombs in his hole and plug every place that smoke comes out works too.

    Gallon of gas down a garden hose as far down as you can push it then wait 2 minutes and throw a match at the hole is always exciting.
