    We are done with our first 3 rows of corn. We have 3 more that will be ready in a day or two. Niether my wife or I had ever had an outside dog. Three years ago we were "adopted" by a Merle Australian Shepard that walked up to the farm. Whereas we had nothing but problems with coons before that, Dingo has a perfect record with the good harvest seasons. So we highly reocmmend a four-legged friend to keep your corn safe.

    HaHa! I read my post again and can see your point. Sorry, can't help you with a groundhog recipe. I will suggest that you BBQ it (hides the taste) and drink a 6-pack of beer before eating it (puts you in the proper frame of mind) :D
