How to use groundhog in a sentence?

  1. Shawn Weeks:

    I have a good time and the farmers get rid of a pest. As you look at the soybean fields, you'll see what we call 'ice cream cones.' The point of the ice cream cone is where the groundhog's burrow is. He'll eat in a semicircle out from his burrow. Groundhogs love eating fresh soybeans coming out of the ground. i'm a hunter but if I don't eat it, I don't shoot it and I don't eat woodchuck.

  2. Mayor Paul Esser:

    It's Groundhog Day; I get it, i think we could make a change into something that is more appropriate.

  3. John Cornyn:

    I guess we’d better recharge our batteries. It’s like Groundhog Day. Over and over and over again, it’s maddening.

  4. James Ramsey:

    I am a little long in the tooth to be dressed up like some forest elf crawling around stalking 'hogs but it is just as fun as I remembered it,' i have a good time and the farmers get rid of a pest. As you look at the soybean fields, you'll see what we call 'ice cream cones.' The point of the ice cream cone is where the groundhog's burrow is. He'll eat in a semicircle out from his burrow. Groundhogs love eating fresh soybeans coming out of the ground.

  5. John Griffin:

    Someone sees one groundhog and they think that within two years, there will be a thousand, only half the groundhogs from any litter survive, and they disperse. They find other territories and they're on the move and they're a prey animal so it's rough out there for them. A lot of times, we get calls not because there's an actual conflict but because when someone sees a groundhog, they're like 'Oh, I've got a problem.'.
