Hello;
I have a side yard/incipient wood lot/blackberry patch.
I mow the grass 2-3 times a season, in a token effort against ticks and to keep access open.

There are groundhogs nearby.
Any ideas on how to attract a groundhog?  There is an nice sandy bank that looks like groundhog heaven.
For various reasons I am not in a position for goats or rabbits to eat the grass, but a groundhog might do the trick.
cheers, doug

Plants young fruit trees, especially mulberries, and the lil buggers will be in your yard to eat them in no time

In my neck of the woods, I normally see them in mowed areas, along roads. It seems like they feed at the edge of open areas more than in the middle of brambles/bushes.

I walk my dogs around the edge of my property daily to help keep groundhogs out of my yard, so making sure to keep dogs out of the place you want them would also help.

 
I child proofed my house but they still get in. Distract them with this tiny ad:
