There are a few places that are not conducive to Conibear traps. We have a new puppy so I don't want to use them close to the house. Also, there are a few holes that are in HUGE Poison Ivy patches. So the one live trap will also get a work-out.

You'll want to watch your puppy as well. I've both seen and heard about dogs going after groundhogs all the way into the burrow and faring badly as a groundhog will defend a burrow. Worst one was at a dog event where a dog got its jugular bitten and died within seconds. Others required surgery on paws and heads.
