You folks are all miss'n the big picture here. Become the top dog in the 
food pyramid in your neighborhood. Goes something like this:

Sun feeds plants (which you plant, water, nurture, etc.)

Plants feed groundhogs

Groundhogs feed YOU.

Thats right - you are a predator (it's in your evolutionary heritage, no 
sense denying it). Woodchucks (groundhogs) are just like miniature cows - 
all they do is sit around feasting on [your] greens ALL DAY LONG. Makes 
for mighty fine table fare. 

Skin the critter, removing any excess fat from the meat (and depending on 
how well your garden was growing, there might be quite a bit!), and cook 
them the same as you would a roast.

I prefer to roast ehm for a couple hours with potatoes, carrots, onions, 
celery, etc, etc. Add some seasoning and chile pepper to suit your taste. 
I usually stuff the chest cavity with sliced apples. There simply is not 
any finer eating to be had, and you'll have the satisfaction of partaking 
in your natural role in nature's grand scheme (and we ARE a part of it, 
despite what the peta, spca, hs, etc wackos want to tell us). 

Remember, you can't grill it 'til you kill it.


(and for those of you who aren't sure, I'm completely serious)
