Re: Frozen ground equipment

I got mine from Minnesota trapline products. I think it's called the groundhog. It's a3 lb hammer with a welded flat piec of steel on the back. PLus at the other end of the handle it's cut open to make your dirt holes.
How ever when it gets that cold that the ground is frozen solid we switch to almost all haysets. No need to be bust'n butt digging frozen ground

A government that doesn't trust it's law abidding citizens to bear arms is unworthy of trust itself.
