Anyone ever see one go this high in a tree?










In this next pic if you look at the trunk where it splits you'll see just how high this thing went.The little brown spot going up the right side is the groundhog.

That's cool!
The only one I ever saw up a tree was about 12 feet.

So do they climb trees to avoid danger? Never saw one in a tree before, but then again, never really looked in a tree for one. lol

I've seen them in trees before, I've even seen one sunning itself about 10ft. up on a powerline tower. I've never seen one as high as the one in your pic. Probably once in a lifetime right there.

I have seen them in trees a few times, but never that high. A couple of years ago I was fishing and heard something climbing a tree behind me, I thought it would be a squirrel. Turned out to be a 'chuck, and it climbed right out to end of the branches and started munching leaves. I guess I always thought they only climbed trees to avoid danger until I saw that. Cool pics BTW...
