Woodchucks are found mostly in the Northeast and Midwest, inhabiting burrows in orchards, fields, sloping woodlands — and maybe under your porch. The burrows reach deep into the ground and usually have more than one exit. The woodchuck's main goal in summer is to eat as much as possible to store enough fat to carry it through the winter in hibernation. These herbivores enjoy clover and alfalfa, along with many young garden plants such as peas, beans, cole crops and lettuce. They'll also feed on tree fruits and ripening melons.
