They can be found throughout the Western United States and Canada. Rock chucks will inhabit grassland, forests, deserts, and mountainous areas, which describe much of Utah State. Rock chuck is a nickname given to the yellow-bellied marmot and woodchucks are better known as groundhogs. Identification of Rock Chucks & Groundhogs Groundhogs are usually about 18 to 24 inches long and have a tail that is between 7 and 10 inches long. I like to find chucks in the and beyond range to give me a little challenge. This past year I took my furthest rock chuck across a huge canyon at yards using my Model , WSSM. My Model shooting the Winchester 55g Ballistic Tip bullets at fps puts new meaning to flat shooting.
