It is used in a different sense here [1]. I'm not sure exactly what definition is in use at this link.

The quote is:
“Now that Richard Pombo is getting a chance to spend more time plunking varmints back at his ranch,”
so the sense is “to strike”, in this context with connotations of “on the head, underfoot”. Compare whack (as in whack-a-mole), bop (bop on the head), etc. If this is not an idiosyncratic usage, it warrants another definition – thanks!
