It's unfortunate, but I really don't think you can release him back to where he came from. The best you can do for him now is to block off a corner of your yard, and loosen up the soil to about 2 feet, than put at least 2 more feet of leaves on top of that to give him a place to hibernate. Leave a pan of water out for him, If you can't find any leaf litter now as it might be too soon to find fallen leaves, just pull them off a tree, and they will eventually dry up. If he is used to hibernating he may get sick if doesn't get a change to.
