Well, I'll tell you what. It's very hard to find a place to hunt prairie dogs. I was raised in Western Kansas, and we had prairie dogs all over the place. Ranchers and farmers would invite us to drive out to their fields a shoot the little critters.NC RIDER13 said:Is there anyone that knows where me and my father and maybe 2 friends could go and shoot some?
They are fun to shoot. Do you go out and pop them?Clayslayer said:I don't know about irradicated. Poisons work very well on those little bastards but there's still about 980 Billion of them to shoot out there. Most destructive creature on the planet. Will absolutely destroy a good pasture in no time whatsoever....
I'm from South Dakota and have a lot of family in this state that farm and/or ranch so there's never a shortage of "prarie rats" to shoot.
I think that shooting prairie dogs is the most fun shooting of all. Also I've never shot anything other than a .22 rimfire.Clayslayer said:Oh yes. I've exploded hundreds of the little bastards back home. It's pretty fun with a .22 believe it or not. They get all "dramatic" when you hit them.
My .270 is my weapon of choice for them though. Blows them to pieces.
Around where I live the envirnmentalists genuflect to them. They will destroy a pasture in pretty short order. Where I was raised (Western Kansas) farmers/ranchers would invite us to come out and shoot time. We'd drive our cars onto the fields, shut down the motors and shoot away to our hearts content.Clayslayer said:Aren't they fun!! You don't even feel bad when you kill them! I just giggle as their guts splatter in all directions......I hate em but they are fun to shoot.
