    Anybody else tune up on prairie dogs?

    Not like The ones in Wyoming size wise but a blast. A great way to spend a Friday with the old man. Now I have to do some more loading.

    About 2 months ago I went out to a couple of the PD towns I usually shoot and the best one was gone! Not a dog to be seen. Been back a couple of times and still the same. I called the farmer who gives me permission to shoot and he said the plague got um! He was happy, but not me. Guess I'll have to do some more looking.

    Yeah I know what you mean, I killed one at 469 this trip and missed one at 40. I was racing my dad to him and well, I squeezed off the first shot but premature.

    In my area I love to chase them with archery equipment. Great practice for judging distance and focusing on shot routine. If you can stick one at 40-50-60 yards then you are doing pretty well!

    We don;t have them in our area, but shooting hogs across open pastures year-round is about as close an alternative as we've got.

    Where do you love. My father and I really want to go down to Cali somewhere and harvest a couple hogs. A dream of mine to take one with a bow.
