Have you been Prairie dogs hunting yet This year.
IF so let us know how you did an Post some Pic,s of your hunt.
Well I kilt a few a course....My round count hasnt ben real high(maybe 50 rounds an afternoon)but the hit ratio is up over 80%
Let us know what state you hunted in.
Just Wyoming so far....LOL the dogs are a ½mile from the house [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
How many friends went with you?
So far most of my shooting has ben by myself but school is about out so my Daughter will no doubt wana get out and about with dad again.
Had a couple of guys from Wisc come out last week,they claimed it was the best shooting they have had in 20 years, they had hot 22-250 barrels for two days [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
Let us know us how long was the Prairie dogs shots 300 yards ,500 yards or 100 yards
Most of the shooting so far this year has ben 100-300 yards but the range will get farther as my shoulder heals and the dogs get educated.
what kind of Rifle did you use ?
Ruger 77/22 with a Tasco 3-9 mildot scope=great for the real close ones and outa the truck.It tipped one over just past 200 yards to with a couple of walking shots.I like the rimfires cause they dont scare the dogs so bad...if you start shooting an area with the 22 ir 17HMR seams like you get more shots than if you start with a 204 or 223.
After you get all you can reach with the rimfire then a different kind of fun begins.The 243 shooting 55Noslers being my favorite.It shoots flat and can reach to 500 with relative ease.The best part is the <font color="red">Red-Mist </font>
Effect it has on the dogs!
Couple of weeks ago when the pups where first out I had the 204 out for its virgin run.It did a great job of wacking pups but the 32 Vmax leaves a little to be desired as far as damage and airtime on a full grown dog but the 40s did alright.
