Help a Gal--Need Prairie Dog/Varmint Trip Info
I'm new to the forum, have read many prior posts, and still would appreciate any advice you can offer. I am trying to plan a surprise prairie dog/coyote hunt out west for my fiancee and myself, as this is on our "bucket list." We are both avid shooters, reloaders, and hunters, but have never done the prairie-doggin' thing before. We are considering SD, ND, MT, or WY. We'd like to spend 3-4 days shooting.
As we'll be traveling a great distance, we don't want to spend the time scouting and trying to find free public land; thus, I'd love to get some tips on general locations to consider, outfitters/guides, semi-guided options, and any other input you can offer. Cost is always a factor, but I realize you get what you pay for. I hate to use the word romantic in conjunction with varmint hunting, but we don't want to end up staying in a bunk house with a bunch of other guys. Since we don't get to take many trips together, we'd like to have the option of staying in decent (clean) accommodations and a few dining options would be nice. Short of calling local DNR agents, picking guides and locations is like finding a needle in a haystack, so any suggestions or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
