Never tried prarie dog hunting, but sounds like a blast! Also sounds like you need one barrel per gun per trip to factor into the cost...

MN Hunter,
man your kids are lucky! AR15, 223 and a 22 at age 10 and 12?! I'm 16 and have to buy all my guns myself =\ so for now "all my guns" is a .308, 10/22 I built myself, and a browning bps 12ga. Really want to get myself an ar, but doubt I can afford to feed one. Lucky lucky kids!

Shoot straight,
Oliver

Maybe 150 max for one day. I usually get to go when everyone else has been shooting the dog towns for a month or two and their pretty flighty and drop at the sound of a shot so you spend some time waiting. Plus unlike my shooting buddy I'm more into the one shot one kill thing and he is into spray and pray. He probably averages 10 rounds for everyone of mine and I usually end up with the most hits. But I sure do enjoy my PD's. Better than shooting paper by far.

the best way to keep track, is to use a talley counter. My friends & I each have one, and its fun to see who talley's up the most!

In a 3 day trip to Wyoming, we killed over 1200 dogs, with 486 on my personal talley!

Yes my kids are very fortunate. Other kids got toys for birthdays and Christmas - my kids got guns. Also I am old enough to have bought the AR-15's when Regan and George senior were president. At that time they were inexpensive.

The tally counter is a great idea. Now that my boys are older it has become quite the contest as to who shoots more sod poodles. I just have to make sure they click only one time per kill.

Re: How many Prairie Dogs have you shot in one sitting?

Since I've only been out shooting p-dogs three times, I guess the most in one sitting meanig all shot with out moving from my position would be about 40. We usually all shoot from the same position so we watch each others kills in our scopes and thats almost as much fun as hitting them ourselves.

We keep track of kills by putting the empty brass back in your sell holder upside down for hits and right side up for misses.

I averaged just about 50% this past year. I also got three confirmed doubles which was very cool.

Question: with so many p-dogs being killed don't they kinda go extinct in those areas or do they reproduce like rats? (I watched a documentary several years ago and they said that no matter how many rats that get killed they just keep coming). Are p-dogs like that?
