Re: How many Prairie Dogs have you shot in one sitting?
if you get tired of just saying we got X no. of dogs, then its time to start metering out shells. by that i mean, hand everyone the same no of shells, and see who has the hot hand. for instance "I got 40 dogs with 50 shots ! that keeps the competition going and not just total no.. In e. co. mothers day is the magic time for the pups to first appear. When they first come out, believe me they are lil bowling pins to shoot at. The rimfire lot is the best to use when they first show up. It is not unusual to get 2 x a time cause they are lined up. three are possible, but a rare one. then when ya get one and the nurse runs over to help, ya get a chance @ her. Yes and sometimes she tries to cart him off to the hospital. Theres all kind of games you can play. We have shot for years with a counter and it is a real joy to count with sincerity on no.s.. Our best was 327 in a four hr. period. we ran out of shells. that was a spring time run when the pups first came out, and they were to dumb to come in out of the rain so to speak. if your shootin the high speed centerfires, do yourself a favor and give ur barrel a chance to cool-off, cause you sure can ruin a good gun. taint worth it!! jc
