Thanks very much. We're still waiting and praying. I'm still hoping that in three months we have good news so we can make the trip north.

Thanks very much. It seems all we do is cry one moment and pray the next. Of course we believe that the will of God will be done. If you care to Alli has a page at CaringBridge / alli_gator_callender / guestbook

She is an awesome little girl.

These dogs have been shot at for so many years that they've become smart. I would say that the majority of the dog towns are "educated" and you will have to shoot at least 200 yds most of the time, with 300 to 500 yd shots being most common. Of course, in most of this area a person could shoot out as far as they wish.

You may be able to find some uneducated towns, but most are "long range"

Most of the landowners allow prarie dog shooting, some might charge a small trespass fee however. Nearly all of them (charge or not) have people coming in on a fairly regular basis during the spring/summer months. This makes for some long range shooting.
Hello: would your father have owned a ranch i think southwest of newcastle if so i have hunted dogs there years ago.i believe the dog town was on the left going up the drive to the ranch house.

Just in case SBruce doesn't see your question---Yes, their ranch is a nice spread quite a ways southwest of Newcastle over on the Cheyenne River Road as you go toward the Rochelle Hills.
