PD help, South Dakota Rosebud/Pine Ridge

Planning another trip out to shoot some dogs pretty soon and I just found out one of the best ranches i have visited in the past is absent any substantial prairie dogs. Between poison and the drought he told me it wouldnt be worth even driving out to his place for a few years now.
Anybody have any leads or guidance in the southern area of eastern Pine Ridge or western Rosebud reservations?

According to my contact in the Pine Ridge area PD's are few and far between in those areas, for the reasons you listed. I think most of it is due to plague, she don't use poison she owns 45000 acres on the Res. and said her PD's are almost non-existent.... Good Luck!

Just got back from that area on June 20 shooting was poor - moderate (worst in 15yrs.). Lot's of little guys and lot's of tall green grass. They said the Tail Rattlers were out in force. Never saw any. Maybe 200 dogs in 2 1/2 days.

Just got back from Gregory, which is a bit NE of that area. Grass was high as well, rattlers were out, and I would not call it a target rich environment.

At least you got to spend some time with some of the best barrel makers out there. Dan Gave me a run down of your trip. he said he only shot about 150 rounds during the whole trip.

Dan is a good man.. And so are the others that were with us. Our intention was not to shoot the place up, but to spend time with our friends and have some fun shooting at those little critters far, far away. We managed to accomplish that mission, but it would have been nice to have a few more targets...
Good thing is....I don't have to load for a few rifles for a good bit of time.
