Prairie Dogs

Hey guys, looking for a little info on prairie dogs. I want to go this year (2011) and looking for any recommendations on guides. I am in Kansas and do not mind traveling from Texas to north Dakota.

Any info would be great

Re: Prairie Dogs

When I lived in Hutch we would go to some private land west of Hutchinson, about 40 miles or so.
Just asked for permission. Small town 300-400 yard max distances.
I don't have anymore info than that.
There is also a nice pd town just north of Panhandle, TX (used to be anyway).
Again private land, just asked permission.
I do know of a guide near Devil's Tower (WY).
I can look up his info if you would like.
He has access to a number of towns, and I have shot at one of them near his lodge.

They are all over out in Colorado as well. There is different terrain in colorado. Heck I think I've even seen them in FT. Carson Area ;) My wife and I used to live in Kansas. Its about 8hrs from Junction City area to Colorado Springs. Just for reference.

Re: Prairie Dogs

A_GameHog - do you have know any ranchers that welcome P Dog killing in Central/Eastern Washington? I use to have a location out in Paulina, but the ranch sold and I am out of a spot. I am looking for a closer spot to travel than Montana!
THanks

Fetch. Me a d a friend went a few years back to south Dakota. It was near Pierre. On the lower brule Indian reservation. I think the license was around $105 and the land owner only charged $20 for the week. And then we went to another property and we were told to just go ahead and hunt, no charge. We had dogs all day long. We had shots up to and including 700+yds. Had a blast. Good luck!

Re: Prairie Dogs

Trout-and-Salmon:

I live 45 minutes from Christmas Valley, they have 1,000's of acres of Alfalfa which has the Squeaks by the thousands. PM me for more info... I hunted in Nebraska, So Dakota,Colorado, Utah last year and have a lot of spots. The ranchers never denied me access when I found the dogs. Same old stuff, find a diner, open up with a few friendly faces and the next thing you know it's paydirt!

Yeah I was retired last year also. Just starting to settle in here again. Don't tell anyone here but shooting SQUEAKS is more fun than P-Dogs! more shots longer shots etc...harder they are smaller...

For those who have no clue where to find P-dogs let me post this again.. This is only for SD all the states that have P-Dogs have similar maps available...Tree hugging vegans make nice maps..
