Prairie dogs are out

went out this morning and shot p-dogs. Had a good morning. Son's girl friend shot one at 700 yds with her 25 gibbs. We had a 5- 8 mph wind most of the day. We killed out to 400yds pretty consistantly. Lots of adults out playing. Good day. He had a 204, and I was shooting 22-250 akly.

    We were out the other day here in CO. We try not to take to many of them though this time of year. We enjoy clearing a mound of youngs ones to much when May rolls around. Always fun in the P-Dog fields.

    We were on a couple of ranches. Both want them gone. I don't believe you can wipe out a town just by shooting though. One man told me if I run out he had more towns he'd get me on. Try try try...

    I was looking over our Colorado prairie dog closure dates and was surprised to see closed from March 1 to June 15. Unless I am mistaken we used to be the same as Utah, closed April 1 to June 15.

    The season dates for public property in CO seem to change about every year. The Blues in CO want to give those pergo P-Dogs a change . I hunt private property that has no dates so it's something I have never had to worry about.

    Does anyone know of some P-dog towns in the Pawnee Grassland area in Colorado?
