    No such thing in California. If you want to shoot sod poodles you will have to go out of state.

    No Prairie Dogs that I know of but there used to be a lot of 13 Line Ground Squirrels in Southern Cal. They lived in towns like PDs.

    There is some great ground squirrel shooting near Goose Lake north of Alturas. Or, you can come to the sagerat capitol of the world, Crane, Oregon. GS's are really out already.

    For ground squirrels go to Modoc Co, NE Cali. Just knock on ranchers doors to introduce yourself. I have a card printed with my info. to present to the rancher. Rarely will you be turned down.
