    Haveing ben unjustly fired from my last job(of 11 years)I found a replacement in Casper Wyoming.
    Gona be a little busy with the moveing but hope to get into some longrange hunting when I get settled in.
    Tradeing the flat corn and bean fields of S Minnesota for the Casper area aught to make it a little interesting?Anybody have any info about the area that would help this misplaced prairie dog assin /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I just came back from Casper. The only thing there that was more plentifull than pronghorns were the P-dogs. Actually, there was also about a billion rabbits running all over the highways @ night. Four big jackrabbits fell victim to my rental car the other night.

    Mach V, if you don't mind my asking what will you be working at in Casper? I was there the first week of June looking for a job. I liked it there.

    They call me a welder these days but I went to school to be a dairy farmer/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif Welding is steadier pay and a lot less work and hassle.The oil and coal fields are booming and so is Casper,I hope it continues.I start work on the 3rd October building dump boxes for the big coal haulers.

    Not sure how to take your post /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif Dispite what the bunny huggers would have you believe the prairie dog is alive and thriveing.Shot a lot of dogs in Montana,Wyoming,Colorado,Kansas,Nebraska,North and South Dakota.They sure aint hard to find and most are a lot closer than the Shirly basin to wherever you are from?

    Glad to hear you got the job,stressful being out of work I know.
    I have told a few people where i praire dog hunt ,now that is where they praire dog hunt.
    I'm working in nw florida right now and am going to bed right now because i'm leaving for casper in the morning to pd hunt.
    In the east if you mention a hunting/fishing spot you'll wish you hadn't.I know casper isn't anything like that,here you just have to keep stuff under your hat.
    I bet you'll love living there i know i would.I'm planning a move to colorado in about 1 1/2 yrs----Take care bud&gt;&gt;MIKE
