    ha ha thanks but i was thinking of some thing a little more specific than that. If all i wanted was to kill them than all i got ta do is drive down the rode.:D I was hoping some one cud point me to a farmer or a rancher or some state ground. Something with a 1000 yds or more.

    Have not shot dogs in that area. If I was going to I'd stop by the BLM and National forest departments to pick up maps of the area. While there they may point you to a couple of spots....Unless they are like the wench at the Casper BLM office [​IMG] It also pays to stop by the local feed /supply stores or the local cafe's!
    Anyway armed with the BLM maps you can start looking for BLM and/or state land that lays in the river/creek bottoms and work out from there.
    If your stepping on pine needles your in the wrong place:D

    Pick an area and then use Google earth, you can see the PDog towns (the big ones) on the satelite images.

    One thing to check into is the possibility of needing a small game license. In Wyoming they specifically exclude PD's from being regulated. It would be very unfortunate if you got popped for a no license violation.
    It is worth checking into.
