Greetings all! I am being dragged to Minnesota Oct 20ish-30ish with my girlfriend for a stinkin' wedding. Not wanting to waste all of my time watching her and her friends do girl crap, I figured I would drive a few hours into ND and try my luck at some prairie dogs. I am from TN and have never been in ND before. Any help at all would be great as to where to hunt, etc. Thanks!

Not sure how much luck you'll have that time of year. spring/summer seems to be the best. Most of the prairie dogs are out west, so if you're in MN, you're going to be in for a drive. I would try near Medora or Watford City. Those are the places I've always gone.

All the prairie dog hunting that I know of in ND is west river.

Check out the Fryburg area, I was just up there doing some long range shooting. There was a town about a 1/4 mile from us and I could here them yiping away. We didn't shoot at them all my loads were for testing. I wish I brought more ammo.

If it happens to be an Indian Summer type of day they could very well be out.

last year i shot 3 prairie dogs in the 3rd weekend of november. with snow on the ground. unseasonably warm day. its still boggles me that i found them while i was deer hunting. but i usually stop seeing them about this time. the pastures tend to get too tall unless they are hayed.
