My and some of my family members just went out to see my another family member and spent the better part of 2 days praire dog hunting. This town however is about 12 hours away. I was wondering if anyone from minnesota knows of any good praire dog towns that they go to around this area

Prairie Dogs are found west of the Missouri River for the most part.

Headed out the second week of May to Watford City, ND.  College buddy's father is a high hat with Dept of Interior out there, so we'll have the run of ranch land, I'm told.  

Best part--rumor is we're taking a Citation jet out of Fargo--should be there in an hour...

Never tell an ammo whore you'll "fund" a shooting trip...

Yeah I've heard stories of how much ammo is in his home.  I just try to picture it and can't.  OH..I wish, I wish.....

I seriously would love to tag along on a prairie dog trip sometime.  Being I'm all new though, gas for the trip I could pick of, and depending on how long we'd be there room costs, but I really want to try this.  I have no idea what I need for License and such but it sounds like a blast.  Pardon the pun.

The last time I went to Montana mule deer hunting I stumbled on a dog town on BLM land. I went back after I got my deer and shot every shell I had. Ever see what a 300 weatherby does to a prarie dog?

Prairie dogging is the only time I've ever gotten tired of shooting.  Last time I went out near New England, ND.  2 of us burned out the barrels on TWO 10/22s.  We went through more than 2500 rounds of 22, 250 rounds of 30.06, plus a couple of hundred rounds of 22-250.


Most every shot was within 50 yards.

Aside from the ammo, make sure to pack shade (those 4 corner quick set awnings work really well), as the sun beats down hard on the plains.  Also - lots and lots of water and Gatorade.  Fill up 2 coolers with it.  Then pack a 3rd cooler.  Of course, it was late July last time I went!

I think Barnes and Noble sells "The Varmint Hunter" magazine.  Grab a copy - its full of good info.  Then you'll end up joining The Varmint Hunter's Association just to get the mag.
