I posted this in the Gen Forum but no one answered it..

Im looking to get a group of friends together to go Prairie Dog hunting in either Nebraska or South Dakota. Maybe some of you can answer some questions I have:

-When is the best time of the year to hunt prairie poodles?

-How easy is it to find a farmer/rancher who will let you hunt for free/minimal cost? And do you know of any.

-What else should I know before/while I plan this trip?

i too am looking to hunt P Dogs in So Dakota..some info in So Dakota hometown forums..here's some links i have found:

Prairie Dogs in So Dakota
http://www.sdgfp.info/Wildlife/hunting/PrairieDog.htm

Cheyenne River Sioux..SoDakota
http://crstgfp.com/

Rosebud Sioux..So Dakota
http://rstgfp.net/

best hunting appears to be on Reservations..i have not checked them all out tho...if you find more links, please post them

edit: P Dogs in Kansas require landowner's permission, because KS says there are no P Dogs on public lands (no clue if that is correct or not) ... i was directed to Mr. Darrel West, Sherman County Noxious Weed Director (they spray private lands for infestations) Tel (785) 899-4870 ... i only tried to contact him once, and he was not there

I was in southern NE in early spring '03 and they were hatchin little ones. Only a couple ever came out to play. Got real boring fast. Am told they are usually very active there and cousin gets lots of shooting to help the rancher clean up his pasture. I am finally going in a week or two. I will see how they are again unless some locals tell me it is a bad time. That would have been very helpful info last time.

Farmers 9 times out of 10 will let you shoot, unless their some hippie freak. Just ask before you shoot and they should have no problems. Summer. Anytime. Spring summer and fall the little rats are out.
