I saw a thread a couple days ago with video of exploding prarie dogs. I can't seem to find it now.. Rifles used.. 17 HMR, 223, and 22-250.. Video was taken in North Dakota and Montana.. I'm just looking for the link to the website to order. Anyone?? Thanks in advance, Chris

OK I have my Flame GEAR on...what is the point of this. Killing an animal for NO reason - No food, no fur, just leave it for the ants to eat, makes no sence to me. Flame away!

Prairie dogs eat grass. Cattle eat grass, guess who loses. Large prairie dog towns consume all the grass that they cover, usually many acres. Domesticated dogs like to eat dead prairie dogs. Prairie dog hunting is fun. Any more questions?

Pest control. Have you seen what those things do to the prairies? Cattle cannot walk without breaking legs, horses etc.

Come visit some parts of Montana sometime. Maybe you'll understand. Can you say INFESTATION!! infest >verb (of insects or organisms) be present in large numbers, typically so as to cause damage or disease. -DERIVATIVES infestation >noun. -ORIGIN originally in the sense 'torment, harass': from Latin infestare 'assail'.

No flame here, you're issue is legit. One popular alternative to blasting the little buggers is pesticides. These are relatively indiscrimate and can sometimes potentially leave some heavy duty collateral damage on other species. Therefore it makes sense to me to let varmint hunters hone their shooting skills while at the same time reducing populations of pests in a most selective way. Way safer than pesticides in the long run (but may not be sufficient to control the pests in some locales). Kevin

Do some research. Search google for coyotes and prarie dogs. You will find the answer your looking for. I certainly dont kill them (coyotes) for fun.

What do you do with a coyote when your done shooting it? Are they good eatin? do you make a hat out of the fur?

I am speaking for myself only. I do not touch the bastard unless I have to. They are nasty and normally infested with fleas and ticks. If they are to close to our residence, I throw a rope around the neck and drag it to the creek. If its back beyond the house, I let the buzzards get it. The rancher used to pay us for the ears, but he passed away.

there used to be millions of buffalo roaming the plains freely. seems to me that they roamed in the same areas that prarie dogs built their towns. i never heard that buffalo were always tripping in prarie dog holes. i'm sure it happened, but it can't really be that big of a problem. or the buffalo numbers wouldn't have gotten so large. i'm not against prarie dog hunting. just don't think i would participate in it. to each his own...

Sounds like the "Bear vs. Tiger" thread a while back.

When I attended my son's graduation from basic training at Fort Sill last year, we took a side trip to Wichita Mountain Wildlife Preserve outside of Lawton, Oklahoma. They have a bunch of buffalo, longhorn cattle, and prairie dogs. They have yearly buffalo hunts to thin the heard. Don't know if they allow any other hunting. It was the first time I have been around prairie dogs, and the ones we saw were semi-domesticated from years of being fed by tourists. There must have been hundreds of the little furballs. They came right up to us, although they didn't allow themsleves to be touched. In large numbers I can see where they could be a problem for ranchers and farmers. Panzer Out
