Paint the prairie red!

...that is if you find enough ammo.

We saw a guy selling ammo in a parking lot of a kwikie mart. He had paper signs along the highway through town and was set up on a folding table under an awning. I think it was in Bonner's Ferry ID.

Farmers hate them, they kill many cattle who step in their holes and break their legs.

Plus, shooting them is a ton of fun, legal, moral, helpful, and worthwhile.

I saw a program on the new Wild Kingdom a few months ago. Turns out that prairie dogs have a very complex language which I guess means that their chirp probably means more than "ugggh" when they die. If I had a cool hunting story I'd post that but this is about the best you'll get from me.

Prairie dogs may have the most complex language

Thanks for the responses, I am still hoping to find someone in that area that is looking for someone to lessen the number of dogs on their property or a friends. If they are close, less than 100 yds, I would shoot them with a Weatherby in .22LR using stingers. If they are further away I would probably use my Ruger #1 in 25-06. Getting ammunition is not a huge problem for me the 25-06 I reload myself and I work at Basspro so I can get the .22 pretty easily.

Our #2 grand-daughter is a student at the University of Montana, working on a bachelor's degree in Wildlife Management. Her summer job is travelling around Montana, capturing prairie dogs, vaccinating them and putting radio tracking tags on them.

Not sure what the overall program is about.

This might help you out a little; I'm going to Oklahoma in October, and am looking for a place to shoot prairie dogs there. I looked up "Hunting Prairie Dogs" on line, and found several outfitters who offer hunts. I thought they were expensive ($200 per day), but I guess it's easier than looking in a place your not familiar with. You might google it and see what comes up.
