Only found one outfitter in SW Oklahoma who offers prairie dog hunts, and they are completely booked for September and October!!

I don't mind paying an outfitter to hunt when I am getting meat to eat, but I don't think I would pay an outfitter to just shoot varmints that the farmers WANT to get rid of. Just something about that.

I am told by some friends that if I head out towards Mud Butte that I can probably find some farmers that will welcome me to lower the numbers on their land.

I have shot Pdogs south of the mp170 exit on I-90. There is a KOA right there and an 1890's frontier Town tourist feature.
From there cross south of I-90, turn back east and then turn south on Cedar Butte Rd. Once down into the river bottom of White River either go right and up a ways to a hardscrabble looking farmstead and ask around there. Or you can keep going south and take pot shots from the fence line at em.

You will need a SD varmint permit, I think it was $20.

I have shot in this area two different time in June and they were thick in a lot of places. Used my 6mm, .222 and 22-250 on shots out past 600 yards.

Best shooting I had was in this area. Dogs left, right and center as far out as you wanted to shoot.

That sounds like fun! Do you handload so the rounds are sub-sonic at 600 yards?

I have chronographed my 55gr 22-250 loads at 3600 fps so they are still probably cooking right along all the way out there.

I don't load them to go 600 yds - lol I don't think I could hit a small target like that much beyond 400 yds. Very few people could.

That's why the guys I've read about make them sub sonic. The bullet just goes pfffftt if they miss, so the prairie dog isn't spooked.
I wish I could do this in Korea...
