Prairie Dog Hunting - South Dakota

DW and I are going to be traveling to SD in late September and one of the things I have always wanted to do is spend part of a day shooting prairie dogs. Does any forum members who live in SD have a need to have a few dogs taken off their property?

Hopefully you will find someone to take you up on your offer.. When we visited South Dakota last year, those ground squirrels were all over the place.

Prairie dogs

I'm not from SD, and don't know anyone there you could hunt on.
But am curious what caliber you hunt with? Brother and I made several trips out to western Ks. (Elkhart area) and did a lot of shooting with our 17HMRs. I always wanted to take a camper out there and stay in it and hunt. We stayed in motels at night and had to drive quite a few miles to shoot.
Since then our "source" has passed away, we also was told that a lot of the farmers like to let the hunters get the dogs down to small numbers and then they go in and gas them.
Funny thing, I had just come back from vacation trip in SD and had seen those big dogs right up by the road and stuff. Then I got back and went on our first dog hunt there in Ks. Let me tell ya, the Ks dogs are less than half the size of the SD dogs. The ones up there looked like wood chucks!
Good luck if you get to shoot....jdadoug.

I live in New Mexico and I shoot em all the time. I use a Henry rifle and .22 longs. 15 rounds down the tube and lots of cheap fun.

Cheap? I'll buy ALL the .22 longs you can find, anywhere!!! They're scarce as hen's teeth!

22's

Bandjcarm, you might want to check the local "House Hold Hazardous Waste Recycling Center" if you have on there....... I have the guy save all the ammo that is left off there at ours and you wouldn't believe what I haul home each time! Black powder by the can, 22's to 45-70's and more.......... shot gun shells of all gauges, lead shot, empty and loaded brass, you name it.
One thing you might run into as I have, some of that old ammo is, it can be dangerous! Somebody's sloppy hand loads could blow up on you!
My dad was shooting some old paper 12 gauges at blue rock and it didn't go off. but did seconds later as he was lowering the gun.
Not a good situation to say the least...... jdadoug

I`m not into hunting or shooting and have no problem with it. is it really that bad that they need to be shot? I watched a show years ago where they were hunting them as is explained here or sucking them out of the ground with a converted sewer cleaning truck. this is a serious/curious question! I wouldn`t think it was that bad, but I`ve only seen them in Wind Cave NP. so that is all I really no about them.
