    Prarie Dog Hunts in the Midwest?

    A friend of mine and I were thinking about doing this. Looks like it could be a lot of fun. There appears to be some places in South Dakota that specialize in this kind of thing. Anyone ever do this?

    I did it 25 years ago

    Flew into Rapid city then hunted in eastern Wyoming

    I enjoyed every second of it

      I have done a couple in South Dakota, using a Remington 40XB in 22-250, a whole lot of fun, more shooting in dog towns than ammo.
      stay alive, carry a 45

        How is .223 suited for this purpose? I'd want to bring my CZ 527 Varmint in .223.

          My friend had a 223 AR with a great scope and 30 round mags, he got about 25 a day, but that depends on where you go.

            I was shooting dogs out to 500 yards with my 700vs in 223

            Also had my 700vs in 22-250 and 40XB in 6mm Rem

            Bring lots of ammo. I shipped my ammo out a few days before I left.

                That means he ran out of ammo

                  If you have never been out there and done it before you should go with a guide.

                  It's nothing like hunting on the east coast.

                  Ranches are measured in square miles not acres.

                  Plan to NOT be there close to Sturgis bike rally.

                  I went 3rd week of May. Based out of Newcastle Wyoming and stayed at the Sundance motel.

                      I would have thought groundhogs would have already been underground hibernating for winter by now. Something tells me your neighbors might object if I show up with my rifle.

                        What's a typical distance that you're shooting them at?

                          Anywhere from 50ft to as far as you can see.

                          600-800 yards plus
