dog hunting provides
continuous shooting on private land where there will be thousands of prairie dogs
that rarely see a hunter. The ranches where we hunt these prairie dogs are remote.
So even though the drive might be a little farther, it is well worth the action
you will experience.
approach the edge of a prairie dog town and set up and shoot for an hour or two
or until the prairie dogs start getting scarce, then we pull up and drive over
the hill and continue prairie dog hunting.
In some places, we can shoot all day from the same hill top without moving.
for practicing your long range shooting, prairie dog hunting allows you to shoot
at different distances as often as you like. The farther out you shoot, the less
likely the dogs are to know what's going on, so they will stand there and let
you shoot at them until you hit them or get too close for comfort! The close shots
might be the most fun, but after you get tired of the carnage, its also fun to
try shots over 1,000 yards.
40-50 acre prairie dog towns and also 1000 acre plus prairie
The advantage of the smaller towns is that we can hunt from town to town so the
prairie dog hunting remains diverse.
accommodations will be the Rockin' 7 log lodge with exquisite views of Glendo
Lake and Laramie Peak. Portable
shooting benches, sandbags, and guide are provided--along with the cold drinks.
We run a short season--May 25--June 25. This is the optimum time for maximum shooting,
and also the best weather wise. Days are usually 70-90 degrees this time of year
and occasionally a thunder storm in the afternoon.
This is not a party fishing boat type hunt. You will only be hunting with members of your party, and if you want, we can break the size of your group down to 2-3 hunters per group. Most of our groups prefer to shoot together because its a lot of fun to watch your buddies and talk about the shots.
We are now offering a dove hunt/prairie dog hunt in September. It will be the
same price as our standard prairie dog hunt, but you can shoot your limit of Doves
in the morning--15 doves, and then shoot prairie dogs the rest of the day (no
limit on those!) Our dove season opens September 1 and runs through September
10, and we usually have them by the thousands during this time--not like Argentina, but
still a lot of fun. You can buy the bird licenses over the counter, so throw in
your shotgun along with your .223 and add some variety to the prairie dog hunt!
wanted to take this opportunity to tell you that our trip couldn't have been better!
On the hunts Shawn and Darrin treated Holly as if she were their own child and
provided her with an outstanding experience. Joel and Dan also went out of their
way to make us feel welcome and at home. It was a fantastic Father - Daughter
experience that I will cherish the rest of my life. A big "Thank You" to everyone,
because you are the ones that made it happen!" Dan W.|
