**UPDATE ON 2011 SEASON**

More dogs, more hunters. We are back into full booking, taking new clients and slamming the dogs in full force once again. The price of ammo is high, but at least it is easily available. Rain has been our biggest nemesis in 2011. It was one of our wettest springs, and the prairie dogs benefited from the cold, cloudy days. We are going to shove our season back a couple of weeks, just to get out of the rainy season more. We can still get pretty good snows in mid-May, so our season for 2012 will open on May 25 and run until late June. This should aleviate most of our rain days, and since nobody is shooting our dog towns but us, there really is no need to start any earlier.

 

**UPDATE ON 2010 SEASON**

We are finding more dog towns and the plague is starting to let up. We began booking new clients this year on a limited basis. The drawback to new towns is that we may have to drive upto an hour and 15 minutes to get to some of these remote dog towns, but boy is it worth it once we get there. Some of these towns have not been shot in years. We have literally sat in one spot and shot all day without having to move to a different location.

**UPDATE ON 2009 SEASON**

The plague has been slamming some of our dog towns. We are slowing down our hunts to no new clients, just repeats are all that we are booking. We are having to drive a little further to find towns that haven't been hit by the plague. Its interesting how there are some pockets of plentiful dogs, and then just across the valley is a town that is plagued out to nothing. Also interesting, is some of the dog towns that we have hit the hardest with our hunters, are the ones that are surviving the plague the best. We catch a lot of heat over shooting these little "innocent" critters, but actually it benefits the dog towns in a management sense. By keeping the numbers in check through shooting, the populations of dogs remain pretty stable and are less susceptible to diseases that can wipe out a whole town. Let's give some credit to hunters!
