I had a chance to get out to the cattle ranch I have permission to hunt prairie dogs on yesterday, and what a difference from a month ago. This time, they were out in good numbers. The wind was its usual blustery self, but even with that, it was a great day. If anyone would like to read a bit about it, and view a few video clips from the hunt, click on the link below. Thanks for looking.http://varmintair.ty...e-underway.html

That looks like some fun shooting there. I like that one taking a dirt nap in it's burrow. :drool: Some of those look pretty good size. That air rifle sure puts the hurt on them. :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow:

It was great fun. Got wind burned a little bit, but it was worth it. Heading back out on Sunday. It's supposed to be about 70 degrees, heading for 38 on Wednesday with the possibility of snow showers. Man, I love this place. Just like with California Ground Squirrels, the early birds all seem to be males so far. Some of the bigger ones are probably close to two pounds.

Nothing makes the stresses of life go away like a favorite air rifle, and a day in the field shooting vermin. B)

It's a great way to get away form it all, that's for sure. Hunting with airguns is very challenging and a ton of fun. :)

Thanks, these PCP rifles are capable of taking critters at some pretty surprising distances. I just posted a new thread about taking a prairie dog at 101 yards. If interested, you can view the story and video here: http://varmintair.ty...-101-yards.html

Some people would probably like to stick an arrow in some of those PDs. :huh:
