The owner of the ranch that I shot prairie dogs on last week asked me to thin out the number of dogs around one of his stock ponds. I spent a couple hours and eliminated over 60 of the pests, including a half dozen with beach front condos like this one.http://imageevent.co...=...amp;s=0&z=2

Thanks, I love the sound of a pellet smacking into a rodent skull.

No, he just went straight down the hole in the middle of the mound. The lens compresses the scene and makes it look like he is closer to the water than he actually was. He was probably 15 yards from the edge of the pond.

That picture must be deceiving as they look so close to the water their holes would fill up. I bet they felt safe there as they only had to look over half of their property. But they weren't looking very well when you shot them. :signbummer8tl:

You can't really tell that well in the video, but there is a pretty steep slope down to the waters edge, and the lens compressed the scene to where it looks like he's right at the water, but is actually about 15 yards away uphill.
