Yeah, local. It's about 45 miles from here. Once you get started on a good prairie dog town it's tough to stop. This type of shooting is surprisingly addicting.

That does look like a lot of fun.
I'm going to have to go somewhere that I can try that someday soon.

I can understand how some of these guys can squeeze out 500-1000 rounds in a day. It wouldn't be hard to do with a full day of this. I was pretty conservative, but I don't think my rifles were ready for that kind of action. I'll give'em a good cleaning when they get done panting.

Never did get a double. I'd screw the timing up or rush the shot and ended up blotching every one.

It's something everyone should do at least once.

The prairie dog towns around here are full of snakes in the fall. I'll post some pictures when I go when it gets a little colder. It's not uncommon to see 10 or 12 rattlers sunning around a praire dog hole.

Brad's invited us all out Todd, didn't you get your e-mail? :sneer:

He's been hitting all the big roadside towns till we get there. Saving the smaller, lesser known, harder to get to towns for us.

Right Brad?................... :confused: Brad?

Must be a different Brad than the one I'm thinking of.    :shrug:   :innocentwhistle:

Most years the shooting at Digger Wars was that hot and heavy.   That time of year we could get in as much as 14-15 hours of shooting a day in good areas.    Could have been barrel burners if we hadn't all brought along lots of firearms.   Most I ever took was 14, but one of the regulars brought 18 one year I think.

No doubt everyone should try a good digger shoot at least once... but I doubt few would leave it at just one.   Very addicting.

I am right there with the ones that have not had the chance go chase little dogs.  It sure does look like fun, even if it would not be a barrel burner day.

When I was a boy, my dad use to take me to shoot prairie dogs alot. We were living in Gillette, Wyoming at the time. It was a hoot. There use to be a huge town of them near Devil's Tower, but last I heard you couldn't shoot them anymore. My uncle said it was like a tourist attraction now or something.......... :shrug:

Oh well..........fond memories.

Looks like y'all had a blast.  :eyebrownod:
