    A couple weeks ago I went on my annual Prairie Dog Safari to the plains of Montana. I have chased these critters all over the Western states. South Dakota, Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado and Montana.
    Twelve of us from 6 states met on the prairie in central Montana. It was quiet a gang and we all had a good time.
    This year the numbers were way down due to hot extremely dry year last year and 4 feet of snow which fell in January and just stayed.
    This was probably my last trip, but here are a few photos.

    There are 2 Types of Prairie Dog Shooters.
    Long Range and Short Range...Short being 300 yards and under.
    I am of the Blood and Guts under 300 yards type. But to answer your Question, This year about 300 yards. I used to go with some fellas who started at 1000 and worked out from there. Custom Rifles, Ammo, $3000 scopes, and a LOT of LUCK.
