Here is a link to everything you ever wanted to know about black tailed prarie dogs, but were afraid to ask because you didn’t want to look like you cared. I care, because I want to shoot a bunch of them, and if you are going to hunt something, you should know as much about it as possible, like where it lives, what it eats and how high in the air it goes when you hit it with a .223, 22-250 or a .204 ballistic tip. You should also keep in mind each prarie dog’s potential splat radius so that you can set your video camera correctly to not miss any of the carnage.
Head over to this Theodore Roosevelt National Park page to read all about the Black Tailed Prarie Dog.
I’m going to go to Montana this summer and shoot prarie dogs, so if you know of any good places to hunt, let me know. Either post it here, under “Comments”, or head over to the forum and get in on the discussion of where to shoot prarie dogs. Those of us who are prarie dog newbies would love any information you old pros would be willing to share.
