Longmeadow Testimonial

Good Afternoon Ty and Heath

I have to tell you all that was the very best hunt that I have been on. The dogs were fun and my elbows even got sore from all the shooting. The Service was top notch and the resort was unbelievable.

Thanks for a great time.

If you ever need a reference please do not hesitate to give them my name and phone # Hope the Video will help you all out.

If you get a chance would you mind sending me a picture of your big white wolf and also what you made those shot out of that we had the first night there and the last night.

Thanks again for everything and hope I can someday return the good time you all.

Why Hunt Prairie Dogs

  • Prairie Dogs are Rodents.
  • They are very susceptible to bubonic plague. There have been numerous instances of plague infected prairie dogs in Colorado.
  • They destroy farm crops. Prairie dogs compete with livestock for forage. They clip vegetation to maintain a view of their surroundings and eat the same grasses that would otherwise be available for horses and cattle.
  • Their burrow holes are dangerous to cattle and horses.
  • Due to a lack of natural predators, they breed at an alarmingly fast rate.
  • Improve your shooting skills.
  • Prairie dog hunting is fun!

How to Hunt Prairie Dogs

Prairie dog hunting is best done on sunny days with temperatures below 100 F. During overcast or rainy days, the prairie dogs will stay in their burrows; the theory being that they cannot see the shadows of predators such as eagles or hawks so the stay inside.

The best hunt starts early in the morning. We can put you from 100 – 200 yards of a prairie dog town. Spread a ground cloth and setup a sturdy rest or use our exclusive Prairie Trailer (see below.) As the sun comes up, dial in your scope, scout the town for movement, pick your target, and fire away.
