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 and varmint hunting in Colorado 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. As the sun comes up, dial in your scope, scout the town for movement, pick your target, and fire away.
