Ground Squirrel Hunting = prairie dogs
« on: March 02, 2015, 02:31:17 PM »
  :D Still kinda wintery out that way.

It was 6* when we got there, calm, and FULL sun.

I took BOTH the 250 and the 6 out with me. I had never used the 6 in a hunting environment and still have the crappy Bushnell scope on it so I wanted a back up. That was a waist .

 I never fired the 22/250 and the 50 shells I packed in. I was a little handy capped  with the scope but I did alright. The 55 gr ballistic tips did what there supposed to do. The dogs would fly ten feet in the air and be designated by time they hit the ground. Some out to over 300 yards. Daughter-in -law had the 204 and did very good, Her hubby my boy used the 17 hornet and was impressed with it too.  Her father  only had a 22 mag but killed quite a few too, more around the 150 yard mark. We quite at noon'ish and hiked out. The sun was melting the permafrost making that a real nasty hike with two guns, a back pack and my coyote belt. All in all for a first of March it was a good little dogen trip.

Looks like fun. My 30.06 does that on young ground hogs. I've never had the chance to shoot Pdogs, probably a lot more targets than a 50 acre ground hog field.

  O0 Awesome, D! I say you are our top varmint hunter, hands down. I sure like  your equipment and shooting, too.

It is hard for us folks here in the midwest to imagine all those targets.

All those targets and so little time!  :twisted:
