Wonderful day killing "BIG" prairie dogs

Postby Duplex lover » Sun May 13, 2012 6:50 pm

My daughter-in-law and I went out for a morning hunt. +55* in the AM and +80* at noon when we left. 5 mile an hour breeze,wonderful!!! The dogs loved it to,the pups are out and running. Daughter was using sons (husband) CZ 223 with 40gr VG,Redfield 4X12.I had my daughters 243 savage with a 3X9 Bushnell Ellette,shooting 75 gr Blitz kings. We shot till the heat off the barrels made it very difficult to see out of our scopes. Between the two of us we went through a bit over 200 rounds. So many dead body's laying around it was tuff to see what was alive and what was dead, I know I shot several dead ones.WHAT a day!!! :thumbsup:

You guys just shoot them for target or do they tear up your land or something?

So this will be interesting......

I take crap from guys on the forum for shooting and NOT eating Mergansers (which you're not even supposed to eat).....

You turn these dogs inside out and it's a "target".... that's it?

I've got to start telling these guys that Mergansers are "targets" and maybe they'll get off my back...
