ive almost given up on prarie dogs. i cant get closer than 800 yards which makes for a good challenge but they are so gun shy they stay down for over an hour between shots. i gave up n found a ton of feral catalina goats near me. u cant get closer than 600 yards but killing a dozen a day sure relieves the stresses of the workin day rut. thank god for hunting. as for shooting the mounds thats just down right funny. im gonna have to try that. i did get about 7 once( i think with one shot) but i was about 500 yards away and had a half barrel of tannerite mixed that i shot when the dogs were out. does that count?
