    Varmint hunting is a blast!! (and expensive)

    I never shot Praire dogs, but I have shot Ground hogs. I used a .22-250, .223, 6.5x55mm Swedish. Its nice to see a "red mist", through your rifle scope. That means ya dont need the spoting scope for a conformation .

    I understand the reason for shooting Prairie Dogs and Graydiggers, but that really seems like a sensless waste of meat. I say this because growing up in Sisters Oregon my job (age 5-7) was to shoot Graydiggers for the pot and to feed the dogs. I used a 22 to hunt them and wasted very little meat.

    Anyone here purchased the video? I have wanted to know how representative the website's clips are compared to the rest of the video.

    They will scream even louder when the price of vegitables goes up. From the havoc these subterranean vermint, cause on a farm field/eqipment.

    No matter realy. They will scream regardless

    A guy I work with likes to hunt prairie dog with his K98.

    He hits 'em out to 300 yards with irons.

    I figure 8mm Mauser is pretty brutal to the little guys.
