Prairie dog hunting can offer sportsmen hours of practice and entertainment. Shooting distances can vary depending on weather conditions so plan accordingly to the weather. Prairie dogs are small targets and will stand still, many can give you a few opportunities. Our clients have been known to shoot 500 plus rounds per person per day! However, some days clients shoot less than 100 rounds per person. Regardless, hunting prairie dog in South Dakota is a great opportunity to sharpen skills.
Any rifle is acceptable. We recommend 2 rifles per prairie dog hunter to prevent barrels from overheating. While any firearm will work, we recommend a .223 or a .243 centerfire caliber as your rifle.
