Re: ND PD Hunt 7-20-2018

870slugger and bullseye-69-- I definitely had a GREAT time in spite of the little inconsiderate farts who messed up my afternoon shooting. I am definitely paying for my fun because my back, ribs and hips are still hurting today--four days after the PD shoot. I guess if I want to play I have to pay ...

ND PD Hunt 7-20-2018

Last Friday I headed out for some leisure time in a couple prairie dog towns down in the National Grasslands in North Dakota. While my back, ribs and hips still give me considerable pain, I needed to get out the house and recreate!!! The weather forecast called for 80º with winds from 4 to 7 mph ou...

I'm BACK!!! ND PD hunt story

The last time I had been out shooting prairie dogs was December 2, 2017, when I was using the last shells I had loaded for my Stiller Predator action .17 Remington before I replaced the barrel. I was going to use that same rifle today with its new barrel. I parked the pickup at about 1:45, got my s...

Re: One last ND Prairie Dog Hunt on 12-2-2017

bullseye-69-- That's good advice--I don't want to fall down at all!!! I did see my doctor on Friday, December 8, 2017, and he told me to cut one of my meds for high blood pressure in half. He also set up an appointment with a neurologist for me, but the earliest I can get in is February 12!!!! I wo...

One last ND Prairie Dog Hunt on 12-2-2017

The barrel on my Stiller Predator action .17 Remington is showing some heat cracking at the throat. I have decided to put a new barrel on this action and had 14 rounds still unfired. I had been using 30 gr. FBHP Starke bullets and wanted to shoot those rounds before I replaced the barrel. I had for...

Hogpatrol--Yup, I definitely had a good time. Like you hinted, I don't think the prairie dogs had much fun though. :lol:

Another ND PD Shoot on 10-20-2017

The weatherman was predicting “PERFECT” temperatures and winds for prairie dog shooting for Friday—like I believe what they say. Anyway I woke up Friday morning and the weather forecaster was right!!! It was 34º and the wind was out of the south at about 5 mph. I rolled out of bed and did my physic...

Re: Friday, 10/13/2017 Unlucky for ND PDs

bullseye-69--It was a good hunt, cold, but good. I'm heading out again tomorrow morning. This time temperatures are supposed to reach the mid 70s. I'll believe that when it happens.

Friday, 10/13/2017 Unlucky for ND PDs

I woke up Friday morning and the weather forecaster was right!!! It was 27º and somewhat cloudy. I reset my alarm and got another hour of sleep. I didn’t leave my garage until 9:22 a.m. and it was still only 33º. When I finally reached where I was going to park my pickup it was 10:14 a.m and the te...
