    We used to call them "picket pins" around Great Falls, Mt., and hunted them with bow and arrows. Tough to hit, but a great way to get real skill with a bow. Prairie dogs were also on our list and harder to get close to because of their tendency to alert the whole dang prairie dog town. They disappeared quick when alerted.

    Hey rattler, what do you guys do with the bodies? Do you just leave them there?

    the buzzards need to eat too....................i dont eat ground squirrels..................in a few weeks when my uncles cows quit calving we will break out the center fires and there wont be enough of them left to do anything with anyways.........a 40 grain .224 inch diameter bullet screaming along somewhere around 3,300 feet per second leads to the term "red mist" the rifle above is launching a 36 grain bullet at about 1,050 feet per second, usually leaves tiddy looking bodies like above aslong as it isnt a head shot.

    now i just need a 204 Ruger which will launch a 32 grain bullet at about 4,200 feet per second...............should lead to some interesting results

    when bordom sets in out comes the 45/70 which launches a 405 grain bullet at about 1600 feet per second.............leads to just a half inch hole through the gopher but it also punches through their mounds which leads to interesting shooting opertunities

    Without the red mist and bullets into mounds leading to interesting shooting opportunities and so on, each with its own smilie, even anti-hunters might have left this thread seeing shooting as a good way to control animal populations. When I was in high school, a hunter passed us with a deer tied on his trunk and a red ball on the deer's nose. I thought it was funny at the time, but my father had a fit. The more I think about it, the more I wonder how many anti-hunters were created during that idiot's trip home.
