    Just got in from a walk. The dang goghers went crazy on my yard last night. I bet all the ground dwellers are moving. Looks like a great time Adam!

    dlbleak these cinch traps Or these DK-2s will take care of your gophers. When I moved back to Tulsa my yard is pure river bottom sand and I had to learn how to trap gophers and moles otherwise my yard would be a big mound of sand.

    Man I would love to find a place to hunt prairie dogs. Something therapeutic about watching those little turkeys explode.

    To give an idea of our field...this is the main concentration and you can really only see the big mounds from this view...if you zoom in further you see lots more on maps...but you get the idea. And they go further than this screen grab, this is just the main concentration of them.

    I hope all the conditions come together for you this year. I'm looking forward to hearing how your rigs perform!

    I'd like to go out to the panhandle and shoot some prairie dogs.

    I used to have access to a place near Slapout that had one forty-acre pasture absolutely covered with P-dogs. You talk about having a blast! Alas, the owner passed some years back and I no longer have access. I never have had access to a place (private ground) that held any hogs. Kinda' sad ... kinda' glad.

    This is my 5th year going. It started by asking a friend who lives there if he knew of any places, and he hooked me up with a landowner who has a field of the little moving targets. I bought a Savage 93V17 and put a Mueller scope on it and went out with no expectations and was blown away by how much fun it was. Needless to say I was addicted. I ended up getting my dad hooked, and put together an identical rifle for him to shoot...and 2 years later upgraded mine to the Bmag with a more powerful Mueller scope.

    Here's two pics from the first outing.
