A great Wyoming morning.



Log in to see fewer ads
Yesterday my friend and I left town about 0700 and drove about 90 minutes out to the Red Desert area , where we spent the next 3 hours shooting prairie dogs and admiring the scenery. Perfect day, temps in the 70's and lower 80's, almost no wind. I brought my CZ 527 .22 Hornet and 70 rounds of ammo, friend brought a Thompson Center switch-barrel rifle in .204 Ruger with 60 rounds of ammo, we ran dry about 1230 or so, had lunch and came home, it was getting too warm for further activities anyway. We found a real good area to cruise around in and found several good spots that yielded some great shooting. I was impressed with his .204 , highly accurate and made red mist out of everything he hit, little 25 grain bullets really made a splash.

We were surprised to see almost no other wildlife , very few pronghorns and no elk, only one lonely wild horse. No idea why this was so.

Anyway, a great time for two geezers, we have resolved to do it again , and soon.

I'm glad for you. Prairiedogs are few and far between here. In fact the few I know are smart enough to live in town where all they have to worry about are cars and evidently they have them figured out as I never see one squashed. Your weather sounds much nicer than ours. The monsoon flow is early this year and 40%+ humidity is tough when you are used to single digit days.

I recently got back from Montana.

There is a reason that it is nice to leave the desert in the summertime.
