Nice shooting, have been really looking at those Franklin uppers.

Ponyroper looks like you have some good places to shoot. Wish we had something like that on the eastern side of the state.

I've been stumbling around the south central part of the state for my new job for the last two summers and have slowly built up a list of pdog towns. Haven't hunted them all yet but it's obvious that lots of other people know about them too. My hope is that I can find a couple that no one else knows about cause once the dogs have been educated shooting gets pretty tough later in the summer. That's when you need the WSM 20 grain shells and a well tuned gun AND, you need a decent rangefinder or you're just wasting bullets. It puts that goofy grin on your face though when you make a nice 300 yard pop on a fat old dog who never even knew what hit him. One thing I would suggest is that you learn how to use Google Maps or something like it. It takes a lot of patience but I've found several dog towns by just zooming in to the highest resolution and crisscrossing rough country until I see a dog town. I have a couple to check out next spring that look promising. Checked out a couple that turned out to be abandoned or poisoned so it's not foolproof.

I know what you mean, around 12 -14 years ago I went to high school in mandan. My buddies and I would load up with a parent and destroy dog towns. I still have the .22-250 my grandfather used. You want to talk about seeing a dog "pop"

I have found a few here around fargo, but nothing substantial. Using a .22 really adds to the fun as well.

I'll add a couple of more.

Here is a Gray Fox I took with my Contender Carbine, with an MGM barrel and the 25 grain ammunition.


-----

These are a series of pictures of one of the coyotes I took at 154 yards while it was sitting. I took this with the 20 grain bullet, out of my Contender Carbine. It was a one-shot kill, with the coyote being dead right there, and falling backwards on its haunches.

How we found him:


Entrance Spot was only a small trickle of blood:


No exit wound:

-----
Here are a couple of pictures of a NE California hunt for ground squirrels. I was using my Contender Carbine, with the 20 grain bullets.

These are sure great pictures here!

The two good sized varmints I shot with my WSM showed the same results.

One, a hefty feral critter, had a tiny 20gr exit wound. The big tom died right in his tracks of an angled body shot. He was causing a lot of problems around the farm. The owners live trapped a dozen at home but the last one was too smart. I shot him about a 1/4 to a half a mile north of the house where I was squirrel hunting in their woods January 31, 2015. It was a miserable day, cold rain turning to snow and I was cold and soaked. I was surprised to see the varmint.

I also nailed 4 squirrels that day. It was a good day.

I'd post pics of my Prairie dog hunt from earlier this year in Montana but when your shooting at 20-50 yards with a 17 magnum I couldn't really find any whole dogs. Just pieces here and there...
