Was talking to a fellow the other day who just got back from Kansas shooting praire dogs. I think BubbaT was with me? Stated he hunted for 3 days and took 2000 rounds -- brought back 300 rounds. Shots were made from 75yrds to 300yrds ... could shoot at them further off if you wanted too, but there were plenty within 300yrds!! Hunted 0n 10000 acres .... said the land owner gave them the gate keys and said go for it!! $100 a day. It is in Syracuse, KS (980 miles from Jackson) -- Hatcher Ranch. Only 1 motel in town at $40.00 a night. --coyote hunting, jackrabbits and prairie dog hunting

Look it up on the net when I go home and here is what they say ...


I could be talked into something like this!!!!!!!!!

Heck, ya'll weren't in Kansas but east CO.
How many Hbar AR barrels would you go through? Trying to get one off a friend of mine. Don't have that many rifles in the calibers needed.
So what we talking here, renting a van and loading up. I'd like to shoot .22 inside 100 yds and 223 past that. Ain't got those high dollar guns, bolt action .22 and an AR or two would do it for me.
'Neck, you think 2-3 days hunting would burn up that many barrels?
Other than the land owner, gas and van, what expense would be involved? Out of state permits? Wouldn't mind taking some bug out bags and see how they do in real world conditions. Lighting a fire in the backyard and really a true test. Behind would be dragging after 2-3 days on the ground, they got in local chiropracters?
