Relying on the experience of quite a few others:  They taste absolutely horrible.  Prairie dogs that is, rockchucks are not bad if young.  That I know from first hand experience.

Brings back some memories, we had a place in MT growing up that had a small "hill" in the middle of the field that you could lay on prone and whack away until you ran out of ammo.  It was only maybe 5' above grade but you could literally get a couple of guys to shoot 360 degrees and they just kept coming out of holes.

Hunts Available for 2018

Prairie Dog Hunts - Montana
Our ranch near Miles City has awesome prairie dog shooting with numerous large pd towns on the property. We only had a few hunters on this ranch last year and they ran out of ammo and bought out the nearest sport shop, this ranch is not shot out like many other places are these days. We can take up to 5 hunters at a time. Limited late May, June, July, or early August dates are available. Minimum of 2 shooters per hunt. We suggest each hunter bring a 500 brick of .22 and 200 to 500 rounds of centerfire for each 8 hours of shooting day. Prairie dogs plus any badgers, skunks, or coyotes seen may be taken. Some hunters have even brought pistols and bows to practice shooting them. The 2 day and 3 day hunts include lodging in a cabin on the property and modest guide prepared meals.
$550 ........ 1 Day Hunt, cost per Shooter
$950 ........ 2 Day Hunt, cost per Shooter
$1250 ...... 3 Day Hunt, cost per Shooter

Gopher Hunts - Montana
We have another new ranch to hunt near Bozeman for gophers, these are about half the size of prairie dogs but very fun to shoot too, we shot several hundred .22 at the ranch but this is a bit of a down year for gophers, litters weren't as large this year, so shooting is not as good this year as some years, we prefer to plan gopher hunts for next year. This is your chance to be some of the first outside hunters to hunt this private ranch in Montana next spring. We charge $250 per day per hunter for min of 2 hunters for 2 days, 3 or more hunters $225 per day per hunter, max of 5 hunters. Limited April through June dates next year. We suggest each hunter bring 500 .22 and 200-300 centerfire for each hunt day. Gophers plus any badgers, skunks, or coyotes seen may be taken. Motel accommodations are available in Bozeman, Montana, we pick up and return you to the motel each day.
$450 ........ 1 Day Hunt, cost per Shooter
$750 ........ 2 Day Hunt, cost per Shooter
$950 ........ 3 Day Hunt, cost per Shooter

Ground Squirrel Hunts - NE Washington
This hunt is in NE Washington, north of Spokane. We have several private properties and mountain hot spots to hunt in NE Washington for squirrels, rockchucks, skunks, and coyotes. There will not be as much shooting as the Montana hunts but there will be quite a bit of shooting, the squirrel population needs thinning on some of the properties we lease. Limited to May through June dates. We suggest each hunter bring 200 rounds of .22 and 40 rounds of center fire for each hunt day, you will have a fun time. Lodging and meals are included with this hunt at Bearpaw Outfitters home base near Colville.
$450 ........ 1 Day Hunt, cost per Shooter
$750 ........ 2 Day Hunt, cost per Shooter
$950 ........ 3 Day Hunt, cost per Shooter
