Spring Richardson ground squirrel hunting(aka=gophers)
« on: April 11, 2010, 09:33:15 PM »
I've been busy since January re-loading here and there for our annual trip to Montana. Bought a second 223 to complement my other one. Ya always need two of every thing, right?

Who else heads out of state for gopher, prairie dogs, and badger hunting?

When I get back I'll post a host of pictures. This is a GOF Hunt(good old friends) as we've been friends for nearly 38 years, so there is a lot of BSing going on, political talk, gun talk, swap meet talk, etc.

This year we are going to set up wall tent, cook tent etc. rather than stay in a motel or single-wide. We have access to a family ranch so we'll set up in a swale to get relief from the constant wind.

Those of you that head out or hunt in state for "gophers" please post some pictures.

Never done it, but always wanted too. Looking for a place in Oregon for ground squirrels this year.
 Anyone care to point me in the right direction?  ;)
The definition **special little snowflake  **


A below average kid who is coddled and rewarded for mediocrity, usually by an overprotective mother, a 'sensitive' dad, or the public education system. The term stems from the concept that, like a snowflake, all children are special and unique and thus they should be treasured just the way they are so as to build their self-esteem.

Seems like I read that Montana made a change and will not allow prairie dog shooting on state land until June. This may not be accurate but worth while checking out before you go. Sage rat hunting in Oregon, try the Bend to Burns areas out. Look for the irrigation pivots in the alfalfa fields and ask for permission.
May you have a target rich environment!
