Guided Prairie Dog Hunt & long-range shooting lessons
Basic Overview of the Prairie Dog Hunt!
This trip combines a traditional “Shoot Em Up” prairie dog hunt with shooting lessons provided by a highly qualified long-range shooting instructor. During the 3 day event, you’ll spend 1 ½ days burning up a barrel in “target rich” prairie dog towns PLUS 1 ½ days slowing things WAY down to learn how to effectively “stretch out’ to distances most folks only read about. Not to toot our own horn but we’ve had some of the finest long-range shooters serve as instructors for our guests. That said, this event will not likely be one you’ll soon forget!
Where will I be hunting?
Location & Transportation: This hunt will take place on a variety of private land parcels that offer “Target Rich Environments” between Billings and Miles City, MT. Guests typically fly into Billings, MT the day before the hunt, rent a vehicle and arrive in camp by 3pm. From camp, we’ll provide transportation to and from the field for the duration of your stay.
Hunt Style & Terrain: The areas we hunt are smack dab in the middle of densely populated prairie dog towns in sage flats that are easily accessible by vehicle. We’ll simply “roll right up”, unpack our gear, set-up on comfortable shooting benches and have some fun!
