Just got home, the dog's were really gun shy! The lady at Fish and Game in Mobridge was extremely helpful, was nearly ready to call the hunt out of frustration. A lot of driving around, and not much shooting, the rainy weather put a damper on the hunting as well. Shot mainly a .204 Ruger, and my father a .223 Rem. It can be done, but don't expect shooting like a guide put you on a private dogtown!

Northern South Dakota, west of the Missouri river. If you go self guided, on x app is a must for property owners, prairie dog over lay wasn't very accurate, but helped. http://gameandfish.standingrock.org/
