Grr.. we didnt have prairie dogs until our new neighbors moved into their house which had tons off them! NOW WE HAVE HOLES ALL OVER! We took our skid steer and dug out there holes muahahhaha but I don't think that will work as they just re dig them... grr.. does anyone have the same problem? Anyone solve the rodent problem? How
I find persistence helps, or in my case, I have a very willing husband that likes the target practice. He'll sit out for hours shooting at them, and if there are too many, he invites over his buddies and they shoot them too.
Wow that sounds bad, but hey it works! I agree though, they are a pain! Always scares me when I see them on trails or near my pastures, they dig deep holes and I'm paranoid that my horse will step in one and twist an ankle or worse.
So far we have waged war with .22's, and they were still winning, so this year, and with huge reluctance we started a poisoning campaign, which has depleted numbers. In the fall we will dig up all the worst areas and next spring will have another attack on the little b*stards.
Makes me laugh, a little sadly, when we visited the US from the UK, we went to visit prairie dog towns and I oohed and ahhed over the little loves, lined them him in my camera lens and took pics.
Now I have to live with the destructive little *#@* I line them up in my scope and fire.
