Where's the closest Prairie Dog town ?

10 posts in this topic

Interested in sighting in the new AR-15, where is the closest prairie dog town from here ?

I know SD has many but they are not just around the corner.

The deal went through huh? put up a picture of that bad boy.... I found in my AR, with 1:9 twist that I shoot the 50 grain American Eagle HP flat bases, extremely well. Steer clear of the Wolf Ammunition Val, you will be gald you did.....

Yes deal went through, not quite as I planned, I bought a DPMS Panther Bull Twenty.

Downside is they don't have any in stock, timeframe is 4 weeks frown.gif , but my friend dealer told me last time he ordered one it came in 5 days.

I am buying a scope for it, I'm undecided between a Bushnell Elite 3200 5-15x50 or a Nikon Monarch UCC 5.5-16.5x44

pretty sure either one of those will be a good choice, I am assuming it is a flat top, have you figured out the mounting yet?

I have a couple bowling pins around the house I was going to auger out so I can put some re-rod into....set them out them 300-400 yards if Le Suere would let me....

It's a little expensive but I would like an Armalite, or Bushmaster or DPMS 1 piece mount.

I am studying on this, having a picatinny rail I can mount a handle and front sight in the future and use it this way sometimes.

I like the looks of the 1 piece but decided to get my caller instead of a new scope mount. Search for olympic arms owners association, they have a lot of useful ar-15 information without the bashing you see on other websites

NIKON, dont waste your time with the bushnell, i do alot of prairie doggin and optics are very key. Good luck with the new AR! my bro has a Bushmaster VBAR .223 it is alright but i prefer my bolt HB thumbhole 22-250 but the blackguns are NICE!!

I have never cared for Bushnell scopes.I now own one on my 300 mag[bushnell Elite] and it has been a very good scope for me.It transmits light well,clarity is good and I can make some pretty good long range shots with it.I also have some Leupold scopes and believe me this new scope is not bad at all.

West of River, Missouri that is. I do have the Nikon you are referring to and love it. Do not have the Bushnell on anything so cannot compare that way for you. I will make one suggestion in that you consider the Nikon 6.5 x 20 instead. Will be going out west to shoot PD's next year again. If you are interested I could possibly (Ok, easily) be pursuaded to go a second time. Just don't have time this fall to make it out between being forced to fall fish and deer hunt. Good luck on your decision.

      That sounds encouraging. Did you notice all the dead carp on shore? I wonder what's up with that, a virus or something maybe?

      thats a good priority

      I've never trout fished in MN and was hoping to get some help as a newcomer to the state. I know there are a lot of streams but I've also read that DNR info on them is often out of date and I dont want to drive an hour or more to a desolate stream.    Most seem to either have only browns or only small brooks. I really am after some medium size, 12 to 14 inches, rainbow trout for the smoker so I definitely will release any big browns if I catch one.    I've got waders and a kayak and am willing to do what is necessary to get to good, less pressured water.    Bonus offer, I have 2 very stable fishing kayaks, you can stand up in them, and would be more than happy to let you use one if you wanted to organize a float down river in exchange for showing me a decent spot to get some rainbows. Any takers or advice?    Edit - I live in Andover and would prefer to keep the drive below an hour and a half unless it's a well worth while stretch of water.

      That's a really neat boat

      Unfortunately as close as I came to pulling the trigger I'm going to put it off until next year (might be getting my hands on a little boat later this year though). Buddy of mine has a canoe that we're going to rig up best we can and get out a few times. I'll be buying some decent waders instead and adventuring out that way into the river. 

      Thanks for the advice, it's killing me that I can't get out on the water! House downpayment takes priority though... unfortunately.
