Should be a fun filled 4th of July week
« on: May 07, 2018, 05:43:40 PM »
I was invited out to central Wyoming (Durkee area) by the Alfalfa farmer I meet last year. I can camp for free at his place. Going to help him fill a few of his crop damage tags. He gets 400 tags each year. When I stopped and talked to him last year to check out him mowing rig I must have made a good impression. He said we'll take prairie goats in the morning a prairie dogs in the afternoon then coyotes at dusk. Really looking forward to this.

Sounds like a whole lotta fun indeed.  400 crop damage tags?  That seems like an incredible amount unless you gotta tag each P-dog!  Better start hitting that reloading bench to get a few hundred rounds at the ready.

Don't forget to post pics, and tell him about T H.  Hope you have a great time!

He owns 5000 acres and about 3500 of it is in alfalfa. If you look at a satellite view of this area it's where the green crop cirlces are. The "prairie goats" as he calls them are actually antelope. He gets the crop damage tags for antelope. During the 30 minutes I talked to him on the road there were about 30 of them in the field he was going to cut.

Wow Dutch, you nailed a homerun with the contact from this guy. Sound like that is going to be a blast.  Best of luck and post pictures.

Speaking of purple shoulder....which guns will you be taking?

 ##$%#1119 Still thinking about this. First impressions
For antelope, 2 270wsm's, Savage Model 14 and my new build (not named yet), 243 Catbird, 243wsm, 25wsm, 308 Browning Varminter, my custom built 270/7mm "Brain Surgeon" and for the really long shots there'll be Long Doc.

For p-dogs, Pistols: Ruger 327FedMag and the new Tarus 17HMR. Rifles: 2 22-250's, 223wsm, 243 Catbird(double duty), and for splatter shots Long Doc

For yotes, all of above!!!!

I'll be taking around a 1500 rounds of ammo.

BTW... Thanks to all for shoulder concerns but when there's fuzz in the crosshairs it don't hurt.

While I'm out there I'm going to talk to him about maybe having the long awaited TH P-Dog shoot at his place. In other words "P-dogBlast". I know Bo said he'd be interested how about anyone else? No license is required for prairie dogs or coyotes on private property.

If you want to estimate your travel distance use Durkee or Worland, WY as the destination. The easiest way to get there is exit I-90 at Buffalo,,WY on Hwy 16 and go west. This will take you through the Bighorn National Forest and some of the most scenic country to Ten Sleep then on to Worland. Worland is a fairly large town with everything you'll want, hotels, restaurants, fast food, groceries, BEER, etc. They have a very nice city campground if you'd like to camp or I can house 6-8 in our big camper. So lodging cost would be just putting up with yours truly.  ;D

I would certainly be interested.  I have been to Montana, but never Wyoming.  Sounds fun!
