We are experiencing severe drought in the Southwest and the Pdog numbers are far down. I don't hazard a guess about poison use, but poison and plague are MUCH bigger dog-killers than bullets.

Those days of yesteryear, with many opportunities and few "No Hunting" signs, are gone. We will all have to clean up and go to the ranch house to politely ask permission, which favors the locals, as it should be. Chose your friends and your shots wisely. Thank your hosts and make certain to leave gates as you found them unless told otherwise.

Heckola I can't understand why they'd want to do that. I mean good whitetail, elk, lopes spots etc aint tough to come by. But a good PD spot....that's not exactly something that's in every pasture...

Over the years I've seen good spots reduced to not much in not much time at all. Fellas who pull up with 4 or 5 guys and their motor homes and shoot day and night for a week or so.

Nope I can't understand at all why people might be protective of a good place to shoot pd's... smile

I can vouch for the plague stories. we hunted on the Cheenne River Reservation for several years, and had som great shooting. Not quite like the old dayse, but 300 or so on a good day.

3 years ago the whole East side of that rez had plague. I went back to a good sized place that you couldn't keep them under ground at one time and it looked like a hayfield, with only about 30 holes in one spot.

Another one where we shot just wonderfully in the rancher's driveway was also devoid.

We found some on the west half of the rez, but the best town there was empty also.

I am thinking of going elsewhere this coming year.

I'm overdue for another outing, went twice, great time. If I do get the time I think I will call some guides in 'The Varmint Hunters' magazine & pay to get hooked up. With the cost of travel & time I wouldn't mind paying some to be on a good town.

The last 2 times I went near White River, SD.

There is PD shooting in ND...not sure exactly where but a little googling would get you there...so to speak.

Extreme SW ND had lots of towns on private land but many have died off over the past two years. Check out Standing Rock Reservation located south of Bismarck. Have shot PD there many times with great results but not in the recent past.
