Not sure if you are willing to travel for them, north of you. Nebraska, Valentine area especially, ranchers are pretty decent about letting you on to hunt them. Just ask at local coffee hole there and someone will point in you right direction. Also a bit farther north in South Dakota, the Indian Res. will sell you a day permit to hunt them, plenty of dogs in both areas.

If you want some more info on them in areas of Nebraska I know, shoot me a pm.

In most western Kansas counties, the county Weed Director is responsible for PDog control. If your neighbors complain about the rats and you don't do anything, then the county poisons them and puts it on your tax bill. Consequently, most weed directors are more than happy to direct you to the sources of infestation. Call the county courthouse and ask for the weed director. Mission acomplished. Thumbs up
