i'm new to the boards so this topic may have been discussed before. I was wonderin if there was anyplace in kansa or surrounding area that held prarie dogs that the average person was able to hunt. Thanks in advance.
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.

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