Thread: Prairie Dog Poppin'

  1. #21
    I'd be careful popping Prairie Dogs -- they are a protected species in Utah. You can be federally prosecuted for shooting them.

    The 5Mile pass to Jericho areas used to be heavily populated with Jack Rabbits, Prarie dogs and Coyotes.. nothing remains. Everything decimated. Never understood why its fun to blast these little critters, only to let them rot..

    There are many ranchers /farmers in Montana,Wyoming, Colorado and the Dakota's that welcome hunters to thin out the population of prairie dogs. They cause a lot of problems with crops and livestock. These are not the same prairie dogs that are protected in Utah.

    They are right there with mice and rats.

    As for Five Mile Pass that is what happens when you have a large population of people living that close to an area everybody loved to use for shooting.

    It doesn't make much sense to me to just blow them up like that for the hell of it. But if some rancher or farmer hired me to take care of what is an obvious problem, I'd pick them off all day long.

    These things will never go extinct. There's a colony of what must be at least 30 living on a piece of land nearby that's about a big as two semi trucks. It's right up against apartment balconies and they throw vegetables out there.

    It's too bad we never figured out how to eat the things.
    Let's go logic for a moment...

    Oh, I've eaten them.. not really too much different than squirrels or sage grouse.
