Let’s Go Prairie Dog Hunting with This Open-Sighted .22 Rifle

When thoughts are on hunting prairie dogs, open-sighted .22 rifles are usually not the first pick.

These tiny rodents at long distances are usually the choice of hunters armed with scope-sighted, centerfire cartridges.

Watch as this shooter does a number on them way out with a Marlin Model 60 open sighted .22 rifle.

Prairie dogs are small rodents that can do major damage to lands where livestock graze. Holes in the ground dug by these little critters are a sure broken leg for anything that happens to step in them.

What would you hunt them in Wyoming with? Centerfire cartridges in scope-sighted rifles let you reach way out on those tiny targets. Rimfire Pursuit chose an iron sighted Marlin Model 60 loaded up with Remington 36 grain hollow points.
