Head west to prairie dog country. Or, go out to farm country and ask about hunting coyotes.

For the how-to-do-it, there are a fair number of threads here on the subject. Do a bit of looking...

Mid June thru September, South Dakota has the best prairie dog shooting. Good public access to the Buffalo Gap Nat'l Grasslands at many locations. Buy your map at their main office in Wall, South Dakota.

Most of the Stockman's Associations are friendly to coyote shooters. Plan to have a notarized document which states that you will be 100% responcible for your own medical expenses if injured on their land(s). This doc should also state that you will not leave gates open, start a fire of any type, promise to obey state game laws, etc.

Do not touch a dead prairie dog. They're often infested with fleas that carry bubonic plague.

Good shooting to you.
