I would not go with a .30-30 for prairie dog hunting. Even out to 200 yards, the round has quite the sloped trajectory.

I would recommend a bolt-action .223. It is a great prairie dog rifle, it is fun to shoot, it (used to be) easy to find (formerly cheap) ammo, and with the right ammo (Barnes TSX, Nosler Partition) it is also capable of taking deer sized game.
