VARMINTS

Our high volume gopher hunts are done in the month of June as the pups are emerging from their dens and the grass is still short. In Alberta gophers are abundant and can be found on nearly every pasture in the area. Most shots are in the range of 10 feet to 200 yards +. With the high volume shooting you can do, accurate 22's or 17's rimfire's are the caliber of choice. They are low recoil, have cheap ammo, and low noise levels.

Richardsons Ground Squirrels (AKA gophers/prairie dogs) are a burrowing animal that spend its winters in hibernation and its summers eating the grass and crops from the farms and ranches. They are about 4 1/2 to 8 inches tall and 2 or 3 inches thick. With a good rifle you will be amazed at your improved accuracy, after a day of shooting hundreds of rounds at ranges up to 200 yards.

Hunters will stay in the camp lodgings which are described on accommodations section of the website. The lodging is located near the hunting area with meals and bedding provided. For those staying more than one day, the day's start with a good breakfast on the farm then we drive out to the land selected for hunting that day. Gophers will come up most days around 9 am and stay up until 6pm, lunch will be in the field. With the large numbers of gophers it is important that you bring extra magazines for your rifle at least 4 is best and an abundant supply of ammunition. Your guide will be busy spotting gophers for you as well as reloading magazines.
