    Default Sask. gopher shoot..! (warning: graphic)

    'Having wanted to go for the last couple of years... 'Finally got the chance and did it.
    Two days of non stop shooting... 'Will be going again soon..!

    'Brought three rifles this trip. A Savage .17HMR, a CZ 457 in .22LR and my old Mossberg 151MB semi auto .22LR.
    From what I was told center fire (.223) isn't really necessary and from my experience now... I think it would be over kill.
    The .17 got most of the work, but the CZ did a fair share too... I didn't bother using the semi. 'Next time.

    Driving in:




    Some of the pasture shot...




    Triple header with the CZ 457 from about 75 yards



    The .17HMR does a good job...

    Great pics. Great hunt. Yes I have a 17 HMR, it’s a great round for small critters.

    An outfitter for gophers...?
    No...
    'Have a friend in the area that took us out to a friends place.
    Apparently there isn't a farmer/rancher out there that doesn't want the gophers shot.

    We shot for two days... I went through 400 rounds of .17hmr and about 200 .22lr.

    Yes... I have done paid shoots in Colorado for Prairie dogs.
    The only problem with them is that the cost has become outrageous... Oh they're fun, but man... 'Hold your nose and empty your wallet Lol

    I went a few years ago to southern alberta with my brother and his friends. Absolute riot. Ton's of shooting. So much that we brought out the muzzleloaders just to change it up. 45cal ball does a good job on those guys as well.
