If you're looking to bolster your marksmanship before the fall season rolls around, there may be no better way to do it than a good prairie dog shoot. Varmint shooting, in general, provides big game hunters with an opportunity to get on point, while still throwing lead at living, moving targets. Plus, it's just a heck of a good time. Digital Managing Editor Shawn Skipper recently had the opportunity to join Hornady and Howa on a prairie dog hunt in Wyoming. You can get an inside look at the trip with the photos embedded above.
