So a fellow employee and I were chatting about a little dog shooting, when he mentioned that he had some tannerite and was comtemplating putting 1/2 lb. containers out by the holes with some cabbage for some extra fun. Through the discussion, he said he wished he could make little figures that looked a little like the dogs just for some fun (kinda the caddyshack way). So now, since neither of us is a chemist, my idea was to take Play-Do, make a nice 8-12 inch slab with a groove in it, fill it with the tannerite, and mead it until it is mixed in well, then repeat the slad with a groove and mead procedure until it is pretty much all tannerite held together with Play-Do and form it into a little squirrel/prarie dog looking creature.
Now, would the Play-do kill the bang of the tannerite? Do you think it would still go off? Do you think there is anything in the tannerite that could chemically set off the tannerite?

Not very sporting of you

What? Not a very good shot are you? Little prairie dogs to tough to kill without explosives? Like your meat pre-tenderized? Got a cruel streak in you?

Pretty lame gentlemen... and I use that term loosely.

I am headed out to shoot prairie dogs in a few weeks. Just got done loading 3500 rounds of ammo for the trip. Taking my 223, 20tactical and 17Mach4.
Those things look like fun but at the cost, I would rather just put a high velocity round down range and wait for the audible "pop" when I connect.

I have no qualms at all about killing prairie zombie dogs in any way shape or form. They literally destroy the land, costing farmers hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage. Cities struggle to maintain city parks, road ways and more due to P-dog damage. They are a plague in the western US. Anyone who has them on their property invites hunters by the truck load.

On top of that they are vermin, they carry disease rampantly. Have you ever seen a Pdog city thats had plague run though it? Disgusting. Oh and they eat each other. Thats not so unusual in nature, but its pretty crazy to watch a pdogs hug, you shoot one and thirty seconds later the live one starts eating the dead one.

No sir, I won't apologize. Kill them any way you can. And yes, I'd watch that video.

Cute name. Not accurate. No such thing as "prairie zombie dogs." Another way to justify your sociopathic attitude? But, if they are on your property and you want to kill them that is your business.

Apparently you believe everything you read or hear about put out by the American Farm Bureau. Most of it complete bullshit.

Really? Bet you cities spend FAR more to repair damage done by human lowlifes (graffiti, vandalism, litter etc.) than a few holes.


hrgrisso said:

Again, really? Says who?

hrgrisso said:

"Anyone" is, again, a gross overstatement. "Some" would be a better term. Maybe "many" in a couple of states like the Dakotas.

hrgrisso said:

Again, your information is wrong. There are two (2) main diseases that their colonies "can," sometimes carry: sylvatic plague which occurs among many wild rodents, not just P-dogs, and tularemia (also called rabbit fever), which is usually transmitted by ticks. Plague is caused by a bacterium, and fleas are its most common vectors. Want to control the disease, control the fleas NOT the p-dogs. Tularemia is also a bacterium that can be fatal for prairie dogs, but it is much rarer than plague. The plague currently is absent throughout most of the eastern one-third of the prairie dog’s geographic range (i.e., North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas).


hrgrisso said:

Nope. And that matters how in the discussion of your mental stability?

In my experience, most hunters were taught by their fathers (or mothers) to kill quickly and humanely and with respect to the animal your are taking for food. But taking giddy joy in killing slowly, painfully or wastefully does make you somewhat of a psycho and is a leading indicator for future sociopathic and antisocial behavior according to the F.B.I and other law enforcement agencies.

My 2 cents in this is really short. Please don't spread these ideas on a public site where those with the idea that hunters are terrible have access to them. We as hunters already have enough trouble trying to keep the sport alive without others fueling the fire. I understand your thoughts and opinions, I do not condone them, but thats my business. Just keep your ideas to closed circles in casual settings and not written in the stone of the internet. Comments like this may require a lot to erase even once the discussion is over.
Thanks guys.

Sorry I guess I should have state no such thing as zombies before I said that :roll: wow real winner there. BAZINGA!

Or I could have first hand conversations with farmers and ranchers across Arizona, California, Utah, Nevada, Idaho and New Mexico. But thats all bullshit too eh? They destroy the ability of the land to hold crops, and to safely pasture cattle.

My point was not about dollars spent but about an ongoing struggle. If your not able to pick up on the lack of comments about dollars and directly make it about that its your loss. Don't believe me, look up the Denvers Airport and how Prairie Dogs are impacting it.

You're right it may be a bit of overstatement. But I've yet to not be invited by anyone who owned enough property to actually shoot on. Most ranchers and farmers do invite hunters on a very regular basis. And I've tried to maintain a relationship with them to ensure I keep getting invited back. But again I live in the west, no idea what its like in the Dakotas. If thats your experience, well then I can't speak against it.

No disagreement regarding fleas and ticks. However I'm ok with tick dipping my dogs. If you want to go tick dip every pdog town go for it. I live in Arizona. We have prairie dogs and ticks. We also have plague. Link to teach you what you apparently don't know.

Thats some bullshit and I'm calling you out. Bad data, bad use of information, and the wrong application of what you've got. Sounds familiar... Where could I have heard that before? Damn I know I've heard it before. oh yeah, from the anti-gun folks, the anti-hunting folks, the anti-video game folks. The anti-porn folks. Same bs. And in case you missed it, its YOUR BULLSHIT.

Now do I want them to suffer? Nope. Do I want them to die slowly? nope. Do I want them to die painfully? nope. I don't expect them to. So you just made 3 assumptions in a row about me and what I expect while challenging my mental health. They always say there's assholes online. Cheers. I found one.

Might I ask you to seek mental health for projection, paranoia etc? I'm in my masters in right now studying mental health, we go through evaluations ever semester. Might I suggest you do the same?

I'm here on a gun forum numb nuts. I own and use them.

Hunt regularly...next assumtion?


hrgrisso said:

Don't play them but have nothing against them and think the furor over violence in them is overblown and funny.


hrgrisso said:

I like porn. Got lots. Don't know how you got to porn from blowing up animals. That in and of itself probably needs a professional look-see.



hrgrisso said:

Oooh, a loud typer, and I'm commenting on things you've just said so it is actually your bullshit.

Obviously there were several others who read what you wrote and came up with the same conclusion so it's not really projecting on my part.

The fact that you say you don't "want them to suffer," don't "want them to die slowly" and don't "want them to die painfully" is good. Maybe I did read too much into what you wrote and how you wrote it but the apparent glee you ascribed to the idea of blowing them up was a bit disturbing.

And, just as an aside, it is illegal to use those (or any) explosives in a manner for which they were not designed (using something sold as a reactive target for an agricultural use).

Seems the OP was smartest of all of us and stayed out of the fray.

Gotta wait until 10am to have my morning Bloody Mary. Cheers to you too.

Re: I fear for the people and pets around you

My comments weren't assumptions about your gun owning and hunting habits, merely the reactions you've posted sound very similar to the same attacks and arguments used by the other side. Just thought you'd want to know where the flaw is. :lol:

A group of folks projecting are still doing just that. heh. doesn't make it any less projection.

I'm ok with disturbing. Used to have a bumper sticker something in the vein of Here to comfort the disturbed and to disturb the comfortable.

Nothing wrong with differences of opinion. As I said I'd love to see the video. Never said I intended to try it.

Its almost 10, enjoy that Bloody Mary.
