Have a few friends (listed: Retired Federal Judge practices as a fill in, Retired Expert Witness in Firearms and ballistics, and Retired Army Colonel)  that want to go shooting in North Dakota, South Dakota, or similar they had a friend who had a ranch who had died and they have never gone anywheres else as they have gone to his place for the last 20 years. 
 
They do not care how much they spend they just want to go somewhere that is heavily populated with Varmints (PD's) that they can do their fair share of good work they want to spend 5-10 days they all use 22-250's and .223's and are crack shots out to 500yrds they preferably shoot off of tables or carry varmint benches, they prefer to use table mounted Steady Point Bench Shooting Rests and just smoke cigars and tell stories. 
 
They are mostly Trap Shooters and BS'rs but are a great group of guys, the only true friends I have that can relate somewhat to me.  They kinda put a bug in my ear to try to find someplace to go to P Dog Hunting(exterminating) as it has been 4 or 5 years since they have gone and want to get back out before another kicks the bucket (they really are not that old in mid 60's).
 
Wondering if anyone has any ideas or has a rental or can refer a friend of a friend type thing. 
 
Don't even know if they could make it happen this year but they asked so I am just putting it out there...
 
Any input is awesome, thanks for the time...

If you're willing to drive to New Mexico and can wait until spring, you're welcome to go with me during one of my annual trips.  Send me a PM if you're interested.  The places I go usually don't cost much, if anything (one is free, the other costs $20/ gun per day), but I have to schedule with the landowner(s) in advance to make sure there aren't any large groups shooting at the same time.

 Subscribe to 'The Varmint Hunters asso', you get the magazine & they have all kinds of outfitters advertised. South Central SD is ground zero for 'dogging'. I would hook up with a guide for that kind of outfit & you'll be right on dogs. Mid June is about the best time to go.

starting at Baggs, 100 mi, north and 100 miles south, continue this swath until you reach Utah, no charge -- take change of clothes lots of food and ammo, if you don't want to stay at the hunt site, lodging in Rawlins and Rock Springs- no catering available. The dogs will still be out but they change their habits with the sun in the fall.

Thank you for the input.
 
I really really really appreciate it.
 
I looked up each suggestion and even called the establishments in Baggs and around to Rock Springs, Learned alot about all the little towns I would really enjoy.  Learned the Laws of WY and like those even better when it comes to Varmints, especially PD's.
 
60-600 population sounds like a place I would enjoy visiting the quiet life.
 
Some of the Old ranches and Bed and Breakfast places look spectacular.
 
Found a couple of loops for one day or two day outings.
 
Have just been told that 16 hours is the max they want to do from zip 43537.
 
And that will take two days of travel. Fine by me I can't wait to get old.
 
Because of all the gear and health related issues we have to drive.
 
It really sounds like SD is where they want to go.
 
Still would love to take suggestions.

if you go to baggs be prepared to be in the middle of no where, and its also home to rattle snakes. eastern wyoming may have some decent places to go. ask ernie bishop a member here if he has any places he would share with you. he lives in gillette wyoming.
